Clemson quarterback and New York Jets’ 2021 NFL Draft target Trevor Lawrence has reportedly tested positive for COVID-19.

The kid every New York Jets fan wants to see quarterback their team next season has tested positive for COVID-19.

NFL Network reports that Clemson quarterback Trevor Lawrence has tested positive and will presumably miss his team’s tilt against Boston College on Saturday.

Lawrence, 21, has been a big topic of discussion this week. On Tuesday, he spoke to the media via Zoom and played both sides of the fence. Although he admits his intentions are to move on after the 2020 season, he also did leave the door open to a possible return.

His head coach, Dabo Swinney, doesn’t expect his star quarterback to return for a senior season.

Lawrence has racked up 1,833 passing yards and 17 touchdowns to just two interceptions in six games played this season.

The Sam Darnold-led New York Jets remain winless at 0-7. They’ll look for their first victory when they invade Arrowhead Stadium this Sunday. It will be a tough chore, indeed.


Clemson head coach Dabo Swinney later issued a statement regarding the initial report.

“Trevor has authorized us this evening to announce that he has tested positive for COVID-19 and is not in isolation,” Swinney said in a statement. “He is doing well with mild symptoms but will not be available for this week’s game against Boston College. While we certainly will miss Trevor, this is an opportunity for other guys to step up and we’re excited about competing against a very good BC team on Saturday. Go Tigers.”
