Lawson is no longer slowed by the ankle injury that ended his season last December, Josh Reed of WIVB 4 Buffalo reports. "Since I got cleared with the ankle injury I'm doing everything right," Lawson said. "I took care of my body, I'm eating right and doing everything a pro does to be successful."

It's a make-or-break year for Lawson as he enters his third NFL campaign. The defensive end, who was the 19th overall selection in the 2016 NFL Draft, has struggled to stay on the field the past two campaigns, missing 11 regular-season contests and one playoff game. With only six sacks in the 21 games he has played, Lawson hasn't been the edge-rushing terror the Bills envisioned when they selected him out of Clemson. With the Bills adding a proven pass rusher in Trent Murphy (knee) in free agency this offseason, Lawson's starting gig is in jeopardy, and he may be firmly on the roster bubble heading into training camp.
