Jacksonville Jaguars’ star quarterback, Trevor Lawrence, remains in a questionable status for the upcoming game, marking the second consecutive week his participation hangs in the balance.
In the previous week, Lawrence’s readiness was compromised due to a knee issue. He missed a crucial practice and was restricted in two others. Despite these challenges, Lawrence demonstrated remarkable determination as he suited up to lead the Jaguars against the New Orleans Saints in a high-stakes Thursday Night Football clash, ultimately securing victory.
Now, Lawrence finds himself with a bit more time for recovery as the Jaguars are coming off a mini-bye, yet the quarterback’s knee remains a point of concern. Throughout this week’s preparation, he continued to be limited in practice, raising doubts about his full recovery.
Lawrence himself acknowledged his ongoing knee troubles and confirmed his intent to don a brace for additional support in the imminent game against the Pittsburgh Steelers. This proactive approach underscores his commitment to the team despite his physical setbacks.
The Jaguars’ injury report also includes some notable absentees for the game. Wide receiver Zay Jones, nursing a knee injury, and cornerback Gregory Junior, who is dealing with a hamstring problem, have been ruled out.
The team faces uncertainty, with offensive lineman Brandon Scherff (ankle), offensive lineman Walker Little (knee), cornerback Tyson Campbell (hamstring), and safety Andre Cisco (hamstring) all listed as questionable. These uncertainties add to the complexity of Jacksonville’s preparation as they approach a crucial matchup against the Steelers, with Lawrence’s status at the forefront of everyone’s minds.
