The Jacksonville Jaguars made a splash in the offseason by signing Nick Foles to a four-year deal worth $88 million. Unfortunately for the veteran quarterback, he suffered a broken collarbone during the first week of the regular season.

Due to his injury, the Jaguars placed Foles on injured reserve. However, the team has managed to stay afloat in large part because of rookie gunslinger Gardner Minshew II.

Minshew has been very productive for Jacksonville, throwing for 1,697 yards and 10 touchdowns. Even though he's played well enough to keep the team competitive in the AFC South, the Washington State product will eventually have to give the starting job back to Foles.

According to NFL Network insider Ian Rapoport, the Jaguars will have Foles back at practice today.

Foles will work in a limited capacity as he continues to recover from his collarbone injury. He can return to the starting lineup as soon as Week 11.

Until Foles is ready to return, the Jaguars will rely on Minshew.

Jacksonville has a solid matchup this weekend against the New York Jets.

If the Jaguars can remain in the hunt for a playoff spot, the return of Foles could help spark a run toward the end of the season.
