Shaq Lawson's shoulder surgery is complete and his recovery is officially underway.

A source tells 7 Eyewitness Sports Anchor Shawn Stepner Lawson's surgery was "very successful".  It was performed Tuesday morning in New York City.

On Monday the Bills announced that their first-round draft pick, No. 19 overall, needed surgery to his shoulder after an "occurrence" of a previous condition last week.

UPDATE:  A source tells Stepner that after today's surgery Shaq Lawson "should only miss about 4-5 regular season games."
