Old Dominion senior RB Ray Lawry (hamstring) rushed for 40 yards on 14 carries in Saturday's 35-3 loss to Marshall.
Lawry didn't go off for big numbers on Saturday, but that he was playing at all is a story in itself. The senior back had been thought to be lost for the season due to a reported torn hamstring suffered early in the season. Clearly, the injury was not quite as severe as initially expected. Lawry rushed for 1,255 yards and 11 touchdowns last season. Just how much work he'll receive in the second half of the campaign remains to be seen -- we expect Old Dominion to ease him back into action. Oct 14 - 5:32 PM

Old Dominion senior RB Ray Lawry (hamstring) is warming up in advance of Saturday's game against Marshall.

Lawry has come storming back from a reported torn hamstring sustained in September. Remarkably, he returned to practice this week and looks like he will play versus Marshall on Saturday barring a late setback. He'll split carries with Jeremy Cox if he can, indeed, play. Don't be surprised if the Monarchs limit his workload.

Old Dominion senior RB Ray Lawry (hamstring) is set to return on Saturday against Marshall.

This is a an amazing comeback for Lawry (5'10/204). Just a week ago, it was feared that he was done as a player for the Monarchs, with the possibility of him taking a medical redshirt. To go from that to suiting up against the Thundering Herd is a giant leap. Don't be surprised if Old Dominion limits the touches for Lawry in his first game back, but it's tremendous to see the talented tailback will be back in uniform in 2017.

Old Dominion senior RB Ray Lawry (hamstring) returned to practice on Sunday, and has a chance to play on Saturday against Marshall.

Lawry (5'10/204) was reported to have torn his hamstring in mid-September, and it was believed that he would miss the rest of the season. In his place, junior RB Jeremy Cox has performed at an adequate level, but he's not the dynamic playmaker that Lawry is. His return would go a long way in helping the Monarchs make a second-straight bowl game.

Draft Insider's Tony Pauline reports that he's heard that Old Dominion senior RB Ray Lawry (hamstring) could return for the final few weeks of this season.

It was reported two weeks ago that Lawry would miss the remainder of the season with a torn hamstring. "Initial expectations were that Lawry would be sidelined for the rest of the season, but lately there’s a feeling he could return during the final few weeks," Pauline wrote. "If he’s unable to make it back on the field, I’m told it’s not a certainty Lawry enters the draft and that he could apply for another season at ODU." If Lawry stays shut down, he's nearly a slam-dunk to be awarded a medical hardship waiver by the NCAA. Lawry rushed for 1,255 yards and 11 touchdowns last season.

Old Dominion senior RB Ray Lawry is expected to miss the remainder of the season due to a torn hamstring.

Lawry (5'10/204) struggled with a hamstring injury at the end of preseason camp, took five carries in the opener and has not played since. Turns out this was not just a run-of-the-mill hamstring strain or tweak, as -- barring a rapid comeback -- it looks as though the senior back has been lost for the season. It's a brutal blow for the Monarchs given that Lawry rushed for 1,255 yards and 11 touchdowns last season. Jeremy Cox is expected to work as starter for the remainder of the campaign.
Sep 19 - 6:38 PM

Old Dominion senior RB Ray Lawry (hamstring) will not play in Saturday's game against North Carolina.

Lawry was listed as probable during the practice week, but the Monarchs have opted to rest him once again. He has taken just five carries this season -- all in the opener -- due to a nagging hamstring injury. With Lawry ruled out, Jeremy Cox will work as ODU's lead back against the Tar Heels.
Sep 16 - 3:27 PM

Old Dominion senior RB Ray Lawry (hamstring) is probable for Saturday's game against North Carolina.

Lawry (5'10/204) has yet to take on a full workload in a game this season due to a nagging hamstring injury which has been bothering him since the end of August. He received just five carries in the opener -- retweaking the hamstring in the process -- and sat out this past Saturday's contest against UMass (though he did warm up before the game). Lawry's a supremely productive back when healthy, having rushed for 1,255 yards and 11 touchdowns last season. Jeremy Cox will return to backup duties behind the senior if he is able to give it a go against the Tar Heels on Saturday.
Sep 14 - 6:03 PM

Old Dominion senior RB Ray Lawry (hamstring) will not play in Saturday's game against UMass.

Lawry warmed up prior to the game, but was not feeling 100% and will not play in the contest. With the star senior back no longer an option, the Monarchs figure to turn to Jeremy Cox for an extended workload.
Sep 9 - 3:50 PM

Old Dominion senior RB Ray Lawry (hamstring) is warming up in advance of Saturday's game against UMass.

Lawry was dealing with a hamstring injury in preseason camp and received just five carries in the team's opener due to his possibly tweaking the hammy again. If he is unable to give it a go against the Minutemen on Saturday, Jeremy Cox will receive the lion's share of work.
Sep 9 - 3:00 PM

Old Dominion Senior RB Ray Lawry (hamstring) will be a game-time decision when the Monarchs take on UMass on Saturday.

Lawry (5'10/203) has battled the hamstring issue all preseason, and while he did have a 41-yard touchdown in the opener against Albany, he was unable to get anything else going outside of that run. He ran for 1,255 yards and 11 touchdowns last year, and he'd be a big loss for the Monarchs' offense if he can't go. Junior running back Jeremy Cox should get the bulk of the carries if he's unable to go.
Sep 7 - 8:52 PM

Old Dominion senior RB Ray Lawry (hamstring) rushed for 44 yards and a touchdown on five carries in Saturday's 31-17 win over Albany.

Lawry bolted for a 41-yard touchdown out of the gates, but played sparingly after that point. He was dealing with a hamstring injury during preseason camp and Harry Minium of the Virginia-Pilot tweeted out during Saturday's game that he might have tweaked that hamstring once more in this contest. Expect updates on his health and status during the coming days. Lawry rushed for 1,255 yards and 11 touchdowns last season.
Sep 2 - 9:25 PM

Old Dominion senior RB Ray Lawry (hamstring) is expected to start Saturday's opener against Albany.

Lawry has been working his way through a hamstring injury suffered in a mid-August scrimmage. Looking good to go, now. He rushed for 1,255 yards (6.3 YPC) and 11 touchdowns last season.
Sep 2 - 4:20 PM

Old Dominion senior RB Ray Lawry has been out of practice since Saturday due to a hamstring injury.

Lawry injured his hamstring while bursting out for a 44-yard run during Saturday's scrimmage. Old Dominion has since been resting him as a precautionary measure. This past season, the 5-foot-10, 204-pounder rushed for 1,255 yards (6.3 YPC) and 11 touchdowns.
Aug 16 - 12:44 PM

Sports on Earth's Matt Brown notes that Old Dominion senior RB Ray Lawry possesses "burst and shiftiness in the open field."

Lawry (5'10/204) helped lead the Monarchs to a 10-2 regular season record before capping off his campaign with a 133-yard performance in a bowl win -- the first in school history -- over Eastern Michigan just before Christmas. For the year as a whole, Lawry rushed for 1,255 yards (6.3 YPC) and 11 touchdowns. He has surpassed 1,000 yards on the ground in each of the past two seasons. Brown ranks him as the No. 30 running back in college football.
