Tyrone Crawford says his recovery from offseason shoulder surgery is going well, David Helman of Dallas Dallas Cowboys .com reports. "It's extremely helpful to just have the strength back that I didn't have last year," Crawford said Friday. "I'm back up to almost where I was before the injury. I'm feeling real good. I'm feeling confident about it as well."
He also said he's prepared to move to defensive end for the first month of the season to cover for suspensions to Randy Gregory and DeMarcus Lawrence, a position he has played in the past before moving to the three-technique DT spot in coordinator Rod Marinelli's defense. "I'm going to do what I have to do. It's definitely a possibility if needed," Crawford said. "We can't have guys taking on such a big role they haven't taken on before, so it's all of us working together helping each other out." If Crawford does see significant snaps at DE over the first four weeks, he could be sneaky source of sacks in deep IDP leagues.
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.
