The Jax Jaguars got some bad news on Sunday when quarterback Nick Foles left the team’s opener against the Kansas City Chiefs with an injury in the first quarter of their 40-26 loss.
Nick Foles suffered a broken left clavicle when Chiefs defensive tackle Chris Jones drove him into the ground after Foles released the ball on a 35-yard touchdown pass. He will have surgery on Monday and there is no timetable for his return to the Jax Jaguars.
Jax Jaguars Odds in Jeopardy
“I knew right when I hit the ground that something was wrong,” Foles said. “I felt it. … All I saw was two red jerseys in my face, I hit the ground and heard a crack. Going into the sidelines and getting checked … I just saw the play for the first time before I came in here. It’s unfortunate, but at the same time I’m trusting the good Lord.”
“We don’t have a time span,” Foles said. “We’re going to take it one day at a time, just get the surgery done. … I’m going to do everything I can to get back as quickly as I can so we’re ready to roll.” The Jax Jaguars are in trouble.
Nick Foles Injury
In 2017, Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers suffered a similar injury and missed eight games.
“Obviously it’s unfortunate,” Jax Jaguars coach Doug Marrone said. “Really liked to see how the game would’ve played out or worked itself out. With Nick, what I’ve been told is he broke his left collarbone. I don’t know the time frame. I’m sure you guys can look it up to see what the average broken collarbone is.”
Nick Foles signed a four-year, $88 million contract with a team-record $50.125 million guaranteed in March. He was previously with the Philadelphia Eagles and led the team to their first Super Bowl win while subbing for an injured Carson Wentz in 2017.
