Rapoport adds that Lawrence broke the fifth metatarsal in his foot and will need surgery. However, if all goes well, Rapoport says he should be back in November.
Lawrence, 29, is a former second-round pick by the Cowboys in the 2014 NFL Draft out of Boise State. He finished a four-year rookie contract before the Cowboys used their franchise tag.
Dallas once again franchised Lawrence at the start of 2019 before agreeing on a five-year, $105 million deal last year. He was placed on the Physically Unable to Perform list in July but was activated last month and played in Week 1.
In 2021, Lawrence has appeared in one game for the Cowboys and recorded five tackles, no sacks and a forced fumble.
