The Jacksonville Jaguars have reportedly made a trade for a quarterback in the wake of Nick Foles’ injury during Week 1’s loss to Kansas City.
Foles, the Jaguars’ big offseason acquisition, suffered a fractured clavicle in his team’s opening week loss on Sunday. He’s reportedly undergoing surgery today.
Jacksonville is reportedly impressed with rookie Gardner Minshew, though the team has added another young quarterback into the mix.
The Jaguars and the Steelers have reportedly agreed to a trade for Joshua Dobbs.

Dobbs will get a chance to be the backup in Jacksonville and, if Minshew plays poorly, perhaps he’ll get a chance to start.
Gardner Minshew still is Jaguars’ starting QB. But now, with Nick Foles out, his backup will be former Steelers’ QB Josh Dobbs.

Minshew, a sixth round pick out of Washington State, completed 22 of 25 passes for 275 yards and two touchdowns with one interception in the loss to the Chiefs.
Dobbs, the former Tennessee star, was a fourth round pick in the 2017 NFL Draft. He’s 6 of 12 for 43 yards and one interception in the NFL.
Jacksonville is set to play at Houston this weekend.
