As expected, Crawford (ankle) was able to fully participate in Wednesday's practice. Crawford suffered a lateral sprain early on in camp, which subsequently sidelined him for a few weeks. However, the team was hopeful he would be available for Week 1, and barring any setbacks, he is seemingly in line to start at defensive end Sunday night.
Crawford (ankle) likely will be ready for Sunday's game against the Giants, Rob Phillips of the Cowboys' official site reports. Crawford's return is important for the Cowboys since defensive tackle David Irving (suspension) won't be available for the first game. Heading into his sixth season, Crawford is expected to be a force as an edge rusher across from DeMarcus Lawrence.
Crawford (ankle) is no longer using a walking boot, Rob Phillips of the Cowboys' official site reports. Crawford still isn't practicing, but being out of the boot is certainly a step in the right direction. There's no clear timetable for Crawford's return, so his status for Week 1 remains cloudy.
Crawford was carted off the practice field with a leg injury on Tuesday, Jon Machota of The Dallas Morning News reports. Crawford was seen with a trainer holding down his right leg as he was carted off the field Tuesday. Though the team has yet to comment on the specifics of his injury, it appears as though it may be serious. It's unclear how long he'll be out at this point. For the time being, expect Taco Charlton to see some time with the starting defense while Crawford recovers.
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, then came back in 2016 showing no signs of injury. 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.
