Despite a solid showing from Garnder Minshew, the Jacksonville Jaguars officially named rookie quarterback, and #1 overall pick, Trevor Lawrence as their starting quarterback for Week 1 against the Houston Texans, Jags head coach Urban Meyer announced.

While Lawrence completed 20 of his 32 pass attempts in two games this preseason, the offensive line has shown some serious warts, as Lawrence has been pressured on 37% of his dropbacks this preseason and sacked three times, h/t ESPN Stats & Information data.

Toe make matters more difficult, Lawrence will be without rooking running back Travis Etienne, who suffered a season-ending Lisfranc injury on Monday.
