Jacksonville, FL – In a major blow to the Jacksonville Jaguars, their star quarterback Trevor Lawrence will sit out the upcoming game against the Tennessee Titans due to a shoulder injury. This marks the first game Lawrence will miss in his promising rookie season.
While Lawrence has battled through previous injuries this season, this time the injury was deemed too severe to play through. The young quarterback has displayed remarkable performance, completing 65.5 percent of his throws for an impressive 3,736 yards, 19 touchdowns, and 12 interceptions in the 15 games he has played. Additionally, he has rushed for 329 yards and four touchdowns, showcasing his versatility on the field.
Since being drafted as the No. 1 overall pick in the 2021 draft, Lawrence had started all 49 games for the Jaguars, making his absence even more significant for the team.
Stepping up to replace Lawrence as the starting quarterback will be C.J. Beathard, who will be making his first start since 2020. Beathard showcased his skills in last week’s loss to Tampa Bay, completing 11-of-15 passes for 94 yards and a touchdown. Throughout the season, he has made appearances in six games, completing 23-of-29 throws for 171 yards.
Nevertheless, Beathard faces a challenging task ahead. Having not made a start in three years, his record stands at 2-10 in 12 career starts. Despite this, the game holds significant importance for him as the Jaguars are currently tied with two other teams for the top spot in the AFC South, boasting an 8-7 record.
The Jaguars have experienced a challenging stretch lately, suffering four consecutive losses since Week 13 when they held an 8-3 record. With their playoff hopes now hanging in the balance, this upcoming game against the Titans is a must-win situation.
As fans eagerly await the outcome, the Jaguars’ coaching staff and players rally behind Beathard, hoping that his first start in over a year will spearhead a victory that keeps their playoff aspirations alive.
