FFToday's Take: As a first-round pick entering his fifth season, the surgery leaves Bortles in even more limbo, as his fifth-year club option is only guaranteed for injury. Bortles' place on the roster was already tenuous given the likelihood of quarterbacks such as Kirk Cousins and Alex Smith expected to be available at the start of the new league year. At the moment, it's looking like Bortles may not be on the Jacksonville roster when the middle of March rolls around.
