Lawson (ankle) was downgraded from questionable to out for Sunday's game against the Packers.
Lawson was added to the injury report Friday and will miss his first game of the season. Jamal Agnew (knee) was also ruled out while DeShawn Shead (knee) is now on injured reserve, likely leaving Teez Tabor, Michael Cooper and Mike Ford to see increased defensive workloads in the season finale.
Lawson (ankle) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Packers, Michael Rothstein of ESPN.com reports.
Lawson has not missed a game yet this season, and will attempt to play through his ankle injury versus the Packers. If the starting cornerback were to sit out the season finale, Teez Tabor would benefit from an uptick in snaps.
Lawson logged four tackles, one sack and two tackles for loss during Sunday's 27-9 loss to the Vikings.
Granted he hasn't been sent on many blitzes over the years, but Lawson finally earned his first career sack 15 games into his fifth professional season. However, the owner of a 3.5-tackle average still isn't much of a fantasy option in Detroit's Week 17 game against Green Bay.
Lawson will start at cornerback Sunday against Chicago, Michael Rothstein of ESPN.com reports.
Lawson is drawing the start in place of Teez Tabor, who has struggled the past few weeks. Lawson has seen significant action for Detroit this season and could still see an uptick now that he's getting the start.
Lawson (illness) is active for Sunday's game versus the Packers.
Lawson has averaged more than 52 defensive snaps per game, and he's expected to have the same workload Sunday. The Packers will be playing three rookie wideouts behind Davante Adams, so Lawson could have a chance to make some noise in coverage.
