Bortles to quarterback 2nd half of tonight's game

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- The Jacksonville Jaguars visit the Chicago Bears tonight in the second of four preseason games.

You can watch the entire game right here on WTLV NBC 12 with kickoff scheduled for 8:06 p.m.

First Coast Sports Director Chris Porter will host a short pre-game show prior to kickoff. He recently sat down with former Jaguars quarterback Mark Brunell to get his thoughts on Blake Bortles' performance so far during training camp and the preseason.

Bortles, the #3 overall pick in the 2014 NFL Draft, will play the entire second half tonight according to head coach Gus Bradley. Chad Henne will play the entire first half.

Toby Gerhart should see his first action of the preseason tonight. The free agent acquisition from the Minnesota Vikings is expected to be the Jaguars top running back this season.

Wide receivers Cecil Shorts, Allen Robinson, and Tandon Doss will not play tonight as they continue to recover from injuries.

Middle linebacker Paul Posluszny did not make the trip with the team to Chicago. He has a bicep contusion which is believed to be minor. Nate Stupar will start in his place.
