Head coach Urban Meyer voiced that he doesn’t believe that the ailment will force Lawrence to miss any playing time. Meanwhile, the Clemson voiced that he feels well and will be ready to go if given the green light to play against the Indianapolis Colts on Sunday.

“It feels pretty good — better than I thought it would. I’m happy with where I’m at,” Lawrence said via Pro Football Talk. “Obviously, trying to be smart and just make sure I’m ready to go. So I’ll ease my way into it, but just trying to get as many reps as I can just to make sure I’m ready. But I’m feeling good and we’re where we want to be.”

The Jaguars will trek forward cautiously, but the team appears more than confident that rookie quarterback can play through it. Lawrence has experienced his fair share of ups and downs in his first NFL season, as he has passed for 1,821 yards on a 59.5 percent completion rate with eight touchdowns to nine interceptions.
