JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- The Jacksonville Jaguars' current and future quarterbacks took the field together for the first time Tuesday for the team's first of 10 off-season practice sessions.

Incumbent Chad Henne and rookie Blake Bortles took the majority of snaps in Tuesday's OTA, with Henne working strictly with the No. 1 unit, Bortles directing the second team. Bortles was the No. 3 overall selection in the 2014 draft, but Jaguars general manager Dave Caldwell said at that time Henne would continue as the starter.

All but one member of the Jaguars' 90-man roster participated in the voluntary practice. Veteran defensive end Chris Clemons was tending to personal family business, but coach Gus Bradley said he was hopeful Clemons would join the practices soon. Several other players were withheld from action due to previous injuries.
