Shenault Highlights #NFLBuffs For Week Four
BOULDER -- Week four saw a breakout performance by Jacksonville Jaguars wide receiver Laviska Shenault Jr., who had his best game of the season in primetime catching six passes for 99 yards in the Jags 24-21 loss to the Cincinnati Bengals on Thursday Night Football.
He caught Trevor Lawrence's longest completion so far in his career on a 52-yard spin-around reception that showcased Shenault's pure athleticism. He looks poised to have a bigger role in the Jaguars offense as he was Lawrence's top target on Thursday night.
