  • Jets' Carl Lawson: Cleared for camp

    The Jets activated Lawson (Achilles) off the PUP list Tuesday, Zack Rosenblatt of The Athletic reports. Lawson's stint on the PUP list lasted less than a week. He is set to start on the Jets' front seven come Week 1, though he doesn't get to the quarterback frequently enough to be fantasy relevant outside of the deepest of leagues.

  • Jets' Carl Lawson: On PUP list to start training camp

    Lawson (Achilles) was placed on the Jets' active/PUP list Thursday, Rich Cimini of ESPN.com reports. Lawson may need more time to fully recover before returning from a ruptured Achilles suffered last offseason. The 27-year-old defensive end is expected to be healthy for the start of the regular season, but he must receive medical clearance before he can practice in training camp. Lawson has yet to play for the Jets after signing a three-year, $45 million deal with the team as a free agent in March of 2021.

  • Jets' Carl Lawson: Expected to be ready by Week 1

    Lawson (Achilles) is expected to be fully healthy by Week 1 of the 2022 regular season, Nick Wojton of USA Today reports. Lawson signed a three-year, $45 million contract with the Jets last year, but he never played a game for his new team after rupturing his left Achilles during training camp. Initial reports suggested he may be full go by training camp this year, but it appears New York will remain cautious with Lawson to avoid any potential setbacks. The 2017 fourth-round pick posted 36 tackles, 5.5 sacks and two forced fumbles across 16 games for the Bengals in 2020.

  • Jets' Carl Lawson: Still on track for training camp

    Lawson (Achilles) said Wednesday that he expects to be back for training camp, Connor Hughes of The Athletic reports. Jets head coach Robert Saleh made similar comments about Lawson's status at the end of March and the pass rusher's rehab appears to be going well more than a month later. Lawson signed a big contract ahead of the 2021 season but missed the entire campaign due to a ruptured left Achilles suffered in August. He posted 36 tackles, 5.5 sacks and two forced fumbles across 16 games for the Bengals in 2020.

  • Jets' Carl Lawson: On track for training camp

    Coach Robert Saleh said Monday he expects Lawson (Achilles) to be ready for the start of training camp. Lawson missed the entire 2021 campaign due to a ruptured left Achilles suffered last August. The Jets are hoping a full recovery on Lawson's part will allow him to return as an impact player on defense for the 2022 season, so the 26-year-old's recovery process this offseason will be worth keeping an eye on. Back in 2020, Lawson racked up 36 tackles, 5.5 sacks and two forced fumbles across 16 games for the Bengals.

  • Jets' Carl Lawson: Done for season

    Lawson ruptured his Achilles on Thursday and will miss the entire 2021 season, Eric Allen of the Jets' official site reports. Lawson, who was carted off the practice field Thursday, had been signed by the team to a three-year, $45 million contract this offseason. Losing the defensive end, who had looked good this summer prior to his injury, is a big blow to the Jets defense, with the 26-year-old having been counted on to fortify the team's pass rush in 2021.

  • Jets' Carl Lawson: Set to undergo MRI

    Lawson is slated to undergo an MRI on his Achilles, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports. Lawson was carted off the practice field Thursday, and the fact that he has an Achilles' concern is obviously troubling.

  • Jets' Carl Lawson: Carted off with leg injury

    Lawson (leg) was carted off the practice field Thursday, Brian Costello of the New York Post reports. The severity of Lawson's injury remains undisclosed, but it's always worrying to see a player leave the field under such circumstances. The veteran defensive end inked a three-year, $45 million deal with the Jets this offseason, and the team is counting on him to lock down a starting role and bring pressure.

  • Jets' Carl Lawson: Comes to terms with Jets

    Lawson signed a three-year, $45 million deal with Jets on Monday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports. Lawson received $30 million in guaranteed money after a successful four-year stint in Cincinnati. He was most productive from a pass-rushing perspective in 2017 -- his rookie campaign -- when he managed 8.5 sacks. However, he earned by far his biggest role during the 2020 campaign, when he logged 723 defensive snaps. He'll immediately slot into a starting defensive end role with the Jets and be expected to bolster the pass rush.

  • Bengals' Carl Lawson: Minimal action in finale

    Lawson, who registered two solo tackles in Sunday's loss to the Ravens, ended his 2020 season with 36 tackles (18 solo), 5.5 sacks and two forced fumbles. Lawson's 2020 campaign included new career highs in tackles and forced fumbles. The 25-year-old also saw the most defensive snaps (723) among Bengals D-linemen. The pass rusher enters the 2021 offseason as an unrestricted free agent, so he may have played his last down in Cincinnati.

  • Bengals' Carl Lawson: Stuffs stat sheet Sunday

    Lawson recorded eight tackles (four solo), two sacks and forced fumble in Sunday's tie with the Eagles.

  • Bengals' Carl Lawson: Getting start Sunday

    Lawson is expected to start at one of the defensive end positions for Sunday's game against Baltimore, Paul Dehner Jr. of The Athletic reports. Lawson has been almost a nonfactor in three games he's suited up in this season, collecting just four tackles (one solo) in 97 total defensive snaps. He will be taking the place of Carlos Dunlap (knee), so it will be interesting to see if an increased role will get Lawson back on track for 2019.

    Lawson (hamstring) did not practice Wednesday. Lawson exited Sunday's loss to the 49ers due to a hamstring issue and did not retake the field. It remains to be seen whether he'll manage to suit up Week 3 versus the Bills. His absence would detract from Cincinnati's pass rush.

  • Bengals' Carl Lawson: Not rushing rehab for training camp

    Lawson (knee) may not be cleared for the start of training camp later in July, Paul Dehner of The Athletic reports. The Bengals' training camp begins July 27, so Lawson will have a couple more weeks of rehab before he misses any practice time. The 24-year-old said that his lone goal is to be ready for Week 1 and that he's "not really stressing [about] pushing towards camp," but noted that he'll be on the field if he feels 100 percent. Lawson underwent surgery to repair a torn right ACL in November and could move to the Physically Unable to Perform list if he's still limited at the start of camp.

  • Bengals' Carl Lawson: Will require surgery on left knee

    Lawson, who suffered an ACL tear Oct. 28 against the Buccaneers that will require season-ending surgery, was spotted with a brace on his left knee Monday, Geoff Hobson of the Bengals' official site reports. It had previously been believed that Lawson was dealing with a torn ACL in his right knee, the same knee in which he required surgery to address ligament damage during his freshman year of college at Auburn. Fortunately for Lawson, he tore the ACL of the other knee instead, which should increase his chances of bouncing back from the procedure effectively. The Bengals will likely reveal a timeline for Lawson's recovery once the surgery is completed, but he should have a decent shot at being available for Week 1 of the 2019 season.

  • Bengals' Carl Lawson: Won't return Sunday

    Lawson (knee) will not return to Sunday's game against the Buccaneers due to a knee injury, Katherine Terrell of ESPN.com reports. Lawson suffered a knee injury during the first half of Cincinnati's contest against the Bengals, the severity of which will prevent him from returning to the Week 8 matchup. Lawson provided a big bump in the pass rush last year for the Bengals but hasn't been able to have that impact this season.
