During the Jaguars’ seventh OTA practice on Monday, backup quarterback C.J. Beathard went down and was carted off the field.
According to the NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero, Beathard injured his groin, and an MRI was pending to reveal the extent of the injury.
The six-year veteran was in line to be the backup to QB Trevor Lawrence. After practice, Lawrence discussed what he saw with Beathard’s injury.
“I didn’t. I was looking at the throw and saw him on the ground, wasn’t sure exactly if someone bumped into him if he just went the wrong way,” Lawrence said. “I don’t really know, but like I said, just hoping he’s alright, and we’ll go back and look at it on film. Maybe we’ll be able to tell a little bit more, but I didn’t see what happened.”
If Beathard is down for an extended period, the Jaguars have second-year QB Jake Luton and undrafted rookie free agent E.J. Perry.
You never like to see injuries during OTAs, so hopefully, Beathard’s injury is not too serious.
