Jacksonville Jaguars QB Trevor Lawrence, RB Travis Etienne will not play in Hall of Fame Game

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. — Jaguars quarterback Trevor Lawrence will not participate in Thursday’s Hall of Fame game against the Las Vegas Raiders, coach Doug Pederson said Tuesday morning.

Running back Travis Etienne, who missed his rookie season with a Lisfranc injury, won’t play either, Pederson said. Etienne does not train on Tuesday due to illness, but has otherwise participated fully in the training camp. Pederson said he wanted to be careful with Etienne, the 25th overall pick in the 2021 draft.

“Trevor had a lot of great looks here in practice,” Pederson said. “[We] feel that he is well placed.”

Backup quarterback CJ Beathard has been limited to camp in his recovery from a groin injury he suffered in the OTAs and will also not play against the Raiders. Jake Luton will start.

“We’re still evaluating our roster,” Pederson said. “We have a lot of young guys and a lot of battles that we want to start seeing in game situations.”

Lawrence threw for 12 touchdowns and 17 interceptions and set a franchise rookie record with 3,641 passing yards as a rookie in 2021.
