The 24-year-old missed the first four games of the season due to a suspension and dealt with back soreness during his first two games back. He sustained a shoulder injury in Sunday's win over of the Packers that ultimately left him available for just 29 snaps. There is no word yet on the results from his MRI, but his status will need to be monitored throughout the week.
Lawrence is eligible to return from his four-game suspension this week, NFL.com's Ian Rapoport reports.
Lawrence missed Dallas' first four games after violating the NFL's substance abuse policy. Now that his punishment has been served, Lawrence is eligible to rejoin his teammates to start this week. While a roster move will still need to be made, Lawrence could make his season debut Sunday against the Bengals. His return represents a significant boost to the Cowboys' defense, as he posted 55 tackles and eight sacks in his second season last year.
Lawrence's four-game suspension for violating the NFL's substance abuse policy has been upheld, Todd Archer of ESPN reports.
Lawrence received the four-game suspension back in April and filed an appeal in May. Now that the suspension has been upheld it's clear that Dallas will be without Lawrence, Randy Gregory (suspension), and Rolando McClain (suspension) to start the year, three significant players on the team's front seven. With Lawrence out, Ryan Russell, David Irving, and Benson Mayowa figure to see some extra snaps to start the year.
