ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. -- Buffalo Bills rookie linebacker Shaq Lawson will miss at least the first six weeks of the regular season.The Bills placed their first-round draft pick on the reserve/physically unable to perform list Tuesday as part of a series of moves trim their roster to the NFL-maximum 75 players. Lawson only began working out on his own two weeks ago since having shoulder surgery in May to repair an injury that nagged him at Clemson.The designation means the pass-rushing specialist must sit out the first six weeks of the season before he can begin practicing. The Bills would then have five weeks to determine whether to activate him or place him on the season-ending injured/reserve list.Veteran receiver Marcus Easley, who is still recuperating from a season-ending knee injury last year, was also placed on the same list as Lawson.Buffalo also added a player to address its pass-rushing and special teams depth by acquiring linebacker Lerentee McCray in trade with Green Bay. In exchange, the Bills gave up an undisclosed pick in the 2018 draft.At 6-foot-3 and 249 pounds, McCray spent his first two seasons with Denver before signing with Green Bay this past offseason. He was used mostly on special teams in 24 games with the Broncos.McCray became the odd man out in Green Bay in losing a backup job behind converted defensive lineman Datone Jones and Jayrone Elliott.In other moves, Buffalo released nine players, including receiver Greg Little and linebackers David Hawthorne and Eric Striker. The Bills signed Striker as an undrafted rookie free agent out of Oklahoma and after he gained attention by making an emotionally uplifting speech to his family and friends about not being selected.Striker tearfully thanked everyone for being with him through the draft process, and assured them he will persevere.Tight end Chris Gragg was one of three players placed on waived/injured, four days after he tore a ligament in his left knee in a 21-16 preseason loss at Washington. Cornerback Jonathan Dowling and offensive tackle Justin Renfrow were also waived/injured.The Bills also cut defensive tackles Alameda Taamu and Justin Zimmer, quarterback Austin Trainor, tight end Jimmay Mundine, center Robert Kugler and long-snapper Reid Ferguson. The Bills signed Trainor on Monday as insurance in the event a sore shoulder would prevent third-string quarterback Cardale Jones from playing in Buffalos preseason finale at Detroit on Thursday night.Rookie second-round pick, linebacker Reggie Ragland, was placed on reserve/injured three weeks after sustaining a season-ending knee injury. Rookie sixth-round pick, receiver Kolby Listenbee, was placed on the reserve/non-football injury list.

COLUMBUS, Ohio -- The Washington Capitals play the first of back-to-back games Tuesday as they take on the Columbus Blue Jackets at Nationwide Arena.The Capitals (9-4-1, 19 points) have lost two of their last three games and face a Columbus team that is 5-0-0 at home since Oct. 15.The Blue Jackets (7-4-2, 16 points) scored 10 goals against Montreal earlier this month and eight goals against St. Louis in their last game, with both of those games at home.Washingtons offense is ranked 16th in the NHL with 2.64 goals per game. The Blue Jackets are ranked 2nd in the league with 3.46 goals per game.In an effort to spark some offense from his team, Capitals head coach Barry Trotz made some line changes ahead of Tuesdays game with Columbus.One thing that resonates with me a lot is that you have to have a balance of will and skill, he told The Washington Post. Sometimes we forget that we need the will and the skill to work together. I made a lot of changes, even for my standards in some way, but at the same time, the players that have played well are going to move up and get an opportunity. You never know.The Capitals points leader is left winger Marcus Johansson, with seven goals and five assists for 12 points. He is followed by left winger Alex Ovechkin, with seven goals and four assists for 11 points.They are backstopped by goaltender Braden Holtby, with a record of 7-3-1 in 11 games. He has a 2.16 goals-against average and a .922 save percentage and sits 10th in the leaggue in save percentage (minimum 10 games played).ddddddddddddAlthough the Blue Jackets penalty-killing unit allowed four goals on five power-play opportunities in their last game, their power play still sits atop the NHL with a 33.3 power-play percentage. The Capitals convert 12.5 percent of their man-advantage opportunities and sit 24th in the league.Neither the players nor head coach John Tortorella left the arena happy after Saturdays 8-4 win over St. Louis, much of the discomfort due to their sloppy play.The team held an intense practice Monday, in order to keep them from becoming complacent despite a decent start to their season.Its been a struggle with our coverages because we dont initiate the contact and win the one-on-one battle and it allows (an opponent) to play (in our end) and brings in different kind of coverages, sometimes we have to switch, Tortorella said to the Columbus Dispatch.It causes too many problems when that initial battle isnt won and we havent won enough of those.Goaltender Sergei Bobrovsky is expected to make his 13th start in 14 games against the Capitals. He has a record of 7-4-1, with a 2.33 goals-against average and a .931 save percentage and sits 6th in save percentage in the NHL (minimum 10 games played).No lineup changes appear to be imminent for the Blue Jackets for Tuesdays game against the Capitals.
