The announcement Saturday morning comes two days after the Jaguars started Henne in their third preseason game and a little more than a week after Marrone opened up the job up for competition.
Analysis: Marrone indicated the competition between Bortles and Henne would continue into the preseason finale after neither quarterback did enough to win the job in the Jaguars' 24-23 loss to the Carolina Panthers at EverBank Field on Thursday night.

Henne completed 8 of 14 passes for 73 yards. He lofted two perfect deep balls to rookie Keelan Cole and Allen Robinson, although Cole dropped a would-be touchdown for the second time in as many games.
Analysis: Henne also was sacked three times and had a pass batted down at the line of scrimmage. He led the Jaguars on two scoring drives in five possessions, the first one aided by a 51-yard run on a fake punt. On Friday, the Jags announced that they have not decided on a Week 1 starter.

Analysis: More so due to the general uselessness of Blake Bortles than his own success, Henne seems to be the odds-on favorite to start under center for Jacksonville, as Doug Marrone declared the team's QB competition open.
