Feb. 5 (UPI) -- Clemson Tigers star quarterback Trevor Lawrence will undergo surgery to repair a labrum injury in his non-throwing shoulder.
League sources told ESPN and NFL Media on Friday that Lawrence will have the procedure after he throws for NFL scouts on Feb. 12. He made the decision to throw earlier so he can have additional recovery time prior to the start of the 2021 NFL season.
Lawrence's representatives said he will not take part in Clemson's pro day in March. Doctors are confident that he will recover in time for training camp.
The Jacksonville Jaguars hold the No. 1 pick in this year's NFL Draft. The franchise is expected to select Lawrence with the top choice, meaning he would play for new NFL head coach Urban Meyer.
Lawrence, who was a Heisman Trophy finalist this past season, recorded 10,098 passing yards and 90 touchdowns across three seasons at Clemson. The 21-year-old quarterback won a College Football Playoff national title in 2018 with the Tigers.
