The injuries were discovered after the loss to the Chargers this past Sunday, but are believed to have been there as early as October 11.

Now, it’s not known if Minshew will be able to play against the Texans November 8. If the former Washington State star can’t go, then Mike Glennon will take over as the team’s quarterback.

This isn’t good at all. This isn’t good at all for the Jaguars, Minshew and fans of the team. We’re talking about one of the most electric passers in the league having to miss a game.

Minshew isn’t just any regular quarterback. He set the league on fire with Minshew Mania.

Now, the Jaguars are off to a terrible start and the face of the franchise might be out with a substantial thumb injury.

If that’s not a terrible development, then I don’t know what is.
