Bad News Bills
Buffalo Bills fans got some bad news yesterday evening regarding two of their high-profile players. Reports surfaced that Bills rookie and 19th overall selection Shaq Lawson would need surgery after aggravating his shoulder injury this past week while doing drills at Bills rookie mini-camp.
"The Buffalo Bills are taking measures to prevent the possibility of Shaq Lawson aggravating a preexisting shoulder condition during the season," the team said in a statement. "While he could continue to play, the Bills medical staff has determined that surgery is the best course of action for the overall health of his shoulder moving forward."
Lawson is expected to go under the knife today and is expected to be out 4-6 months as he recovers. Lawson will likely miss regular season games through October.
If that news wasn't bad enough, news came about that Sammy Watkins had surgery on a broken foot about three weeks ago. He is expected to be able to play in the regular season opener and perhaps even the pre-season.
