Lawrence was a revelation during his time with Clemson, where he became the standout quarterback in this year’s draft class. The number one overall draft pick joined the NFL with a nagging injury, but it appears that he is making strides in recovery.

“I’m trusting that. That’s—the medical staff, the coaches. Everyone is on the same page. We’ve got a good plan, we know what we’re doing and I’m just trusting that. It won’t be long before I’m full-go, so I’m ready… I want to get out there and just throw and go. But I think it’s better for me in the long run, just to take it slow and get acclimated – just because I’m still recovering from my left shoulder.” 

Jacksonville Jaguars not risking Trevor Lawrence

Lawrence also added that he is still feeling great and looking forward to making a full recovery. However, he didn’t want to get ahead of himself and do something rash that could cost him playing time. Lawrence then explained that he is gaining his mobility back. But right now, his focus is on making a full recovery, despite the solid progress that they’ve been making. The objective is to be healthy by opening day.

“It’s feeling great, no complaints here. I’m making great progress. But I’ve still got to just be smart and take it easy… It’s doing great, I’ve got full range of motion, pretty much. I need to work on it a little bit, but I’m feeling great. We’re taking steps in the right direction for sure, just trying to make sure I’m good come Game One.”
