Carl Lawson thought he had a sack during his Bengals’ win over the Browns on Sunday. But he didn’t, as Cleveland quarterback DeShone Kizer got the ball away in time. And that wasn’t the only thing negative that happened on that particular play.
Lawson, a former Auburn standout, also lost a pair of teeth.
“When I’m bringing him down, I see my teeth just in the air,” Lawson said, per Jim Owczarski of the Cincinnati Enquirer. “I’m like, ‘Oh crap.'”
Lawson, who said he doesn’t wear a mouthpiece during games, added he wouldn’t know how his teeth would be fixed until the team returned to Cincinnati after Sunday’s road game.
“It didn’t hurt,” Lawson said, according to Owczarski. “I just saw my teeth in the air.”
Lawson has 2 1/2 sacks and four tackles through the first four games of his rookie season. He was drafted by Cincinnati in the fourth round of the 2017 NFL Draft. Lawson had 35 tackles and 14 1/2 sacks during his three seasons at Auburn.
