The Jacksonville Jaguars will start Chad Henne at quarterback again in Week 7. Henne started for the Jaguars against the Denver Broncos in Week 6.
Chad Henne will start again this Sunday vs Chargers as Blaine Gabbert continues to heal from hamstring strain. #Jaguars

Henne wasn’t horrendous against the Broncos, he completed 27 of 42 passes for 303 yards. Not too bad when you consider that Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning completed 28 of 42 passes for 295 yards.
The difference? Henne threw 0 touchdowns and 2 interceptions. Take away those interceptions and it is probably the best fame of his season for the Jaguars.
Chad Henne has played a lot this season in place of Blaine Gabbert. This will be his fourth start of the season. On the season Henne is completing 58.4% of his passes for 904 yards and has thrown two touchdowns to 4 interceptions.
In Week 7 the Jaguars take on the San Diego Chargers, who have a less than strong pass defense. They’re allowing 288.8 yards per game, a mark that is 27th best in the NFL.
Of course Henne just played the Broncos and they had the 32nd ranked pass defense and didn’t do too stellar.
