Tyrone Crawford will undergo surgery Thursday to repair a torn rotator cuff in his right shoulder, ESPN Dallas reports.
He played through the shoulder injury in the second half and Crawford was something of a disappointment after signing a big contract last offseason, finishing 2015 with 35 tackles including five sacks. If he can stay healthy next year, he still has a chance to develop into a disruptive inside force on the Dallas Cowboys ' defensive line.
Tyrone Crawford recorded five tackles, including his fourth sack of the season, in Thursday's loss to the Panthers.
He also blocked a late field goal attempt after the game was well out of reach for the Dallas Cowboys . Crawford has been very hit or miss this season, and was held out of the box score entirely the week before against Miami, making him a marginal IDP play at best.
Crawford, who broke the news Saturday with a tweeted photo of himself signing the deal, enjoyed his finest season in 2014 by contributing to 33 tackles and recording three sacks.
The tackle has shown the organization "everything we need to see to know that he can be one of the elite tackles in this league," said Cowboys executive vice president Stephen Jones.
