Lawrence (shoulder) will likely open training camp on the Physically Unable to Perform list, Todd Archer of ESPN reports. Lawrence said in April that the shoulder surgery he underwent that month was said to have a recovery timeline of 4-to-6 months. The defensive end has also stated confidence in returning before Week 1, which would obviously require getting back by the earliest part of that timeline. However, it doesn't seem he'll be getting much practice during training camp regardless, though Lawrence could theoretically stay in shape since he's not dealing with a lower-body injury.
Lawrence (shoulder) is expected to begin training camp on the PUP list, David Moore of The Dallas Morning News reports. In the wake of receiving the most guaranteed money for a non-quarterback in his new contract, Lawrence is slated for shoulder surgery Wednesday to correct issues that have plagued him multiple times in his five-year career. While the PUP list likely will be his home in late July and into August, the Cowboys believe he'll be ready for Week 1. Once he gets the all-clear, Lawrence will lead a pass rush that now includes offseason trade acquisition Robert Quinn.
Lawrence (shoulder) will have surgery Wednesday, Clarence E. Hill Jr. of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports. Lawrence and the Cowboys reached an agreement on a five-year extension Friday, so both parties undoubtedly want the Boise State product at 100 percent heading into training camp. Lawrence held off on surgery at first, using it as a bargaining chip during negotiations leading up to the extension. The 27-year-old logged 64 total tackles (42 solo, 22 assisted) and 10.5 sacks over 16 games in 2018.
The Cowboys and Lawrence (shoulder) reached an agreement on a five-year extension Friday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports. Despite Lawrence's unwillingness to play under the franchise tag for a second straight season, the Cowboys placed it on the pass rusher prior to the deadline to do so in early March. At the recent league meetings, owner Jerry Jones noted Lawrence was delaying shoulder surgery until he attained a long-term commitment. Rapoport relayed that this new contract is in excess of $100 million, but the key will be whether Lawrence surpasses the Lions' Trey Flowers in terms of guaranteed money ($50 million). With his future determined, Lawrence likely will go under the knife soon as he looks to match his output from the last two seasons, when he accumulated 25 sacks in 32 games.
Lawrence has yet to undergo shoulder surgery, David Moore of The Dallas Morning News reports. Seemingly using his health as a bargaining chip in contract negotiations, Lawrence is delaying the inevitable until he and the Cowboys come to terms in a long-term deal. The team used the franchise tag on him for a second straight year, which will equate to $20.6 million in 2019 but no money beyond this coming season. Despite tending to shoulder injuries multiple times in his five-year career, he racked up a combined 25 sacks while playing every contest in 2017 and 2018. With such production, it's no surprise the potential earnings at stake as well as the paths taken by both sides.
