The Jacksonville Jaguars announced Week 16 inactives and Trevor Lawrence is officially ACTIVE for their matchup against the New York Jets. Lawrence was listed as questionable this week due to a toe injury. He was limited throughout the week, which was expected during the short week.

Lawrence has been dealing with this toe injury for a few weeks and has put forth two of his best games of the season. He has back-to-back games with at least 318 passing yards and three touchdowns. On the year, Lawrence has completed 66% of his passes for 3,520 yards with 24 touchdowns and seven interceptions in 14 games.

The main benefit of Lawrence under center is the huge upgrade over would-be backup C.J. Beathard. Jacksonville has a 6-8 record and sits in second place in the AFC South. They currently sit outside the AFC playoff picture and need a win on Thursday to stay in the hunt. Lawrence being active gives them that needed boost and should help them compete in this matchup.
