Nick Foles’ first game since leaving the Eagles did not go as he would have wanted.

The new Jaguars quarterback went down with a left shoulder injury Sunday and was ruled out of his team’s opening game against the Chiefs.

The Super Bowl LII MVP tossed a beautiful touchdown pass to DJ Chark in the first quarter, but he was hit hard on the play.

It's a serious injury for Foles.

He's set to have surgery Monday and there's no timetable for his return, according to ESPN's Michael DiRocco.

Foles finished 5 for 8 with 75 passing yards and that touchdown in his Jaguars debut. Gardner Minshew, the team’s sixth-round draft pick this season, replaced Foles and went 22 for 25 with 275 yards passing, two touchdowns and an interception in Jacksonville's 40-26 loss.

Foles is in the first of a four-year deal with the Jaguars after the Eagles allowed him to become a free agent this offseason. The Eagles signed Carson Wentz to a four-year extension in June.
