Jaguars quarterback Trevor Lawrence suffered an ankle sprain during the team’s Monday night game against the Bengals, which the Jacksonville Jaguars later confirmed via their official Twitter account.

The initial diagnosis was an ankle sprain, and Lawrence was set to undergo an MRI on Tuesday.

Lawrence was visibly frustrated as he was helped by two trainers to reach the locker room after he was injured on a third-and-long play with just under six minutes left in the game.

The injury occurred when Bengals pass rusher Trey Hendrickson stepped on Lawrence’s left ankle while Little, starting in place of an injured Cam Robinson, accidentally stepped on Lawrence’s left ankle.

As a result, Lawrence slammed his helmet to the grass and was seen limping gingerly with the help of trainers.

Lawrence’s backup, former 49ers reserve C.J. Beathard, replaced Lawrence under center for the remainder of the contest. However, Beathard also suffered an injury shortly after entering the game, and the Jaguars did not have a third QB available.

The injury is a significant blow to the Jaguars, who will likely have to rely more on Beathard going forward. Lawrence, the first overall pick in the 2021 NFL Draft, has been a standout player for Jacksonville, showing great potential and leading the team to an unexpected Week 13 upset win over the Bengals.

With Lawrence out, the Jaguars fell to the Bengals 34-31 in overtime .

Lawrence is set to undergo an MRI on Tuesday, and the Jaguars will provide an update on his condition after the procedure.

In the meantime, the team will have to prepare for their upcoming game without their star quarterback
