We could be subjected to a different uninteresting Thursday evening recreation if Trevor Lawrence cannot play.
Thursday nights this season have not been nice, and on Monday there was information that Lawrence is unsure to play on this week’s Jacksonville Jaguars-New Orleans Saints recreation on Thursday. Lawrence suffered a knee sprain and whereas it is not thought of severe, the Jaguars are nonetheless unsure if he’ll play this week according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter. The quick turnaround is an enormous consider whether or not Lawrence can go.
The Jaguars’ backup is C.J. Beathard who has 12 profession begins. The San Francisco 49ers additionally went 2-10 in these begins, and he hasn’t made a begin since 2020.
Lawrence has by no means missed a recreation in three NFL seasons. On Sunday he acquired up slowly after taking a success late within the fourth quarter. He was changed for some kneeldowns by Beathard after that, with the Jaguars holding a 37-20 lead.
The Jaguars have received three in a row to take first place within the AFC South at 4-2. The Jaguars do not need to threat the long-term well being of their franchise quarterback, so will probably be a fragile choice on whether or not to start out him towards a great Saints protection.
If Jaguars-Saints was on Sunday, it might give Lawrence just a few extra days to recuperate. As an alternative, it could be a bummer for Jaguars-Saints on Thursday evening to be lacking certainly one of that recreation’s largest younger stars.
