Trevor Lawrence, the first-round draft pick for the Jacksonville Jaguars, was ruled out of the first day of the two-day mandatory minicamp on Monday due to hamstring tightness.
Lawrence tweaked his hamstring during last week’s practice. According to Jacksonville head coach Urban Meyer, there is a possibility that it will happen again on Tuesday.
“Our trainers and Schotty (passing game coordinator, Brian Schottenheimer) are being a little cautious because right now when you’re a month out, you yank a hamstring now you’re going to miss the early part of the training camp,” said Meyer. “That’s that one muscle that, you guys have all seen it like I have, you pull a hamstring at this point you’re going to miss all your summer conditioning, so we’re being somewhat conservative on it.
“But he actually could play a game if he had to.”
“It’s been about a week and trying to work it back to full capacity and yeah, it’s a little frustrating just not being able to go full speed, but I’m feeling good,” said Lawrence. “I’m just trying to not have any more setbacks, so taking it slow. Got some good reps today. So start getting more and more each day this week and kind of work back into it.”
The Jaguars have one more day of mandatory minicamp. Training camp will then start in late July.
