Who’s Counting? Jaguars Make Another QB Change

Videos by OutKick

The Jacksonville Jaguars are going to try something different this week.

No, not just actually winning another game — though rumor has it, they may try that, too. But the big news is they are changing quarterbacks. Again.

According to Jaguars coach Doug Marrone, this week’s starter will be Mike Glennon. Glennon will replace Jake Luton, who replaced Gardner Minshew.

The Jaguars lost all three games with Luton. They’ve lost nine straight heading into Sunday’s home game against the Cleveland Browns. So that makes the Jaguars 1-9 after somehow beating the Indianapolis Colts in Week One.

Minshew has been out because of a thumb injury, and Marrone suggested Minshew could serve as Luton’s backup this week. But Marrone wants Minshew to go through a full week of practice before being inserted back into the starting lineup.

Meanwhile, at 6-foot-7, Glennon is now the NFL’s tallest starting QB. He spent last season with the Oakland (now Las Vegas) Raiders, and the season before that with the Arizona Cardinals. He last started as a member of the Chicago Bears in 2017.

In other words, the Jaguars may be changing quarterbacks, but the results will likely stay the same, as they keep on battling the Jets for the No. 1 overall draft pick.
