The Facts: Lawrence has a high sprain of his right ankle, HC Doug Pederson said Tuesday. "We'll see where he is here in the next couple of days," Pederson said, adding he wouldn't put a timetable on his starting quarterback.
Diehards Line: If Lawrence is unable to play this Sunday against the Cleveland Browns, backup C.J. Beathard would start. It would be his first start since Week 16 of the 2020 season with San Francisco. Lawrence was hurt in Monday night's 31-28 overtime loss to the Cincinnati Bengals. It's the second time this season Lawrence has left a game because of an injury. He suffered a sprained left knee late in the Jaguars' Week 3 win over Indianapolis, but he didn't miss a start and led Jacksonville to victory against New Orleans four days later on "Thursday Night Football." Lawrence has started all 46 possible games since being drafted No. 1 in 2021, tied for the third-longest active start streak among quarterbacks, according to ESPN Stats & Information research. Buffalo's Josh Allen (83) and the Chargers' Justin Herbert (61) own the two longest streaks, while Lawrence is tied with Kansas City's Patrick Mahomes.
