JACKSONVILLE, Fla. - Update 4:45 p.m.: Coach Doug Marrone said Nick Foles suffered a broken collarbone during the Jags - Chiefs game and is expected to be off the field for a couple of months.
Foles - just saw the play for the first time before I came in here. Everything happened so fast, just unfortunate thing to happen. Landed on it wrong and we'll keep moving forward. pic.twitter.com/NcBwseQPcj— Stuart Webber (@StuartASJax) September 8, 2019
Gardner Minshew - not happy with circumstances of getting on field, breaks my heart to see why happened to Nick. Was awful seeing him go down like that. But he'll be with me and we'll get this team where it needs to go. @ActionNewsJax @ActionSportsJax @ESPN690Jax pic.twitter.com/5TRuSsxQGZ— Stuart Webber (@StuartASJax) September 8, 2019
