Jaguars quarterback Trevor Lawrence suffered a scary-looking injury last Sunday against the Lions. His left leg got twisted as he was being sacked. 

Fortunately for the Jaguars, Lawrence dodged a major injury. He actually returned for the second half of action. 

After undergoing tests, the Jaguars determined that Lawrence is dealing with a toe injury. It was serious enough to keep him off the practice field on Wednesday and Thursday. 

The latest update on Lawrence's status, however, is quite promising. 

Jaguars head coach Doug Pederson said Lawrence will practice this Friday. The team will then see how he feels on Saturday.  

Lawrence has already said that he wants to play this Sunday against the Titans. 

“That’s the plan,” Lawrence said. “… Feeling better today than I was Monday and yesterday. A little bit of the soreness is kind of going down a little bit. Obviously still sore and kind of taking it day by day, but … I feel pretty good.”

Jacksonville's coaching staff has been raving about Lawrence's toughness throughout this week.

While the Jaguars would love to have Lawrence under center this weekend, they'll have to make sure he clears a few hurdles before naming him the Week 14 starter.
