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.
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.
