Trevor Lawrence feeling good, “frustrating” to not go full speed

The Jaguars continued to limit quarterback Trevor Lawrence‘s workload in Monday’s practice because of hamstring tightness that cropped up last week and the rookie admitted to some frustration about the injury when he spoke to reporters later in the day.

Jaguars head coach Urban Meyer said that Lawrence would be able to play in a game if one was on the schedule, but that the team wants to take precautions to make sure the hamstring issue doesn’t linger. Lawrence said he’s feeling well and sounded as if he’s fighting the urge to fully cut loose on the field.

“It’s feeling good. It’s been about a week. Just trying to work it back to full capacity,” Lawrence said in a press conference. “It’s a little frustrating just not being able to go full speed. I’m feeling good and just trying to not have any more setbacks, so taking it slow. Got some good reps today, so start getting more and more each day this week and just kinda work back into it. It’s doing great. Try to work it back.”

Lawrence said he feels comfortable with the mental aspects of learning the offense, but still sees the need for a lot of work on his timing and relationships with receivers. With little time left in the offseason program, it seems training camp will be the time to really drill down on that aspect of the game.

  1. No matter the prospect, I worry about rookie QB’s who are thrown onto the field immediately.

    16 of the last 20 Super Bowls were won by quarterbacks who did NOT start week one of their rookie season. Look it up!

  2. Give the dude a break! Trevor will be just fine. A little tightness in the hamstring,no big deal. The Jaguars are putting together a nice team there. I think that they are going to surprise everybody this year. 9-8 or even getting to 10 wins is a real possibility. Go Jags!

    _____________________

    The last 20 Super Bowls were won by just 11 different QBs:
    Brady (01, 03, 04, 14, 16, 18, 20)
    Johnson (02)
    Roethlisberger (05, 08)
    P. Manning (06, 15)
    E. Manning (07, 11)
    Brees (09)
    Rodgers (10)
    Flacco (12)
    Wilson (13)
    Foles (17)
    Mahomes (19)

    Only three of those QB were taken in the top 10 of the draft: Peyton, Eli, Ben. Those were three or the four guys you mentioned as starting right away. They all won multiple SB. Three more were taken in the first, and four were taken in the third round or later. Wilson was the only QB not taken in the top 10 that started right away.

    What is to be made of this? 1. Its a team game. 2. If you are drafted top 10, you are likely going to a bad team with a bad QB, and will be expected to start immediately. That doesn’t mean you can’t win a Super Bowl (or six of the past 20) but it means it takes time – and more than one man – to turn a franchise around.
