Rapoport adds Foles had a plate and screws inserted to fix his clavicle and ensure long-term health. A source told Rapoport it was a clean, straight-forward break.
If Foles heals properly, he’ll return to practice in Week 9 before suiting up to start in Week 11 following Jacksonville’s Week 10 bye.
Rapoport also says the Jaguars are comfortable with sixth-round QB Gardner Minshew while Foles is out and won’t have to change the offense much.
Foles, 30, is a former third-round pick of the Eagles back in 2012. Philadelphia traded Foles to the Rams back in 2015 in a deal for QB Sam Bradford and he later signed an extension with the team.
Foles lasted just over a year with the Rams before he was released and later signed to a two-year, $11 million contract with the Eagles. He was set to make a base salary of $4 million in 2018 when he agreed to a restructured contract this offseason and later bought his free agency by paying back $2 million to the Eagles.
From there, Foles agreed to a four-year, $88 million contract with the Jaguars that included $50.125 million guaranteed.
In 2018, Foles appeared in four games and thrown for 1,192 yards while completing 69.8 percent of his passes to go along with five touchdowns and three interceptions.
