Urban Meyer says the competition at quarterback between Trevor Lawrence and Gardner Minshew remains open.
Via Mike Dempsey of 1010XL in Jacksonville, Meyer was asked on Thursday whether the competition for the Week One job remains open. Meyer said, “Yes.”
Meyer also said that both Lawrence and Minshew will play on Saturday against the Browns. Whoever plays with the starters presumably will have the edge. For now, Minshew’s name is listed first on the unofficial depth chart.
Jaguars coach Urban Meyer said it’s an open competition between QBs Trevor Lawrence and Gardner Minshew to start the season opener against Houston.
