Jaguars quarterback Nick Foles is out indefinitely with a broken collarbone after a hit from Chiefs defensive tackle Chris Jones, but Foles says he has no hard feelings.

Jones took Foles down hard and landed with all his weight on top of him, but Foles said when asked if he thought the hit was excessive that it was part of the game.

“Chris Jones was my teammate in KC and I know he’d never want to do that,” Foles said, via the Kansas City Star. “It was probably just one of those things — it was just unfortunate it happened. I landed on it wrong, and it happens in this sport. We’ll keep moving forward. Chris is a tremendous player and I gave him a hug after the game.”

Foles waited a very long time to become a franchise quarterback somewhere, and it hurts to see him out of action in his first game in Jacksonville. But he’s keeping a positive attitude after taking a tough blow.

  1. I don’t know him personally, but Nick Foles comes across in the media as such a wonderful human being. More professional athletes should take notes on his classy behavior! Sending healing vibes from the city of brotherly love down to JAX!

  2. I’m really sorry for Nick Foles and hope he heals fast, but the football gods took it upon themselves to punish Nick because of the stupid fans carrying on about Carson Wentz being injury prone and the Eagles kept the wrong QB. Lol.

  3. Foles personality will clearly be missed on that team. After watching that defense yesterday they’re in desperate need of some “level-heads”.

    I thought landing on a QB and driving him into the ground with your full body weight was supposed to be a penalty.

    Did you even watch the play? Foles was surrounded by a host of rushers Jones had no where else to land but on top of him. Even Foles said it wasn’t his fault.

    It should have been a penalty. But keep in mind, he just threw beautiful TD pass. What difference would the penalty bring. It would have been declined. While I don’t believe it was Jones intent to land on him. He may get a fine for it. There should be a few fines handed out from this game. Jack most likely will get hit with a big one.

  6. “So he’s reacting just the opposite of how Aaron Rodgers reacted. How refreshing.”

    ===================================

    Not arguing that Rodgers isn’t a diva, but this hit and the Barr hit were very different plays.
