The Jacksonville Jaguars are making changes — just not the one many outsiders want to see.

The Jaguars announced Wednesday that rookie Luke Bowanko will start at center against Indianapolis on Sunday and veteran Sam Young will start at right tackle. Chad Henne, however, remains the starting quarterback ahead of rookie Blake Bortles.

Coach Gus Bradley made the moves after one of the worst offensive performances in team history. Jacksonville allowed a franchise-record 10 sacks and managed just 148 yards — including a 63-yard, busted-coverage touchdown pass from Henne to tight end Marcedes Lewis — in a 41-10 loss at Washington.

Bowanko replaces journeyman Jacques McClendon. Young replaces Cam Bradfield, who was waived Tuesday.
