The Jacksonville Jaguars, who lost starting quarterback Nick Foles to a broken collarbone on Sunday, traded for Pittsburgh Steelers backup Josh Dobbs, according to multiple reports Monday.
The Jaguars reportedly will send a 2020 fifth-round pick to the Steelers in exchange for Dobbs, who was a fourth-round pick out of Tennessee in 2017.
The 24-year-old appeared in five games last season for Pittsburgh, completing 6 of 12 passes for 43 yards.
ESPN's Adam Schefter reported that rookie Gardner Minshew II, a sixth-round pick who stepped in Sunday when Foles was injured with 5:23 remaining in the first quarter, will remain the starter for now. Minshew performed well in a 40-26 loss to the Kansas City Chiefs, going 22 of 25 for 275 yards, with two touchdowns and an interception.
Foles was scheduled for surgery Monday morning and will be placed on injured reserve with a designation to return this season, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport.
Jacksonville plays at the Houston Texans on Sunday.
