National Football League trade rumors: Jaguars not looking to deal for QB

Bortles, the Jaguars' starting quarterback for the last 68 games, will start for the team when it plays the Philadelphia Eagles at Wembley Stadium in London Sunday.

The Jaguars addressed the situation at around 9:30 p.m ET on Saturday, saying that "any discipline will be handled internally" without confirming any details of the report other than four players being detained over an unpaid bill.

According to The London-based Sun, the players were accused of trying to leave the London Reign Showclub, which features burlesque and circus performers, without paying their tab. Now, they travel to London to face a Jacksonville Jaguars team facing a similar uphill battle.

Both scored 29 Premier League goals during their career, with the latter scoring his goals for Manchester City and Southampton. Alex Iwobi has credited "world-class" Mesut Ozil with helping him develop into a key man in Arsenal's side.

Coach Doug Pederson pushed back this week against reporters who questioned his play calls late in a 21-17 loss to the Carolina Panthers.

Sunday's game, which will mark the NFL's third and final game in London this season, will be the Jaguars' sixth in Europe since the National Football League began hosting games there. The Jaguars are on their third-string left tackle, the other four offensive line starters are dealing with nagging injuries, and two tight ends have been lost.

Information from ESPN's Michael DiRocco was used in this report.
