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.
