Jacksonville, FL (SportsNetwork.com) - Jacksonville Jaguars quarterback Blake Bortles is on track to start Thursday night's game against Tennessee as long as he feels OK during a workout before the game, his coach said.

Bortles suffered a sprained right foot on Sunday against Baltimore but played the entire game. He was out of a walking boot on Tuesday and practiced again on a limited basis Wednesday.

Bortles is officially listed as questionable to play, but coach Gus Bradley said Wednesday the team is leaning toward him being on the field against the Titans, according to the Jaguars' official website.

The rookie was sacked eight times on Sunday while making his 11th consecutive start for the Jaguars.

Backup Chad Henne would start against Tennessee if Bortles is ruled out. The Jaguars signed rookie quarterback Stephen Morris from the practice squad to the active roster.

Henne started the first three games of the season before being replaced by Bortles, who was the No. 3 overall pick in May's draft.
