The Jacksonville Jaguars sent shockwaves in the NFL when they beat the Buffalo Bills in Week 9. What makes the win more impressive is the fact that they were without two key contributors, running back James Robinson and left tackle Cam Robinson.
To exacerbate matters, quarterback Trevor Lawrence hurt his ankle in the second quarter and had to exit the game. Fortunately, the former Clemson Tiger avoid a major injury scare and return to the field not long after without any major lingering signs.
On Monday, head coach Urban Meyer met with the local media and provided a few injury updates. Regarding Lawrence, he says he should be a full go for the Jaguars’ Week 10 matchup against the Colts.
"Trevor is good. I just saw him and he should be go this week… knowing Trevor, he will be ready to go on Wednesday."
Meyer also said that his confidence in Lawrence hasn’t wavered even though he’s had a couple of rough weeks. He pointed out that he played well against the Seahawks and later faced off against a top defense in the Bills. He added Lawrence has “grown up as a passer and has become very productive”.
Meyer also expects James Robinson to play against the Colts. The former Illinois State Redbird was listed as questionable ahead of the game and there was a legitimate chance he would suit up. However, the team ultimately opted to make him inactive.
Robinson will give the Jaguars’ rushing attack a boost. Even though they committed to running the ball, they managed just 79 yards on 27 carries. Looking back, they did the right thing by letting him heal instead of exposing him to further injury. Here are other things of note Meyer said in his sitdown with the media Monday.
