Jaguars sticking with Glennon atQB


JACKSONVIL­LE, Fla. — Quarterbac­k MikeGlenno­n, a former ChantillyW­estfield standout, is getting another start for the Jacksonvil­le Jaguars even though Gardner Minshew is fully healthy.

Coach DougMarron­e

said Wednesday he’s sticking with Glennon at Minnesota (5-6) on Sunday. He added that Minshew has been cleared to practice in full after recovering from a sprained thumb on his throwing hand, an indication Marrone and his staff have given up on the 2019 sixth-round draft pick who was a rookie sensation.

It probably helped that Glennon was solid in his first start since Week 4 of the 2017 season. He completed 20 of 35 passes for 235 yards and two touchdowns in a 27-25 loss to Cleveland last week.

His best throws went for scores, a 46-yarder to Collin Johnson and a 2-yard strike in tight coverage to Tyler Eifert.

Glennon didn’t have a turnover— the first time since the season opener Jacksonvil­le played a clean game— and wasn’t sacked.
