Nick Foles suffered a broken left clavicle in week one. He's missed every game since. Backup QB Gardner Minshew has shined in Foles' absence.

The former Washington State signal caller has led Jacksonville to a 4-4 record. He's captured the hearts of Jaguars' fans along the way.

Minshew's thrown for 1,976 yards and 13 touchdowns in eight games this season. He's tossed just two interceptions.

With the NFL trade deadline approaching, questions are starting to arise regarding the team's plan at quarterback. Considering Minshew's emergence, does the team feel inclined to move Foles before the deadline?

According to an ESPN insider, Jacksonville has no such plans.

Seems like the Jaguars are content with having both quarterbacks on the roster. After all, Foles has a super bowl win under his belt. And Minshew is a bright, young star in the league.

For now, Jacksonville has no issue keeping both for the time being. This will allow the team to sort through a proper quarterback battle rather than rushing to make a decision.

Minshew has certainly proved he's capable of leading a team to victory. He threw for 279 yards and three touchdowns in a 29-15 victory over the Jets on Sunday.

It'll be interesting to see how Jacksonville sorts this out over the coming weeks.
