The Jaguars have traded QB Nick Foles to the Bears in exchange for a compensatory 4th-round pick, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports. Foles notably spent 2012 with Bears HC Matt Nagy in Philadelphia and 2016 with him in Kansas City, so there's some familiarity there. Still, we imagine that this will be an open competition for the starting job this summer between Foles and Mitchell Trubisky. Neither guy is an exciting target in early best-ball drafts. In Jacksonville, meanwhile, QB Gardner Minshew is left atop the depth chart for now.
The Jaguars are set to hire Jay Gruden as their new OC, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Gruden is coming off a failed stint as Washington's HC but did help the Redskins to top-17 finishes in total yards in each of his first 4 seasons, including a 3rd-place finish in 2016. Prior to that, Gruden spent 3 years as Cincinnati's OC. Those teams ranked 20th, 22nd and 10th in total yards. The big question in Jacksonville this offseason is what will happen at QB between Nick Foles, Gardner Minshew and potentially a rookie or free-agent addition.
The Jaguars have fired OC John DeFilippo after just 1 season. The 2019 Jags ranked 20th in total yards, 19th in yards per play and 26th in points. The offense, of course, lost QB Nick Foles to a broken collarbone in Week 1 and rolled with 6th-round rookie QB Gardner Minshew most of the year. We'll see who HC Doug Marrone tabs as his new OC.
Jaguars QB Gardner Minshew (right shoulder) is active for today’s game against the Colts. The shoulder issue adds more downside to a guy who was an unexciting fantasy option to begin with.
Jaguars QB Gardner Minshew (right shoulder) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Colts after a limited week of practice. We've heard nothing to suggest that he'll miss this one, but the injury is just another reason to avoid Minshew in fantasy lineups.
Jaguars HC Doug Marrone announced Monday that he's going back to QB Gardner Minshew. It's the rational decision after QB Nick Foles struggled in 10 quarters of action over the past 3 weeks, averaging just 6.1 yards per attempt with 2 TDs and 2 INTs. Minshew has been good in spurts over his 8 starts this season, averaging 251 yards and 1.4 TDs through the air, plus 29 yards on the ground. Remaining matchups against the Raiders and Falcons in Weeks 15 and 16 will have Minshew on the spot-start radar.
Jaguars QB Nick Foles was benched at halftime of Sunday's game against the Bucs. He completed just 7 of 14 passes for 93 yards, 0 TDs and 1 INT in the game's first 30 minutes. Foles also lost 2 fumbles. QB Gardner Minshew will finish out the game for the Jags. We'll see who they go with for Week 14 and beyond.
Jaguars HC Doug Marrone announced Tuesday that QB Nick Foles will be the starter coming out of the Week 10 bye. Rookie QB Gardner Minshew exceeded all expectations filling in for Foles, completing 61.2% of his passes, averaging 7.4 yards per attempt and tossing 13 TDs vs. 4 INTs. Money is winning out here, though, after Jacksonville gave Foles $50 million guaranteed this offseason. He's worth adding in all 2-QB leagues and deeper 1-QB leagues. The Jags have the easiest remaining QB schedule, including games against the Bucs (Week 13), Raiders (Week 15) and Falcons (Week 16).
Jaguars QB Gardner Minshew (groin) isn’t listed on the final Week 6 injury report. He was limited on Thursday but put in a full workout on Friday. Minshew is a viable QB1 spot starter this week at home for the Saints.
Jaguars QB Gardner Minshew was added to Thursday's injury report and limited in practice with what the Associated Press' Mark Long calls "minor groin soreness." It doesn't sound like the rookie is in danger of missing this weekend's game against the Saints, but we'll get another update on his status tomorrow.
The forecast for today's Jaguars-Broncos game calls for sustained winds around 20 mph with gusts up to 35 mph. That's more than enough to impact the passing and kicking games. No one expected this to be a fantasy bonanza anyways. You can stick with RBs Leonard Fournette, Phillip Lindsay and Royce Freeman, but we'd try to avoid the QBs, WRs and Ks in this game.
The Jaguars have acquired QB Josh Dobbs from the Steelers in exchange for a 5th-round pick. We imagine that Dobbs is coming to back up QB Gardner Minshew, who played well in relief of Nick Foles yesterday, but we'll see what we hear from the team. Dobbs was a 4th-rounder back in 2017 and struggled to a 54.5% completion rate with 0 TDs and 2 INTs this preseason. Meanwhile, Foles will hit IR-designated-to-return after today's surgery to repair his broken collarbone, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. The earliest Foles can return is Week 10.
Jaguars QB Nick Foles will undergo surgery on his broken left clavicle on Monday. “We don’t have a time span [for return]," Foles said. “We’re going to take it one day at a time ... I’m going to do everything I can to get back as quickly as I can to where I’m ready to roll.” Pro Football Talk speculates that Foles could be placed on IR-designated-to-return. That'd knock him out until at least Week 10. Rookie QB Gardner Minshew is set to take over as Jacksonville's starter. He played well against the Chiefs on Sunday but is still a downgrade for this entire Jags offense.
Jaguars QB Nick Foles has been diagnosed with a broken left clavicle, according to The Athletic's Phillip Heilman. That figures to knock Foles out until at least October. We should get a more concrete timeline over the next couple of days, but it'll be Gardner Minshew under center in Jacksonville for the foreseeable future. The 6th-round rookie played surprisingly well in relief of Foles vs. the Chiefs, completing 22 of 25 passes for 275 yards, 2 scores and 1 INT.
Jaguars QB Nick Foles appeared to injure his left arm after throwing a TD to WR D.J. Chark in the 1st quarter of Sunday's game against the Chiefs. He headed back to the locker room with trainers. We'll update Foles' status when we learn more. Gardner Minshew is Jacksonville's backup QB.
Update: Foles is getting an x-ray on his left clavicle.
Update: Foles has been ruled out with what the Jags are calling a left shoulder injury.
