Jacksonville Jaguars quarterback Trevor Lawrence and running back Travis Etienne will not be playing Thursday’s Hall of Fame Game against the Las Vegas Raiders, Jaguars head coach Doug Pederson announced on Tuesday.

Etienne, who missed his entire rookie season with a Lisfranc injury, is currently not practicing due to illness but has been a full participant in training camp. The team plans to be careful with Etienne moving forward.

“Trevor’s been getting a lot of great looks here in practice,” Pederson said, according to ESPN’s Michael DiRocco. “(We) feel he’s in a good spot.”

“We’re still evaluating our roster,” Pederson said. “We’ve got a lot of young guys and a lot of battles that we want to start seeing in game situations.”

Lawrence is hoping to take a big step forward this upcoming season.
