Bengals' Carl Lawson: Notches sack in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lawson recorded two solo tackles and a sack in Sunday's loss to the Raiders.

Lawson played 26 snaps and was able to log his second sack of the year in the process. He's finished third among Bengals' defensive ends in snaps in both games since their Week 9 bye.

Bengals' Carl Lawson: Full speed ahead
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lawson (hamstring) is listed as a full participant for Wednesday's practice, Jay Morrison of The Athletic reports.

Lawson sat out the past two games, but Week 9's bye aided the third-year pro in getting back to full speed. In his last healthy game, Lawson played 63 of a possible 78 defensive snaps (80 percent) against the Ravens since Carlos Dunlap was injured. Dunlap is fine now, however, so Lawson is slated for a reserve role again.

Bengals' Carl Lawson: Out again Week 8
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lawson (hamstring) was ruled out for Sunday's game versus the Rams in London, Ben Baby of ESPN.com reports.

Lawson hasn't taken the practice field since suffering the hamstring injury Week 6 in Baltimore and will miss his second straight game. Andrew Brown and Anthony Zettel will serve as the rotational options at defensive end in his absence.

Bengals' Carl Lawson: Sidelined by hamstring injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lawson was ruled out for Sunday's game against Jacksonville with a hamstring injury, Jay Morrison of The Athletic reports.

Lawson recorded his fist sack of the season last week against the Ravens, but he came out of the contest with the hamstring injury and didn't practice this week. Carlos Dunlap (knee) is considered doubtful, likely leaving the Bengals shorthanded at defensive end.

Bengals' Carl Lawson: Sack in spot start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lawson racked up three tackles (three solo) and a sack in Sunday's 23-17 loss to Baltimore.

With Carlos Dunlap (knee) inactive for the game, Lawson made the most of his starting duties, making his first sack of the season. Lawson ended up playing 78 percent of the defensive snaps in the game and moved his tackle total to seven for the campaign. If Dunlap is forced to miss Week 7 against Jacksonville, Lawson would be in line for another start.

Bengals' Carl Lawson: Getting start Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Bengals' Carl Lawson: Listed as full participant
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lawson (hamstring) is listed as being a full participant in Wednesday's walkthrough practice, Tyler Dragon of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

Lawson was inactive for Monday's loss to the Steelers due to a hamstring injury, but it appears as though he's already managed to fully recover. Barring any setbacks, Lawson is on track for his usual rotational role in Cincinnati's defensive line versus the Cardinals on Sunday.

Bengals' Carl Lawson: No-go for road clash
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lawson (hamstring) is officially listed as inactive for Monday's divisional matchup against Pittsburgh, Tyler Dragon of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

Lawson came into the game listed as doubtful after he was unable to practice the entire week, so this news doesn't come as a surprise. With Kerry Wynn (concussion) also sidelined, Andrew Brown is the team's only healthy depth defensive end for Week 4.

Bengals' Carl Lawson: Tagged as doubtful
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lawson (hamstring) is listed as doubtful for Monday's game versus the Steelers, Tyler Dragon of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

Lawson hasn't been able to practice this week, so it's unlikely he's ready at game time. However, the Bengals aren't ruling out the possibility since they could use the depth with Kerry Wynn (concussion) already out.

Bengals' Carl Lawson: Misses practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lawson (hamstring) was again absent from practice Friday, Ben Baby of ESPN.com reports.

Lawson played in Week 3 despite going into the contest with a doubtful tag. His status for Monday's game against the Steelers looks to again be in jeopardy, but with the team dealing with a plethora of injuries at defensive end, he could be forced to play through it. There should be more clarity on the situation after Saturday's final injury reports.

Bengals' Carl Lawson: Playing despite doubtful tag
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lawson (hamstring) is officially active for Sunday's game against Buffalo, Marisa Contipelli of the Bengals' official site reports.

Lawson came into the game listed as doubtful but, as evidenced by this news, surprisingly will be available. It's unclear what sort of role he'll have in the defense, but as of now, it can be assumed Lawson will be deployed in his usual depth role on the defensive line.

Bengals' Carl Lawson: Unlikely to play Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lawson (hamstring) is listed as doubtful for Sunday's game versus the Bills, Geoff Hobson of the Bengals' official site reports.

With Kerry Wynn (concussion) already ruled out, the Bengals are lacking depth at defensive end heading into Week 3. If Lawson is officially ruled out, Andrew Brown could see a respectable workload behind Sam Hubbard and Carlos Dunlap.

Bengals' Carl Lawson: Not practicing Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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: Leaves with hamstring injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lawson suffered a hamstring injury in Sunday's game against the Niners and won't return, Ben Baby of ESPN.com reports.

The Bengals have a lot of depth on the defensive line, but losing Lawson hurts them on the pass rush.

Bengals' Carl Lawson: Won't play Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lawson (knee) won't suit up for Saturday's preseason contest against the Chiefs, Paul Dehner Jr. of The Athletic reports.

Lawson appears to be progressing well in his recovery from a torn ACL, but he won't return to action just yet. The third-year pass rusher is in line to play a rotational role in Cincinnati when healthy, and the team appears willing to take a cautious approach to his recovery.

Bengals' Carl Lawson: First practice participant
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lawson (knee) was able to make the opening bell, practicing at the Bengals' first practice of training camp, Paul Dehner Jr. of The Athletic reports.

A month ago, Lawson wasn't certain that he could make it back in time for the start of training camp, but here he is. He and teammate Ryan Glasgow did a lot of rehab together from their respective torn ACLs, but Lawson's was suffered in Week 8 whereas Glasgow had his in Week 3. The Bengals are hoping that Lawson can recapture his burst off the line to give them a big boost in the pass rush.

Bengals' Carl Lawson: Not rushing rehab for training camp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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: No clear timetable for return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lawson (knee) doesn't have a clear timeline to return to the field, Fletcher Page of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports. "The goal overall is just be ready for the first game," Lawson said. "That's my goal to be set for. Be back by training camp or be back by this date -- I'm not going to sit there and rush it. I'm not. I'm ahead of schedule, but then again I could be down schedule. Until I feel right I'm not coming back. The goal is definitely the first game."

Lawson will be over 10 months removed from surgery to repair a torn ACL when the regular season opens in September. While it's not unrealistic to think he could return to team drills sometime during training camp, there also seems to be a decent chance Lawson opens camp on the Physically Unable to Perform list.

Bengals' Carl Lawson: Will require surgery on left knee
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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: Placed on IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lawson (knee) was officially placed on injured reserve Monday, Fletcher Page of Cincinnati.com reports.

Lawson tore his ACL on Oct. 28 against the Buccaneers and will be sidelined for the remainder of the season. Per the report, Lawson -- who suffered the same injury in college -- expects his recovery to take about eight months, though that is far from a certainty. The second-year linebacker had six tackles and one sack on the year before going down. Michael Johnson and Sam Hubbard will likely see increased workloads in Lawson's absence.
