The Jaguars listed two starting quarterback on their unofficial preseason depth chart. The rookie got the first start of the preseason.

Trevor Lawrence, the No. 1 overall pick in the draft, entered the game after the Browns finished the opening drive with a field goal. On the first snap, the pocket collapsed on Lawrence. He fumbled the ball but recovered it.

Lawrence shrugged off the blunder, delivering a third-down completion to extend the drive. He ultimately led the offense to a pair of first downs before things sputtered at the Jacksonville 45.

For his first NFL drive, Lawrence completed three of five passes for 24 yards.

Coach Urban Meyer recently has said that the competition between Lawrence and Gardner Minshew is open. Minshew, who has said he hasn’t moved his bowels in weeks because No. 2 isn’t an option, will be the No. 2 guy tonight.

  1. kareems hunts first NFL regular season carry was a fumble inside the 20…
    from. that point on he was one of the best RBs when wearing a chiefs uniform.
    shrug it off…you know you’re better than that.

  2. Wow he was sacked and fumbled but recover it and that’s a bad sign????
    Give me a break … if that was Newton or Lamar Jackson you would have wrote what a great play recovering his fumble after been sacked.

  3. Um, no.
    I was not impressive at all. Reminds me of Jim Plunket when he was with New England. If the Jags don’t fix that O-line…

  4. He had 7 seconds to get that throw off for the 1st down. That ain’t happening if Clowney and Garrett are the Ends rushing. That O-Line is gonna get him killed.

  5. Don’t think this guy has an “it” factor…bottom line the Cleveland scrubs beat him up
