Nick Foles won a Superbowl with the Philadelphia Eagles on 8/16/18. Now, he was ready to help the Jacksonville Jaguars.
Unfortunately, the well respected quarterback suffered a season ending injury, as he broke his collarbone on Sunday’s game versus the Chiefs. Perhaps this left uncertainty for the team, as they also suffered a loss in their home stadium in Jacksonville.
The final score was 40 to 26. Foles is a former Super Bowl MVP and a good leader on the football field. Nick Foles was picked up as a free agent in the offseason. He did well until he was hit in the first quarter.
The injury came when Chiefs defensive tackle Chris Jones, drove Nick Foles into the ground. However, Foles did manage to release the ball…scoring a 35-yard touchdown pass to DJ Chark.
Nick ended up breaking his left clavicle bone. Backup rookie quarterback replaced Foles and did well completing 22 out of 25 passes for 275 yards, scoring two touchdowns and threw one interception during the game. Now, Minshew will be the starter.
Jaguars head coach Doug Marrone confirmed the news to reporters after the game. “It was unfortunate,” Marrone said after the loss. “You’d really like to see how the game would’ve worked itself out with Nick.”
From what is understood, Foles will undergo surgery on Monday. However, there has been no timetable for when he will return. The best-case scenario, might be him returning within six weeks time. Nick was taken off the field and X-rayed before returning on the sideline with a sling on.
This is the second time Foles has broken his collarbone. Back in 2014, with the Eagles, Foles was out of commission for 8 weeks time. When Foles was asked about his injury during the postgame he said, “This one’s worse than 2014, but I’m optimistic it will heal quicker.”
