  • Jaguars' Nevin Lawson: Fills stat sheet

    Lawson compiled four tackles (three solo), two passes defended and an interception in a 23-20 win over the Dolphins on Sunday.

    Lawson stepped into a big role for the first time since he joined the Jaguars after being let go by the Raiders earlier in the season. Playing 100 percent of the snaps with Tyson Campbell (toe) out, Lawson took advantage of his opportunity and made an impact. With Campbell's status up in the air heading into the Week 7 bye, it's hard to say whether Lawson will continue to enjoy as prominent a role in Week 8 against the Seahawks.

  • Raiders' Nevin Lawson: Will be unavailable for TNF

    Lawson (illness) is inactive for Thursday's matchup game the Chargers.

    After earning his eighth start of the 2020 campaign Week 14 against the Colts, Lawson popped up on the injury report Wednesday with a reported illness. It's since been confirmed that the issue is serious enough to hand Lawson his second absence of the season, thrusting Isaiah Johnson into a more integral role at cornerback. With Damon Arnette and Johnathan Abram both inactive due to concussions, plus Jeff Heath (concussion) residing on IR, the Raiders' secondary is hurting heading into Thursday night's matchup.

  • Raiders' Nevin Lawson: Questionable for TNF

    Lawson (illness) is questionable for Thursday's game versus the Chargers, Paul Gutierrez of reports.

    Lawson missed Wednesday's practice after falling ill. He hasn't tested positive for COVID-19, but his status for Thursday's game remains in question. With cornerback Damon Arnette (concussion/neck) and safety Johnathan Abram (concussion/knee) ruled out already, the Raiders' secondary could be in tough shape if Lawson sits out, too. Amik Robertson, Isaiah Johnson and Daryl Worley are candidates to start in Lawson's place if he's inactive.
