The fans in Jacksonville are excited and hopeful that the team can make a deep run in the playoffs.

They’ll also need their best players on the field which is why many are wondering whether starting quarterback Trevor Lawrence will be suiting up to start today against the Chargers.
Trevor Lawrence injury status for Wild Card Weekend
During Week 13, Trevor Lawrence injured his toe and it’s had lingering effects on his status in the weeks that have followed. Heading into the Jaguars’ game against the Los Angeles Chargers, Lawrence was among a handful of players dubbed questionable for the game in the Super Wild Card Weekend playoff game.
Leading up to the game, Lawrence has been a limited participant in practice which made many wonder if he could be ruled out from the game. However, it’s good news for Jacksonville fans.
Will Trevor Lawrence play against the Chargers?
Although Trevor Lawrence does enter the Wild Card Weekend round of the playoffs with an injury status of questionable, Lawrence is expected to take to the field tonight to face the Chargers. This isn’t too surprising as Lawrence hasn’t missed a beat since sustaining his toe injury in Week 13.
With the playoffs kicking off, Lawrence is hoping to help lead his team to a victory over the Chargers and make it into the Divisional Round of the playoffs. His limited practice throughout the week leading up to tonight’s game was likely in part to help prevent further irritating the injury or taking any risks which could sideline the team’s starting quarterback.
