Sport Trevor Lawrence has a good reason for skipping medical exams in Indy: He's getting married
Indy 500 test at Indianapolis Motor Speedway: Entry list and how to watch on Peacock
An IndyCar test for the 105th Indy 500 will be held Thursday and Friday at Indianapolis Motor Speedway and will be broadcast on Peacock by NBC Sports.The test will be broadcast live on the Peacock streaming service from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. ET Thursday and from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. ET Friday.
In-person medical exams are taking place this weekend for NFL draft prospects, and almost 150 potential draftees are already in Indianapolis getting checked and scanned in advance of the draft on April 29.
One person won't be joining them, though: likely No. 1 pick Trevor Lawrence. The Clemson quarterback had surgery in February to repair a torn labrum in his left shoulder, so while it seems odd that he's missing medical exams that could reveal how his surgically-repaired shoulder is healing, he's got a really good reason for being absent. According to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, he's getting married to his girlfriend Marissa Mowry this weekend.

April 2021 could wind up being the most important month of Trevor Lawrence’s entire life when he looks back on it.

Presumptive No. 1 pick— Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) QB Trevor Lawrence won’t be in Indy for the exams for a pretty good reason — He’s getting married to his long-time girlfriend Marissa Mowry this weekend. Lawrence is recovering from a torn labrum in his left shoulder, but rehab is going very well.
Lawrence and Mowry have been engaged since July 2020, when he proposed to her on the field at Clemson's Memorial Stadium.
It's a little strange that a potential top draft pick with a healing shoulder is just completely missing these medical exams, but Lawrence has nothing to lose or gain by missing them. He's the consensus No. 1 pick, and getting married instead of an MRI won't change that. Are the Jacksonville Jaguars going to cross a potential franchise quarterback off their draft list because he decided to tie the knot? Even if that feels like a very Jaguars thing to do, not even they would do that.
