JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) -- The Jacksonville Jaguars are sticking with quarterback Chad Henne through the bye week.

Coach Gus Bradley said Tuesday that ''we will continue with Chad.'' Coming off a 42-10 loss against San Francisco in London, the Jaguars (0-8) play at Tennessee on Nov. 11.

Henne has started five games, including the last three, this season. He has completed 60.6 percent of his passes for 1,450 yards, with three touchdowns and five interceptions.

Gabbert has completed 48.8 percent of his passes for 481 yards, with one TD and seven INTs in three starts. The former first-round draft pick has shown little progress in three seasons. Jacksonville's new regime planned to give him every opportunity to prove he could be a starter, but Gabbert has struggled in the pocket and failed to stay healthy.
