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.
According to owner Jerry Jones, Crawford (shoulder) is expected to play Sunday against the Packers, Jon Machota of the Dallas Morning News reports.
Crawford missed Week 17's loss to the Eagles due to a shoulder aliment, but given the extra week off, the defensive tackle should be ready to return to the field this Sunday. Look for more updates to come throughout the practice week, as the Cowboys are dealing with several injuries on the defensive line.
