FLORHAM PARK (N.J.) — Nine months after Achilles surgery. New York Jets defensive end Carl LawsonHe won't be able to participate in OTA practice this month but he anticipates being on the field for training camp in July.

Lawson stated Wednesday that he thinks he'll be ready to go. However, it is up to the organization how they play it, what they want from me, and other factors.

He was done before the season started. Without him, the defense was unable to compete. They finished 32nd in yards allowed, 32nd scoring, and 26th in sacks.
