Trevor Lawrence, who is throwing for teams on Friday, February 12th, is set to go under surgery the next day for a torn labrum in his shoulder. That surgery should keep him from throwing for 6-8 weeks and will require a recovery time of 4-5 months. (Field Yates on Twitter)
Assuming everything goes smoothly, there's no reason to expect that Lawrence won't be ready to start training camps. He weighed in at his Pro Day at just 213 pounds, a sign that he probably hasn't been able to lift weights much since suffering the injury. All signs point to Lawrence being this year's first pick and the future face of the Jacksonville Jaguars. With the NFL Draft still over two months away, the Jaguars will be watching his progress from surgery under a microscope. Luckily, the injury is in his non-throwing arm, but the team will still want to ensure the 21-year-old stud has a smooth recovery process.
