No. 1 overall pick Trevor Lawrence will be ‘full-go’ for Jaguars training camp

Breathe easy, Jacksonville Jaguars fans, and know your new star should be on the field when the club opens training camp July 27. 

Rookie quarterback Trevor Lawrence dealt with a lingering hamstring issue during last month’s mandatory minicamp, but NFL Network’s Judy Battista reports the first overall selection of this year’s draft will be a “full-go” for the start of training camp. 

“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,” Battista explained Tuesday, per Kevin Patra of the league’s website. “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.”  

Battista’s update isn’t too surprising. Head coach Urban Meyer told reporters last month that Lawrence “could play a game if he had to” at that time despite the hamstring problem. Nevertheless, it should ease everyone’s mind the 21-year-old is on track to be 100% by the time he has to take the field when the Jaguars begin their preseason schedule against the Cleveland Browns on Aug. 14.
