The 2019 NFL season is not off to a good start for the Jacksonville Jaguars and their fans as starting QB Nick Foles, in his first game since joining the team in the offseason, injures his left shoulder against the team’s opening game against the Kansas City Chiefs.
The injury occurred on an otherwise normal play as a Chiefs defender landed on top of Foles with his body weight after a 35-yard touchdown pass to DJ Chark.
Foles has been replaced by rookie QB Garnder Minshew and has been ruled out for the remainder of the game. Hopefully, this is not the last Jags fans have seen of the new quarterback as the Jaguars try to reach the playoffs for the second time in three years and the first without former franchise QB Blake Bortles.
Foles finished the day completing five passes on eight attempts with 75 yards and a TD.
