The Jacksonville Jaguars will take on the Cincinnati Bengals in just a few hours. It’s a competition in which the last two No. 1 overall picks compete against each other. Tonight, Jaguars quarterback Trevor Lawrence is looking for his first win in the NFL, while Joe Burrow is looking for his third win of the 2021 season. On Thursday afternoon, the Jaguars announced that a notable wide receiver had been activated from injured reserve, which made things a little easier for Lawrence.
Tavon Austin suffered an injury during training camp before the start of the 2021 season. Austin is ready to return after spending the first three weeks of the season on injured reserve.
After a stint on the IR, Austin is ready to return. Austin has been activated from IR, according to Jaguars reporter Mia O’Brien, and will be eligible to play tonight.
