Jaguars QB Trevor Lawrence suffers ankle sprain in Monday's loss to Bengal

On Monday night, the Jacksonville Jaguars may have lost more than their footing in the AFC playoff battle.

Jaguars quarterback Trevor Lawrence suffered an ankle sprain in a 34-31 overtime loss to the Cincinnati Bengals and will get an MRI on Tuesday, according to NFL Network Insider Tom Pelissero.

Jaguars head coach Doug Pederson did not provide an update following the game, but did reveal Lawrence will undergo more testing on Tuesday.

According to NFL Network's Cameron Wolfe, Lawrence was able to stand on his ankle in the locker room after the loss but was careful not to put pressure or walk on it. 

According to Wolfe, Lawrence was spotted discussing injury information with his colleagues, and a number of them appeared to be in high spirits after conversing with him, before leaving the locker room in a walking boot.

Lawrence was hurt in the fourth quarter, with the score level at 28-28 with 5:25 remaining. During a dropback, he was stepped on by his offensive lineman, Walker Little, and was subsequently awkwardly bent backward while on the ground.

The Jaguars quarterback attempted to walk off the field but fell to the ground. He needed the assistance of two trainers to get back to the sidelines and into the tunnel for assessment.

Following a field-goal drive by Cincinnati, veteran backup C.J. Beathard entered the game in relief and led a three-point drive of his own to force OT. For the Jaguars, any hope of a happy outcome stopped there.

Beathard was unable to take advantage of the extra frame, as Jacksonville was forced to punt after a 26-yard drive stalled, and the Bengals moved down for a game-winning field goal by Evan McPherson.

The loss lowered the Jaguars to 8-4, leaving a cloud over the quarterback situation.
