Crawford (biceps) took part in positional drills during the Falcons' minicamp session Thursday, Kelsey Conway of the Falcons' official site reports.

A torn bicep cost Crawford the majority of the 2017 season, with the 29-year-old landing on injured reserve shortly after a Week 4 loss to Buffalo. Crawford's return to the practice field is a welcome sight, as the Falcons envision him serving as a key rotational player on the defensive line in 2018. Though he registered zero sacks and just five tackles on 101 defensive snaps in his first year in Atlanta ,Crawford was a solid contributor across 32 games with the Cowboys in 2015 and 2016, amassing 7.5 sacks and 46 tackles.
