Shaq Lawson says he doesn’t need shoulder surgery

Former Clemson defensive end Shaq Lawson recently appeared on NFL Network and insisted that despite a report that yesterday stated his shoulder was redflagged at the NFL Scouting Combine last month, he himself does not need surgery.

“Definitely no surgery,” Lawson said. “… My shoulder’s fine. It’s something I’ve been playing with for three years, so I’m ready to go get (the recheck) over with and show them I won’t have a problem with it.”

Lawson then mentioned how the only team that requested a recheck of his shoulder, which will take place in Indianapolis next month, was the Jacksonville Jaguars.

Granted, Lawson did wear a brace on the affected shoulder last season, but he insists that it isn’t a problem and that the injury occurred his freshman year when his shoulder “popped out of place.”

That said, here’s hoping that Shaq Lawson’s recheck does indeed come back clean, as he has meetings and private workouts with the Carolina Panthers, Dallas Cowboys and San Francisco 49ers next month. He’s strong enough a pass-rusher that he could wind up being a Top 10 pick in next month’s NFL Draft, so stay tuned to Campus Sports for further updates on this story!
