We look forward to seeing Trevor Lawrence under center when the Jacksonville Jaguars open their season in September. He’s recovering from offseason shoulder surgery, and has been limited throughout the Jags’ programs so far.
During minicamp, Urban Meyer set Lawrence on a “pitch count.” A minor hamstring issue hampered him further. Naturally, with perhaps the most important young quarterback in franchise history, Jacksonville is taking things slow and not risking anything.
It sounds like the restraints are off now, entering training camp. According to NFL Network’s Judy Battista, Lawrence will be “full go” when training camp opens at the end of the month.
“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,” she 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.”

The Jacksonville Jaguars open up camp on July 27. Trevor Lawrence has to be pretty pumped for the official countdown to his NFL debut.
“It’s a little frustrating just not being able to go full speed,” the young quarterback said last month. “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.”
The Jags open their 2021 season on Sept. 12 at the Houston Texans.
