Trevor Lawrence runs wild on injured knee in Jaguars’ win over Saints: ‘Funny how that works’

Lawrence finished 20-of-29 passing for 204 yards and a touchdown — 44 of those yards came on a 3-yard toss that Christian Kirk took for the game-winning TD.

With a questionable knee, the Jags QB got the ball out quickly to avoid the rush. Lawrence averaged a 2.20-second time to throw, which led to just three total pressures. The QB wasn’t pressured on any of his 11 dropbacks in the second half, per Next Gen Stats.

And when he couldn’t get the ball out quickly, he used his legs, which seemed to surprise a Saints defense that likely didn’t plan for a mobile quarterback, given the knee injury.

Coach Doug Pederson glowed about his QB’s ability to play through ailment.

“It just again shows the type of person he is and the unselfishness he has,” Pederson said. “I saw it last year when he got injured. He got injured in the Detroit game, and he battled injury throughout the rest of the year and gutted that out. This is different. This is a short week. On Monday, I would have told you he was not playing in this football game, but that’s not who Trevor is. Again, I’m proud of his effort — the ability to escape the pocket and run. Fortunately, they were straight-ahead runs. He didn’t have to cut too much. A lot of gutsy performances out there, and his is probably the No. 1.”

Winners of four consecutive games, the 5-2 Jaguars now have 10 days for Lawrence to rest his knee before they face the Pittsburgh Steelers in Week 8, followed by a Week 9 bye.
