The NFL’s first pick in this year’s draft says he’s ready to go, as Clemson quarterback and now Jacksonville Jaguars quarterback Trevor Lawrence says he’s set to enter camp this month without any injuries.
Lawrence had shoulder surgery before the NFL Draft and was held back during offseason work by a nagging hamstring issue, but both those injuries are in the past and Lawrence is ready to compete for the starting QB spot.
“Remember they were holding him back a little bit in OTAs and minicamp a little bit because he was recovering from the offseason shoulder surgery,” NFL Network’s Judy Battista said.
“It was his non-throwing shoulder, so that’s the good news, but they were still restricting him.
“No restrictions anymore when he gets to training camp. It is going to be full-go.”
It still isn’t certain that Lawrence will be the opening day starter for the Jaguars on September 12th, but if Lawrence is healthy, new coach Urban Meyer will likely give him every chance to earn the spot once camp opens on July 27th.
This month, Lawrence was seen working out with fellow Jaguars teammates, showing again that he’s close to 100 percent.
