While it’s never great news that a highly-touted quarterback prospect needs shoulder surgery, there’s little here that will dissuade the Jacksonville Jaguars. The issue is with Lawrence’s non-throwing shoulder, and it certainly didn’t seem to cause him any trouble at his Pro Day workout.
While Lawrence should be fine for training camp, the 5-to-6 month window doesn’t leave much time for setbacks. Any longer than six months and Lawrence’s timetable would get uncomfortably close to the start of regular season action.
