Details: Jaguars LT Walker Little accidentally stepped on Lawrence’s ankle in the fourth quarter of Jacksonville's loss to the Bengals, which caused the quarterback’s leg to bend back awkwardly.
- Lawrence was unable to get up on his own after the incident and slammed his helmet in frustration.
Post-Game: Lawrence was on crutches and seen with a walking boot in the locker room. He left the stadium in a cart.
- Initial tests confirmed a sprained ankle, though additional testing will determine if there is any ligament damage or fractures.
- Note that a sprain by itself would not be season-ending.
Optimism? According to NFL Network’s Cameron Wolfe, some teammates appeared to be in good spirits after speaking to Lawrence about the injury.
Replacement: CJ Beathard will start for however long Lawrence is out. Beathard completed 9-of-10 passes for 63 yards to close out the game.
