The Magic is back.
Jaguars head coach Doug Marrone announced Monday that rookie Gardner Minshew would be the team’s starting quarterback for the last month of the season, putting supposed franchise quarterback Nick Foles on the bench just 10 quarters after his return from a broken collarbone.
Minshew replaced Foles to start the second half of Sunday’s 28-11 loss to Tampa Bay.
Foles played a terrible first half, turning the ball over on the team’s first three drives (an interception and two fumbles) and then leading the offense to three consecutive three-and-outs.
Foles completed 7 of 14 passes for 93 yards, and the Jaguars failed to score.
Marrone said after the game that he wanted to give the offense a spark because it was “kind of dead.”
