Lawson recorded three tackles (two solo), including a sack, and a pass defensed in Sunday's win over the Jets.
Lawson got the start Sunday while Trent Murphy (knee) was held out. The result was Lawson's second sack of the year and second pass defensed. He's been a capable defender but hasn't put up big numbers to warrant much IDP consideration. He'll look to build off of Sunday's game in Week 11, when Buffalo plays Jacksonville.
Lawson's teammate Trent Murphy has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Jets due to a knee injury.
That puts Lawson in the starter's spot again, where he'll look to build off last week's strong production where he put up seven tackles (four solo). The Jets aren't exactly an offensive juggernaut, so there should be a decent number of opportunities for Lawson to make some plays.
Lawson had seven tackles (four solo) and a pass defensed in Sunday's loss to the Bears.
The 2016 first-rounder saw the field for 78 percent of the defensive snaps due to starter Trent Murphy being sidelined with a knee injury. Murphy is being labeled "week-to-week," so Lawson could be in store for a starter's workload again this week against the Jets, a team that's been struggling offensively almost as much as the downtrodden Bills.
Lawson's teammate Trent Murphy has been ruled out of Monday's game against the Patriots due to a knee injury.
Lawson has played in five games this season and has seen between 19 and 35 snaps in all of them as the No. 3 defensive end used to spell Murphy and Jerry Hughes. It looks like he'll get more of a chance to shine against Tom Brady's squad in prime time, so it'll be interesting to see what the 2016 first-rounder does with it. Lawson's 2018 play has been regarded well by the coaching staff following two disappointing seasons to begin his career, though his seven tackles and 1.0 sacks at nearly the halfway point shows the praise is somewhat relative. We'll see if he can take his game up another notch working under a full snap count.
Lawson (hamstring) practiced fully Friday after working on a limited basis for the first two practices of the week and does not appear on the injury report for Sunday's game against the Titans, the Bills' official site reports.
Lawson is technically a reserve, but he proved he can handle interior-line work last week in addition to his normal pass-rushing duties. Therefore, expect for him to see the field often this week as a "No. 5" option across the line.
