Summary from the Final Week of Camp
Trevor Lawrence was flawless in the preseason finale against the Cowboys. He completed 11-of-12 passes for 139 yards and two touchdowns in three drives as he moved the first-team offense with ease. Coach Urban Meyer got some slight backlash for putting Lawrence on the field, “I made that decision (to play Lawrence), and there was a lot of angst about that, but he has to play.” Lawrence showed some confidence on his end, getting the necessary reps in before the season starts. “I felt good. I thought we had a good game plan. Honestly, it’s all about execution, though. I think we had a good game plan last week too. We just didn’t execute it. It doesn’t matter what you run, if everybody’s on the same page and everybody knows it, you’re going to play well.” With Lawrence locked in as the starter, the team traded away Gardner Minshew for a sixth-round pick. With Minshew gone, C.J. Beathard becomes the No. 2.
Coach Meyer hasn’t said much about Travis Etienne’s season-ending injury, other than characterizing it as a “shot to the jaw.” When asked about how they’ll replace Etienne’s intended role as a dynamic, multi-faceted weapon out of the backfield, Meyer played coy. "He was really coming on in practice, and you saw his big-play ability," Meyer said. "It's a tough injury. How do we fill that? We're still having that conversation right now." The answer likely lies in significantly increasing James Robinson’s touches and playing Carlos Hyde a lot more than he would’ve if both Robinson and Etienne were healthy.
