06/08/16 - DE Shaq Lawson signed a rookie contact with the Bills this week. Lawson was the 19th player selected, and he was considered a player who could step right in and start for Buffalo as a rookie in the outside linebacker spot vacated by Mario Williams, who left for the Miami Dolphins as a free agent. However, the 6-foot-3, 270-pounder from Clemson is currently unable to practice because he underwent shoulder surgery a few weeks ago. He likely won't play until the middle of the regular season.
05/16/16 - DE Shaq Lawson, Buffalo's first-round pick in this year's NFL Draft, will undergo shoulder surgery on Tuesday.

"The Buffalo Bills are taking measures to prevent the possibility of Shaq Lawson aggravating a pre-existing shoulder condition during the season," the Bills said in a statement.
01/09/16 - Clemson defensive end Shaq Lawson remains sore but hopes to play against Alabama in the national championship game Monday night. Lawson hurt his left knee early in the Tigers' 37-17 win over Oklahoma in the Orange Bowl on New Year's Eve. He was diagnosed with a sprained medial collateral ligament, an injury that was still bothering him. Lawson rated his pain level at an eight on a scale of 10. But he said he's gradually felt better as the week wore on and believes he'll be on the field against the Crimson Tide (13-1). "There's a very good chance I will play," he said at Saturday's media session. Clemson is seeking to become the first 15-0 national champion.
Linemate Kevin Dodd said he was uncertain if Lawson's injury would allow him to play at the level he has all season. Lawson leads the Tigers with 10.5 sacks and the country with 23.5 tackles for loss. He apparently hurt himself when he swept around Oklahoma's offensive line to get in on a sack of quarterback Booker Mayfield in the first quarter. Lawson came to the sidelines after that. He said after the game that he felt his knee buckle a bit on an earlier play. Lawson spent the second half with ice on the knee cheering on his teammates, who outscored Oklahoma 21-0 during the final 30 minutes to advance. Dodd said he's seen Lawson work this week to get himself back in the lineup. - AP Sports
