Lawson (hamstring) is not practicing for a second straight day Thursday, Mike Rodak of ESPN.com reports.
Jerry Hughes and Trent Murphy will certainly see a spike in snaps if Lawson is unable to go Sunday against the Chargers.
Lawson, who suffered a hamstring injury in Sunday's loss to the Ravens, didn't practice Wednesday, Joe Buscaglia of WKBW.com reports.
Lawson saw action on 44 percent of the Bills' defensive snaps in Week 1, logging one tackle and one pass breakup before departing. The 24-year-old is part of a three-man rotation at defensive end that includes Jerry Hughes and Trent Murphy, so those two veterans would likely see more time in Week 2 if Lawson can't rally in time to play.
Lawson suffered a hamstring injury during the fourth quarter of Sunday's loss to the Ravens, Mark Gaughan of The Buffalo News reports.
The game was well out of hand when Lawson left so we won't know more about his injury until the team resumes its weekly routine and prep for Sunday's game against the Chargers. Lawson registered just one tackle and one pass defensed before the injury took place.
Lawson (ankle) has been cleared of his injury, Josh Reed of WIVB.com reports. "Since I got cleared with the ankle injury I'm doing everything right," Lawson noted. "I took care of my body, I'm eating right and doing everything a pro does to be successful."
It's make or break for Lawson in year three, as the defensive end has struggled to stay on the field the past two seasons. He enters this year with a new mindset, as he is on the bubble to secure a spot on the 53-man roster. The former first-round pick has six sacks across his first two years in the league.
After being considered week-to-week, Lawson's status quickly changed and the defensive end's 2017 season is officially over after having his ankle rolled up on the goal line. Lawson ends the season with a team-high four sacks, and the Bills promoted defensive end Cap Capi to take his spot on the active roster.
