From the upgrade/downgrade report (Mon Sep 9): Foles is on injured reserve with a broken collarbone, but could return in the second half of the season

General News (Mon Sep 9): suffered a broken left clavicle during the Week 1 game. Foles was placed on injured reserve but could return in the second half of the season.

Week 2: at Houston Texans

All QB vs HOU

FBG says: Good matchup. The Jaguars season got off to a terrible start as their new star quarterback Nick Foles suffered a broken collarbone after throwing his first touchdown pass with his new team. With Foles sidelined until at least Week 11, sixth-round rookie Gardner Minshew will take over under center for the Jaguars. He has very limited NFL experience, but Minshew did look serviceable last week as he completed 22-or-25 attempts for 275 yards, two touchdowns, and one interception. Minshew showed great accuracy both downfield and on short throws as he spread the ball around well. Minshew relied heavily on short passes, but he also completed a 64-yard deep ball to D.J. Chark as his primary highlight. The Jaguars signed Josh Dobbs to compete at the quarterback position, but he will slot in as the backup to Minshew for this week. At wide receiver, it was Chris Conley who was the favorite target of Minshew based on the connection they established in training camp. Conley finished with 97 rushing yards, six receptions, and one touchdown. D.J. Chark led the team in receiving though as he hauled in the big 64-yard touchdown bomb on his way to 146 receiving yards. Dede Westbrook would have had an underwhelming start to his season if not for a late-game touchdown as he did not live up to expectations as the Jaguars WR1. Leonard Fournette also amassed a respectable four receptions for 28 yards--solid usage for him out of the backfield. The Texans passing defense gave up 370 passing yards and two touchdowns while picking off Drew Brees once in last week's opener. The defensive line failed to apply consistent pressure as both the interior and edges of this line were in poor form--including J.J. Watt, who looked sluggish. Whitney Mercilus was the only sharp player on this line, as he made a few nice plays and was consistently winning his matchup while also making a great play in the end zone to pick off Drew Brees. New safety Tashaun Gipson had a very tough time over the top as he fell victim to big play after big play by the Saints wide receivers. Cornerback Johnathan Joseph was their best defensive back, while slot man Aaron Colvin was the worst. Colvin performed so poorly that he was actually released on Tuesday. None of the three remaining cornerbacks on the roster can be trusted, so until the Texans can sign another cornerback, the slot will be a position to exploit when facing the Texans--news that bodes well for Dede Westbrook to put up solid numbers this week.

Recent Game Summaries

2019 Week 1 vs KC (5 / 8 / 75 / 1 / 0 pass, 0 / 0 / 0 rush)

Nick Foles only played two possessions (11 snaps) before suffering a fractured left clavicle when Chiefs defensive tackle landed on him hard. Before exiting the game, Foles was 5/8 passing for 75 yards and a touchdown. His first few throws were forgettable checkdowns, but his second drive featured a nice play when he shrugged off a Chris Jones sack and converted a 3rd and 18 with an accurate pass over the middle to Chris Conley. He capped the drive off with a beautiful 35-yard touchdown in the corner of the end zone to Chark, but that would be the same play that would end up sidelining him for the foreseeable future.

Jaguars | Nick Foles headed for IR (Mon Sep 9, 12:05 PM) - Jacksonville Jaguars QB Nick Foles (shoulder) underwent surgery on his broken clavicle Monday, Sept. 9, and will be placed on the Reserve/Injured list with a designation to return later in the day, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport.

Our View: Just bad news for the Jaguars as they lost Foles early in their opener against the Chiefs. They'll turn to rookie Gardner Mishew as their starter while Foles is out for half the season. Minshew did not look uncomfortable when he was thrust into the game against the Chiefs on Sunday. He's smart and capable of working passes at all three levels.

Jaguars | Broken clavicle for Nick Foles (Sun Sep 8, 03:57 PM) - Updating a previous report, Jacksonville Jaguars QB Nick Foles (clavicle) suffered a broken left clavicle during the Week 1 game.

Our View: It's his non-throwing shoulder but Foles is going to miss some time. Rookie Gardner Minshew came in and played well for the Jaguars but they didn't have enough firepower to beat the Chiefs. We'll see Foles miss perhaps as much as half the regular season as the usual timetable for this sort of injury is 6-8 weeks. Expect Jacksonville to try and find a veteran backup but Minshew will start the next game.

Jaguars | Nick Foles injures shoulder (Sun Sep 8, 01:35 PM) - Jacksonville Jaguars QB Nick Foles (shoulder) suffered a shoulder injury during the Week 1 game and has been ruled out.

Our View: This is the left (non-throwing) shoulder for Foles. He has been replaced by 2019 sixth-round pick Gardner Minshew.
