Former Clemson standout Shaq Lawson had minor arthroscopic surgery on his knee according to a team report on Friday and expected to be cleared to participate in all Bills' offseason activities.
Lawson missed the first six weeks of his rookie season recovering from shoulder surgery and finished the year with 13 tackles, two sacks, a forced fumble, and a pass deflection.
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. These gaudy numbers landed him as 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.
For his collegiate career, he had 167 tackles, 46.5 tackles for loss, 20 sacks, 29 quarterback pressures and two fumble recoveries.
