 Senorise Perry scored on a 5-yard touchdown run with 50 seconds left and the Chicago Bears rallied for a 20-19 victory over the Jacksonville Jaguars in a preseason game Thursday night at Soldier Field.

The Bears trailed 19-7 going into the fourth quarter before scoring two touchdowns. The first was a 1-yard run by rookie running back Ka'Deem Carey with 7:55 remaining.

Both fourth-quarter scoring drives were led by quarterback Jordan Palmer, who is battling Jimmy Clausen for the Bears' No. 2 job behind starter Jay Cutler.

Chicago's only points in the first half came on a 4-yard touchdown pass from Cutler to wide receiver Brandon Marshall. Cutler finished 7-of-9 for 75 yards in limited action.

Jaguars quarterbacks Chad Henne and rookie Blake Bortles had good nights against the Bears. Henne threw a first-quarter touchdown pass to rookie Marqise Lee and Bortles completed 11-of-17 passes for 160 yards. Henne connected on 12-of-17 passes for 130 yards and was sacked once in the first half.

Defensive end Jared Allen made his Bears debut and had one tackle for a loss.

Chicago rookie cornerback Kyle Fuller injured his right ankle on the opening kickoff and did not return to the game.
