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.
Lawson (ankle) is considered week-to-week, Mike Rodak of ESPN.com reports.
Lawson suffered the injury in Sunday's loss to the Patriots and was carted to the locker room. He was later seen leaving the locker room in a walking boot, which surely doesn't bode well for his status for Week 14. Expect some clarity on Lawson's status once the Bills release their first injury report from practice.
Lawson was carted to the locker room with the ankle injury and was designated questionable to return, but never appeared to retake the field. The walking boot isn't a good sign but is often a precautionary measure utilized by teams, so his status for Week 14 may not become clear until the Bills take to the practice field this week.
Lawson sustained an ankle injury in Sunday's loss to the Patriots, Vic Carucci of The Buffalo News reports.
Lawson was carted to the locker room but was still designated questionable to return. There has been no further information available on the injury at this point.
Lawson didn't start Sunday against the Chiefs due to a disciplinary matter that coach Sean McDermott said is between him and the player, The Buffalo News reports.
That's actually good news for those in deep IDP leagues that own Lawson, as the original thought was that the second-year player might be losing a hold on his starting job to Eddie Yarbrough. It sounds like the disciplinary matter is in the past, as Lawson ended up playing two-thirds of the defensive snaps and recorded four tackles. Lawson's potential remains high, though his total of three sacks at this stage of the season remains pretty disappointing.
