Jacksonville Jaguars quarterback Blake Bortles is questionable for Thursday night's game against the Tennessee Titans with a right mid-foot sprain, the Jaguars announced on Monday.

Bortles was injured during a sack in the fourth quarter against the Baltimore Ravens on Sunday. He played the entire game, finishing with 210 passing yards and an interception while being sacked eight times. He leads the league with 17 interceptions and has been sacked 46 times, second only to San Francisco's Colin Kaepernick.

Bortles said the short week will impact his recovery, but he is optimistic about his chances of playing, Hays Carlyon of the Florida Times-Union reports.

“I’ll do as much rehab as possible,” Bortles said. “With it being a short week, you have to do a lot more a lot quicker. I think so, definitely [that he’ll play]. We have a couple days to get ready. I plan on playing, so we’ll see.”

Since replacing Chad Henne in Week 3, Bortles has started the last 11 games for the Jaguars. The No. 3 pick in the 2014 draft, Bortles has completed 60.8 percent of his passes for 2,676 yards, 10 touchdowns and 17 interceptions. Jacksonville has gone 2-11 in his starts.

If Bortles can't play on Thursday, Henne is expected to get the start.

The Jaguars (2-12) host the Titans (2-12) on Thursday at 8:25 p.m. ET in their home finale.
