The Cowboys placed Lawrence (foot) on injured reserve Thursday, Howard Balzer of SI.com reports.

After Lawrence underwent surgery on a fractured fifth metatarsal in his foot Thursday, the Cowboys made the procedural move to free up a spot on the 53-man roster. The pass rusher is expected to be sidelined for 6-to-8 weeks, meaning he likely won't be available until November, at the earliest. In Lawrence's place, Tarell Basham and Dorance Armstrong are the likely candidates to get run opposite Randy Gregory, who currently is on the reserve/COVID-19 list.
