Jaguars fear for Lawrence: Star quarterback causes shock in overtime crime

Jaguars worry about Lawrence
Star quarterback causes shock in overtime crime

The Jacksonville Jaguars lose an overtime thriller and – worse – their quarterback Trevor Lawrence. The playmaker may be seriously injured against the Cincinnati Bengals. The other person, on the other hand, experiences an unusual feeling of happiness.

Quarterback Trevor Lawrence appears to have seriously injured his foot in the Jacksonville Jaguars’ loss to the Cincinnati Bengals. At 31:34 after overtime, their own left tackle Walker Little stepped on the playmaker’s ankle during a play, causing his leg to become unnaturally dislocated.

Lawrence tried to get up, then fell to his knees and slammed his helmet on the ground in frustration. He was only able to leave the field with support from supervisors. While the Bengals have hopes of making the playoffs again after three defeats with their sixth win in the twelfth game of the season, the Jaguars failed to break away from their pursuers at the top of the AFC South.

Lawrence had a strong evening until his injury and had two touchdown passes and one run touchdown. Only 7 of his 29 throws missed a teammate. As ESPN NFL expert Adam Schefter reported, Lawrence is said to have at least sprained his ankle. Further tests should provide a final result on the severity of the injury. Jaguars coach Doug Peterson did not provide any information about Lawrence’s condition after the game.

For the regular playmaker, CJ Beathard took over responsibility for the Jaguars’ attack and, shortly before the end of regular time, led his team into field goal range and thus into overtime.

The man of the evening was Jake Browning, who replaced the injured quarterback Joe Burrow as starter for the second time at the Cincinnati Bengals and won an NFL game for the first time in his career. “Feels good, I definitely had to earn it, even going into overtime. It’s been a long time since I won a game,” he said on ESPN. “Just having a week more experience made a big difference.”
