Jags' Henne, Bortles sharp in 20-19 loss to Bears...Bears cornerback Fuller leaves with ankle injury

CHICAGO (AP) - Chad Henne passed for 130 yards and a touchdown, and Blake Bortles threw for 160 in relief before backup quarterback Jordan Palmer rallied the Chicago Bears to a 20-19 preseason victory over the Jacksonville Jaguars on Thursday night.

     Palmer, trying to beat out Jimmy Clausen for the No. 2 job, led Chicago to two fourth-quarter touchdowns. Senorise Perry scored on a 5-yard run with 50 seconds left, and C.J. Wilson intercepted a pass to seal the win after Henne and Bortles picked the Bears apart.

     Jared Allen made his first appearance for Chicago. The star offseason acquisition finished with one tackle for a loss on an otherwise quiet night. He sat out last week's preseason-opening win over Philadelphia after he missed practices because his wife had a baby.

     Henne showed mobility in the pocket and completed 12 of 17 passes before leaving with a 13-7 lead in the second quarter.

     CHICAGO (AP) - Chicago cornerback Kyle Fuller left the Bears' preseason game against the Jacksonville Jaguars on Thursday night because of an ankle injury.

     A first-round pick from Virginia Tech, he was injured on the opening position. Drafted 14th overall, Fuller has been playing with the first team in nickel situations.

     He started 42 of 50 games at Virginia Tech and had 129 solo tackles along with six interceptions, 21 pass break ups and four forced fumbles in his career. He had 24 tackles, broke up 10 passes and picked off two in nine games last season.
