  • Jaguars' Nevin Lawson: Fills stat sheet

    Lawson compiled four tackles (three solo), two passes defended and an interception in a 23-20 win over the Dolphins on Sunday. Lawson stepped into a big role for the first time since he joined the Jaguars after being let go by the Raiders earlier in the season. Playing 100 percent of the snaps with Tyson Campbell (toe) out, Lawson took advantage of his opportunity and made an impact. With Campbell's status up in the air heading into the Week 7 bye, it's hard to say whether Lawson will continue to enjoy as prominent a role in Week 8 against the Seahawks.

  • Raiders' Nevin Lawson: Will be unavailable for TNF

    Lawson (illness) is inactive for Thursday's matchup game the Chargers. After earning his eighth start of the 2020 campaign Week 14 against the Colts, Lawson popped up on the injury report Wednesday with a reported illness. It's since been confirmed that the issue is serious enough to hand Lawson his second absence of the season, thrusting Isaiah Johnson into a more integral role at cornerback. With Damon Arnette and Johnathan Abram both inactive due to concussions, plus Jeff Heath (concussion) residing on IR, the Raiders' secondary is hurting heading into Thursday night's matchup.

  • Raiders' Nevin Lawson: Suspension served

    Lawson had his suspension lifted following Sunday's win over the Panthers, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports. Lawson was handed a one-game suspension for "using a helmet that is no longer worn by anyone as a weapon to strike, swing at, or throw at an opponent" during last year's season finale against Denver. Now that he sat out of Sunday's season opener, he's eligible to return for Week 2's matchup versus the Saints, but he may stick to special teams to start off.

  • Raiders' Nevin Lawson: Eight tackles in loss

    Lawson posted eight tackles (four solo), including one tackle for loss, during Sunday's 20-16 loss to the Jaguars. Lawson drew the spot start at cornerback in Week 15 with Daryl Worley sidelined by a neck injury, and the former took advantage of the opportunity by doubling his previous season high in tackles. Lawson also logged 56 of a possible 57 defensive snaps, and he should see a hefty workload again in Week 16 if Worley remains out.

  • Raiders' Nevin Lawson: Hit with suspension

    Lawson is facing a four-game suspension for violating the league's substance abuse policy, per his official Twitter account. Lawson only projects to provide depth in Oakland's secondary, so his absence for the first four games of the season isn't likely to derail the team's defense. It does not currently appear that the 28-year-old veteran plans to appeal his suspension. Isaiah Johnson could benefit from increased opportunity while Lawson remains sidelined.

  • Lions' Nevin Lawson: Totals 47 tackles in 2017

    Lawson (concussion) recorded 47 tackles, four PBUs, one forced fumble, one fumble recovery and one touchdown over 15 games in 2017. Lawson was picked on often playing opposite 2017 All-Pro cornerback Darius Slay, and he didn't do much to stop it. In fact, Lawson ultimately finished the season with Pro Football Focus' fifth-lowest grade in pass coverage among 110 qualifying cornerbacks. To make matters worse for him is the concussion he sustained in Week 16, which prevented him from suiting up for the season finale against Green Bay. Lawson now enters the offseason as an unrestricted free agent.
