The 2021 NFL season is just over three months away from kicking off, but you can't blame Jacksonville Jaguars fans for wanting time to pass by quickly. After all, they're clamoring to see this year's No. 1 overall pick Trevor Lawrence in game action. However, the former Clemson Tigers quarterback gave fans a worry on Tuesday.
Lawrence's time at Tuesday's minicamp was limited due to a hamstring injury. While he took part in the 7-on-7 drills, his hamstring tightness kept him out of the two-minute and red zone drills.

However, there's both good news and bad news when it comes to Lawrence's minicamp on Tuesday. The good news is that the Jaguars have a day off on Wednesday, which gives his hamstring time to heal. Head coach Urban Meyer also said that the team expects the 2021 Offensive Rookie of the Year favorite to practice on Thursday, so there's not too much cause for concern.
Nevertheless, the bad news is that Lawrence didn't perform well during Tuesday's minicamp. It could've been because of his hamstring, but NBC Sports reporter Josh Alper reported that the rookie threw two pick-sixes during the 7-on-7 drills. Alper added that the team hopes to eliminate both the hamstring and turnover issues before the regular season begins.
If anyone has the talent to make people forget about a poor minicamp showing, it's Lawrence. The No. 1 overall draft selection spent three seasons at Clemson, recording 10,098 passing yards and 90 touchdowns during that span. He was a part of multiple All-ACC teams while racking up a plethora of achievements, including a 2018 National Championship.
With the Jaguars having only +330 odds on FanDuel Sportsbook to make the playoffs, Lawrence has his work cut out for him next season. Still, with his talents and the other new additions in Jacksonville, the Jaguars should field a team better than the one that went 1-15 last season.
