It looks like the tightening in left-handed hoarding that began to bother Jacksonville Jaguars rookie quarterback Trevor Lawrence for approx. a week ago, is not as mild as first thought.
Preliminary reports said Lawrence would be good to go to the start of mandatory minicamp Monday, however ESPNs Michael DiRocco notes that head coach Urban Meyer told reporters that the 21-year-old was kept out of team drills at the start of the week and is likely to also perform some work next to himself on Tuesday.
“Our teachers and Schotty [passing game coordinator Brian Schottenheimer] are a little cautious, because right now when you’re a month out, you’re raking a hoard now, you’ll miss the early part of training camp, “Meyer explained. It’s the one muscle you’re all seen it like I have, if you pull the hoard at this point, you’ll miss all your summer conditioning, so we’re somewhat conservative with that. ”
He added that Lawrence “could actually play a game if he had to.”
Lawrence, meanwhile, admitted that it is “frustrating” not to be a full participant this week. “I just try not to have more setbacks, so it takes slowly,” he said. “Got some great reps today. So start getting more and more every day this week and work a little back into it.”
