The hit was laid down by Chiefs defensive end Chris Jones, and came on the same play that Foles connected with DJ Chark for a 35-yard touchdown pass. That would be his only touchdown pass of the afternoon, as his Jaguars debut came to a screeching halt. Backup Gardner Minshaw took over in relief after getting selected in the sixth round of last April's NFL Draft. He did go 22-of-25 for 275 yards, two touchdowns, and one interception the rest of the way, including completing his first 13 attempts, which is the most to start a career in the past 40 years. As it stands right now, the Jaguars do not have another quarterback on the active roster, but did sign Chase Litton to the practice squad last week.
Foles admitted after the game that there was not doubt with the severity of the injury, saying "I knew it right away." The last quarterback to suffer a similar injury was Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers, who missed eight games after suffering the injury on October 15th, 2017. Foles signed with the Jaguars on a four-year, $88 million contract last March, which included a franchise-record $50.125 million in guaranteed money. He does have a history of clavicle injuries, missing the final eight games of the 2014 season with a similar injury. Unless the Jaguars add another quarterback this week, they are expected to start Minshew for their Week 2 game against the Houston Texans next Sunday.
