Jaguars HC Doug Marrone said Monday that QB Jake Luton will "likely" start against the Packers this weekend. QB Gardner Minshew is expected to remain sidelined with his thumb injury. Luton flashed in his debut yesterday, notably on a 73-yard TD strike to WR D.J. Chark. But he graded out just 21st among QBs on the week, according to Pro Football Focus. Luton remains just a lower-end QB2 for Week 10.
Jaguars HC Doug Marrone confirmed on Monday that QB Gardner Minshew (thumb) is out for Sunday's game against the Texans. Marrone also said that QB Jake Luton will take most of the starter reps in practice this week. That obviously makes him the favorite to start over QB Mike Glennon. Luton is a 6th-round rookie out Oregon State who posted a mediocre 62% completion rate and 7.6 yards per attempt in his lone full season as starter last year. Luton did at least toss 28 TDs vs. 3 INTs. He doesn't bring any rushing upside, though, and won't be a Week 9 fantasy option.
