Crawford (shoulder) is expected to return from offseason surgery in time for training camp, Kate Hairopoulos of The Dallas Morning News reports.
Crawford missed only two games in 2016, but the shoulder issue may have impacted his effectiveness, as he saw his tackle total dip slightly from the season before. With better health in 2017, Crawford could make a greater impact as an edge rusher after compiling 4.5 sacks a season ago.
Crawford (shoulder) is confident he can bounce back from shoulder surgery in 2017, the Star-Telegram reports.
Crawford, who underwent a procedure on his left shoulder in January, required surgery to repair a torn rotator cuff in his right arm after the 2015 season and came back in 2016 showing no signs of injury. Now having been through the rehab process for shoulder surgery before, the Boise State product is confident he will return in 2017 without an issue. He's less certain where he'll be lining up, however, considering the recent departure of Terrell McClain opens up the door for him to move back inside to defensive tackle.
Crawford underwent shoulder surgery on Thursday, Clarence E. Hill Jr. of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports.
Crawford had surgery on his right rotator cuff last offseason and had surgery on his left shoulder Thursday. He dealt with shoulder, back, and hamstring injuries throughout the year but he's expected to be recovered in time for offseason practices.
Crawford (shoulder) is listed as active for Sunday's playoff game against the Packers, ESPN's Todd Archer reports.
Crawford is thus slated to return to action following a two-game absence. He figures to move back into his starting role at defensive end, an assignment that gave him a modest degree of IDP utility in 2016. Crawford finished up the season with 28 tackles and 4.5 sacks in 14 games.
Crawford (shoulder) is questionable to play in Sunday's playoff game against the Packers.
Despite limited participation in practice throughout the week, Crawford is expected to suit up. In such an event, he'll likely reclaim his starting role at defensive end, forcing Jack Crawford into a reserve role.
