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.
Crawford (biceps) is expected back by training camp, D. Orlando Ledbetter of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports. Crawford tore his biceps and is hopeful to return for Offseason Team Activities. However, even if his recovery takes longer than anticipated, he'll be back to full participation in time for training camp.
Crawford (biceps) is expected to be ready in time for OTAs, Matthew Tabeek of the Falcons' official site reports. Crawford landed on injured reserve after undergoing surgery to repair a torn biceps he suffered in Week 4. Fortunately, it doesn't sound like the 29-year-old will miss any part of the offseason program as he enters the second season of this three-year contract.
Crawford sustained a bicep injury and did not return to Sunday's loss to the Bills, Kelsey Conway of the Falcons' official site reports. Crawford recorded two tackles (both solo) prior to leaving with the injury. There's no word on the severity of the injury at this point, but he was ruled out fairly soon after exiting.
Crawford (groin) returned to the field in the Falcons' exhibition loss to the Steelers on Sunday, Crawford inked a three-year, $10.3 million contract with the Falcons during the offseason. His start to camp has been slow due to a groin strain, but he was able to see 17 snaps in the loss. The 28-year-old is trying to solidify a role on the team's defensive line, so his return will be advantageous for his chances.
