“I feel a lot better today than I would’ve thought. So, I like how im progressing,” said Lawrence on Tuesday. “I’m going to do whatever I can to be out there.”
Players are always eager to return to the field, but offensive coordinator Press Taylor told the media Lawrence will play if the training staff decides he’s not at risk of reinjury. No official decision will be made until Thursday.

Beathard’s Comments Spark Optimism For Jaguars Bettors
After Lawrence practiced in limited fashion on Tuesday, backup quarterback C.J. Beathard told the media it’s “very likely” that Lawrence will play against the Saints. Beathard took most of the first-team reps in practice and would start if Lawrence can’t play.
Beathard applauded Lawrence’s toughness and preparation to play on Thursday. Until Lawrence’s status is confirmed, the best bet at Florida online sportsbooks is the under (-115) on the 40.0-point total.
New Orleans averages 18.2 points per game this season and holds opponents to 16.0 points per game. The under has great value at -115 odds, especially if Beathard starts at quarterback for the Jaguars.
