Nick Foles

Carson Wentz reached out to Nick Foles after Foles got hurt in Week 1

Carson Wentz reached out to Nick Foles after Foles got hurt in Week 1

They’re no longer teammates, but Carson Wentz and Nick Foles are still good friends and it was tough for Wentz to see his friend get knocked out of his first game with the Jaguars. 

Foles broke his left collarbone in Week 1 and was placed on Injured Reserve. He’ll be out for at least eight weeks, but could still possibly return this season. 

On Wednesday, Wentz was asked if he had reached out to Foles. 

I did reach out to Nick and I love Nick to death and the competitor that he is. That’s really a bummer and unfortunate. That’s what we sign up for and when we play this game, there’s so many things we can’t control. I know he believes that, he believes God’s using it for a reason. To be able to go through it from a faith-filled standpoint for him, I know it’s tough, but I know he’ll handle it well.

Wentz and Foles have always shared their Christian faith, so it’s not surprising that’s something Wentz brought up Wednesday. Wentz leaned on his faith to get through injuries in each of the last two seasons. 

After the Eagles let him become a free agent instead of placing a franchise tag on him, Foles this offseason signed a four-year, $88 million deal to join the Jaguars. 

Foles was 5 for 8 for 75 yards and a touchdown before getting knocked out of the game. He actually got hurt on his 35-yard touchdown pass in the first quarter Sunday.

Nick Foles exits Jaguars' NFL Week 1 game with injury

Updated: 4:52 p.m.

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.

The Jaguars gave the official word on Foles' injury after the game, and it's a serious one.

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.
