In 2014, Foles suffered a broken collarbone in Week 9 that ended his season. Following the season, Foles was traded to the St. Louis Rams.

In March of 2019, Foles signed a four-year deal with the Jacksonville Jaguars worth $88 million. In Week 1, Foles suffered a broken collarbone that sidelined him for two months. However, Gardner Minshew eventually overtook Foles starting job. He finished the season with just four starts (3TD 2INT).
