Jacksonville Jaguars quarterback Trevor Lawrence didn’t participate in team drills at Monday’s minicamp due to his left hamstring injury.

The injury initially caused Lawrence to miss some organized team activity drills last week. He was able to do some individual work Monday.

Jacksonville coach Urban Meyer said the team didn’t want to risk a setback with the No. 1 overall draft pick.

“Our trainers and (passing game coordinator Brian Schottenheimer) are being a little cautious because right now when you’re a month out, you yank a hamstring now you’re going to miss the early part of the training camp,” Meyer said. “That’s that one muscle that, you guys have all seen it like I have, you pull a hamstring at this point you’re going to miss all your summer conditioning so we’re being somewhat conservative on it. But he actually could play a game if he had to.”

Lawrence admitted to being frustrated that the healing process hasn’t been quicker.

“It’s feeling good. It’s been about a week. Just trying to work it back to full capacity,” Lawrence said. “It’s a little frustrating just not being able to go full speed. I’m feeling good and just trying to not have any more setbacks. So taking it slow.

“Got some good reps today. So start getting more and more each day this week. And just kinda work back into it. It’s doing great. Try to work it back.”

Lawrence did most of his work off to the side on Monday but did throw in 7-on-7 drills. He was held out of all 11-on-11 drills.

The Jaguars conclude minicamp on Tuesday.
