Nick Foles is not with the Jaguars during OTAs, with the team citing “personal reasons” for his absence.
The quarterback, who is in his first season with Jacksonville, doesn’t have a timetable for his return, though NFL Media indicated he could be back by the end of this week.
Coach Doug Marrone said only that “our thoughts and prayers are with Nick and his family.”

Foles, 30, signed a four-year, $88 million contract with the team in the offseason after spending the past two seasons with the Eagles as Carson Wentz’s backup. Both seasons, Wentz went down with an injury that forced him to miss the latter part of the year, as well as the playoffs.
Foles’ performance in 2017 made him a hero, as he helped the Eagles bring home their first Super Bowl title after defeating the Patriots.
Originally drafted by the Eagles in 2012, he spent three seasons in Philadelphia before spending one year with the Rams and one with the Chiefs before returning to Philadelphia.
He is expected to be the Jaguars’ starter this season.
