Bills' LB Lawson excused from practice
ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (AP)
Bills coach Doug Marrone says Lawson was excused for personal reasons.
The eight-year veteran has been a dependable starter for the Bills this year, recording 43 tackles, one sack and a forced fumble.
As expected, quarterback EJ Manuel will return against the Steelers after missing the past four games with a knee injury. Wide receiver Robert Woods (ankle) is doubtful, but will make the trip to Pittsburgh.
