Bortles fumbles twice, benched (1:10)

Michael DiRocco ESPN Staff Writer 

Jaguars coach Doug Marrone says he's really tired of the turnovers (they're minus-12 after today): "I'm focused on how do we stop turning the ball over. It's hard for me in my mind to sit here right now and try to say if we can do this, we can do...we can't do s--- until we stop turning the ball over period. That's just how it is."

Jaguars coach Doug Marrone on benching QB Blake Bortles and being upset at the offense: "Thought process was you can take all 11 out, you don't have enough people to put in. Thought process: 'Hey listen, I'm going to take the quarterback out.' Not like he had he played worse anyone out there. He had two fumbles. I just literally did it to try and get a damn spark from this football team to put everyone on notice. They have to focus and go out there and play better. At points in second half they did it. That's not fair to the QB, but that's how the business is....Questions will be who is your starting QB next week, focus will be on that. For me, it is on everyone."

Browns deal RB Hyde to Jaguars for 5th-rounder

The Browns have traded running back Carlos Hyde to the Jaguars, who remain without Leonard Fournette (hamstring). Cleveland is expected to turn to rookie Nick Chubb as its starter.

Jaguars RB Leonard Fournette will miss Sunday's game against Houston at TIAA Bank Field with a right hamstring injury. It will be the third consecutive game – and fifth overall – that he has missed with the injury. TE James O' Shaugnessy (hip) also will not play. Fournette did not practice this week but he did some running and worked off to the side during practice. DE Calais Campbell (ankle/hip) is questionable.
