Can QB Gardner Minshew Add Some Stability for the Jaguars?

It’s Week 2 for the Jacksonville Jaguars and their season already has a bleak outlook. During the team’s loss to the Kansas City Chiefs last week, starting quarterback went down in just the first quarter with what was later revealed as a broken left clavicle (collarbone).

Foles is not exactly lost for the entire season, but he will be out of action until November at the earliest. In Foles’ absence, rookie QB Gardner Minshew, the NFL’s newest folk hero, looks to fill the void for now. In his first NFL action, Minshew completed 22 of his 25 passes for 275, two touchdowns and one interception. Not bad for an impromptu appearance.

Now, Minshew’s more-than-decent game could spark some inspiration among Jaguars players and fans, but thinking that he could pull a Dak Prescott after Dallas Cowboys QB Tony Romo was injured would surely be a stretch right?

The Jaguars next game is against the Houston Texans and they still have to deal with the Tennessee Titans after their impressive outing against the Cleveland Browns in Week 1. Not to mention, despite the early retirement of their franchise QB, the Indianapolis Colts have more talent on their roster and won’t just lay down for anyone.

As previously mentioned, Foles could return as early as November 3 in the Jaguars’ Week 10 matchup against the Texans, but surely the Jaguars’ brass will not want another Tony Romo situation on their hands. Depending on how their season has gone up until that point, Foles could be shut down, effectively ending his first season as a Jaguar.

To add some depth to their QB position, the Jaguars recently traded for Pittsburgh Steelers’ backup QB Josh Dobbs in exchange for a 2020 fifth-round pick. Dobbs has just 12 pass attempts in his NFL career (NFL.com).
