Both the Kansas City Chiefs and Jacksonville Jaguars suffered significant losses when the teams met in Jacksonville on Sunday.
After two catches for 16 yards and one rush for five, Kansas City wide receiver Tyreek Hill went down with a sternal clavicular (shoulder) joint injury.
Hill was hospitalized and was to see an ortho-trauma physician. The team is expected to provide an update on his condition Monday or Tuesday.
Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes sustained a sprained ankle, but it didn’t stop him from having a big day, completing 25 of 333 passes for 378 yards and three touchdowns.
The Jags received a more severe blow to their quarterback, as Nick Foles’ news was much worse.
Foles suffered a left shoulder injury in the first quarter that was later diagnosed as a broken left clavicle.
Foles, who had completed five of eight passes for 75 yards and a touchdown before the injury, is expected to miss six to eight weeks.
He was relieved by rookie Gardner Minshew, who rose to the occasion by connecting on 22 of 25 passes for 275 yards and a touchdown, along with one interception.
The Jaguars are expected to shop for a veteran quarterback to back up Minshew in Week 2.
