Lawson is all smiles as he might be ready to play soon for the Bills

Buffalo Bills general manager Doug Whaley was on WGR Sportsradio 550 on Tuesday and said that Shaq Lawson should be ready to practice during Week 7 of the NFL football season.

“He’s on schedule,” said Whaley via “We just had a meeting yesterday so after the six weeks if there are no setbacks he’ll be able to start practicing and we’ll see where it goes after that. But everything we’ve heard from the medical staff is that he’s ready and raring to go.”

Lawson is not eligible to participate in practice until week 7 because he is currently on the reserve/PUP list since the beginning of the season with his shoulder injury.

He finished his final season at Clemson with 86 tackles, 25.5 tackles for loss (first in the nation), 12.5 sacks and 15 quarterback hurries. For his collegiate career, he had 167 tackles, 46.5 tackles for loss, 20 sacks, 29 quarterback pressures and two fumble recoveries. He was named a consensus first-team All-American, a finalist for the Hendricks Award, the Bednarik Award, the Lombardi Award and the fourth player since 2011 to go from Daniel High School to Clemson to the NFL.
