The Nick Foles era in Jacksonville started well on Sunday afternoon, but ended in disaster for the former Philadelphia Eagles quarterback.

Foles found former LSU star wide receiver D.J. Chark with a beautiful pass for a touchdown in the first quarter. The pass cut Kansas city's lead to 10-7, but it cost the team dearly.

Foles was hit hard on the play and left the game.

The Jaguars Director of Public Relations initially revealed Foles had been ruled out for the rest of the game with a shoulder injury.

After the game, Jags beat writer Phillip Heilman revealed the severity of the injury. Foles is likely to miss extended time after he suffered a broken clavicle in his non-throwing shoulder.

Rookie quarterback Gardner Minshew played well in relief of Foles on Sunday afternoon.

The former Washington State star completed 22-of-25 passes for 275 yards and two touchdowns with one interception.

It's a tough blow for Foles, who finally received the chance to be a starting quarterback in the NFL again. He was expected to lead the Jaguars back to the playoffs in the AFC, but it looks like that won't happen.

Jacksonville fans will have to throw their support behind Minshew moving forward.
