Two Tigers on Bills' physically unable to perform list

Former Clemson standouts Sammy Watkins and Shaq Lawson were placed on the physically unable to perform list along with 8 other teammates before the start of the Bills' training camp on Saturday.

Watkins had a small broken bone in his foot and consequentially had surgery in April to have a screw inserted to repair a stress fracture. However, he should be ready to go for Buffalo's season opener.

He had 44 receptions for 827 yards and nine touchdowns last season. For his career, he has 125 catches for 2,029 yards and fifteen scores.

Lawson aggravated an upper body injury during a workout while working out recently. He is expected to miss at least the first month of the regular season.

Last season, Lawson had 86 tackles, 25.5 tackles for loss (led the nation), 12.5 sacks and 15 quarterback hurries.

After the season, 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.
