Lawrence has 3 INTs as Meyer era starts with loss

Trevor Lawrence had the first three-interception game of his career as the Jaguars struggled with self-inflicted mistakes in a season-opening defeat to the Texans on Sunday that marred Urban Meyer's NFL coaching debut.

Jaguars coach Urban Meyer on the procedure penalties: "It's inexcusable the things that need to be fixed. Three preseason games you'd think we'd have that fixed so that's something that we're going to … I would guestimate you would not see that again. That's inexcusable.”

Jaguars coach Urban Meyer, when asked if the locker room was shell-shocked after the loss: "I don't really know that word other than we've all got our ass kicked before. Let's tighten up and go. I believe in that team. I believe in our staff. Come back to work. Gonna earn your captain's stripes and leadership stripes as a coach and leaders on the team. But I believe in those guys."

So, to recap the Jaguars' first half, trailing the Texans 27-7: Five drops, Two INTs, seven total penalties, illegal participation penalty, three of five OL called for holding (plus LT Cam Robinson called for two that didn't stand), allowed a 52-yard completion to the 8 with 12 seconds to play (led to TD).

Jaguars inactives vs. Texans: S Daniel Thomas, CB Tre Herndon, OL Walker Little, TE Jacob Hollister, DE/LB Jordan Smith, DL Adam Gotsis, DL Jay Tufele. So Will Richardson will be the swing tackle. Urban Meyer had said earlier in the week that Herndon would be out.

If the Jaguars beat the Texans today, QB Trevor Lawrence will become just the fifth quarterback taken first overall in the modern draft era (since 1967) to win their first start. David Carr (2002), Michael Vick (2001), John Elway (1983) and Jim Plunkett (1971) all won their first starts. There have been 25 QBs taken first overall in that span and they have gone a combined 4-20-1 in their first starts. Kyler Murray (2019) had the tie.

Jaguars coach Urban Meyer said CB Tyson Campbell (questionable/calf) will play vs Texans. DE Jordan Smith a Friday addition to the injury report and is questionable (knee).

First injury report of the 2021 season is pretty light for the Jaguars. Coach Urban Meyer already said CB Tre Herndon (knee) will not play against the Texans.
