Former Clemson quarterback Trevor Lawrence will require four to five months of recovery time after undergoing left shoulder surgery.
Lawrence is presumed to be the number one overall pick in the 2021 NFL Draft, and he stated that he thinks he’ll be able to throw in six to eight weeks.
“I think I can throw in 6-8 weeks,” Lawrence said. “And then looking at a 4-5 month full clearance.”
The 21-year-old threw passes on Friday for NFL scouts before Clemson’s pro day, which will allow him to undergo surgery as soon as possible.
The Jacksonville Jaguars have the number one pick in the draft, and newly hired head coach Urban Meyer would certainly like to build around Lawrence for the team’s future.
Here’s a few clips from his throwing session:
- Zion Williamson out indefinitely with broken finger
- Wilson Ramos placed on 10-day IL
- Reds place Joey Votto on 10-day IL
