No news is good news as Shaq Lawson prepares for possible punishment

Sports

Bills defensive end Shaq Lawson admits he is waiting to hear he’s received additional punishment from the NFL for his involvement in a brawl during Sunday’s win over the Jaguars.

“I’ve been looking every day. I’ll keep looking until 5:00pm and then still look tomorrow,” said Lawson after practice on Wednesday. “I guess they viewed the tape and understand where I’m coming from.”

Lawson was ejected along with Jaguars running back Leonard Fournette, who later received a 1-game suspension from the league.

Lawson has yet to hear a peep from the NFL.

“I keep looking on TV and see it every time,” said Lawson. “I was sleeping one day and I heard it and I’m like ‘Hey, they’re talking about me on TV,’ but it’s old, it’s squashed.”

Lawson and Fournette yelled at each other several times during the Bills win over the Jaguars on Sunday. The brawl began after a disputed catch resulted in pushing and shoving. Lawson, who was on the field for the play, got involved. Fournette ran in from the sideline and punched Lawson, who responded with his own punches for the Jags playmaker.

“I know y’all ain’t going to let somebody hit y’all and don’t do nothing back, especially when they’re coming for you and you didn’t start nothing,” said Lawson to the media.

The two were also spotted screaming at each other by network television cameras as they were led off the field. Lawson says he has already put the fight behind him.

“We’re getting ready for Miami,” said Lawson. “It’s completely over. I’m looking forward to finishing the rest of the season and focusing on our opponent, Miami.”

Whether Lawson plays or not, the Bills will compete for their third straight win this coming Sunday in Miami against the Dolphins.
