Trevor Lawrence Injury Update: Participating in Jaguars Mini-Camp
If the Jacksonville Jaguars want to have a successful 2021 NFL season, they're going to need rookie quarterback Trevor Lawrence to be as healthy as can be. Last Tuesday, this year's 1st overall pick was held out of Jacksonville's OTAs with a hamstring injury. Fortunately, the Jaguars got a pretty good injury update on their QB.
First Coast News reporter Mia O'Brien reported on Monday that Lawrence was back in attendance at Jaguars minicamp. He was spotted wearing a leg sock while working out on his own off to the side. Regardless, it's encouraging to see that his hamstring injury isn't limiting him too much.

O'Brien also reported that Lawrence and Jaguars head coach Urban Meyer will speak with the media once practice is over. Considering how the rookie signal-caller ended up participating in the 7-on7 drills, completing 8-of-11 passing attempts, things are looking promising in Jacksonville.
As is the case with any No. 1 selection, the Jaguars have lofty expectations for Lawrence ahead of the 2021 NFL season. He's coming off of a college football campaign that saw him record 3,153 passing yards and 24 touchdowns en route to being named first-team All-ACC for the second straight year. Assuming that his hamstring injury isn't that serious, there's no reason to believe why the 21-year-old QB couldn't replicate similar success in the NFL as the years go by.
Not only do the Jaguars have high expectations for Lawrence next season, but so do oddsmakers. He's currently the favorite to win the 2021 Offensive Rookie of the Year Award at +270 odds, according to FanDuel Sportsbook.
