Crawford has been diagnosed with a lateral ankle sprain, Todd Archer of ESPN reports.
Crawford was carted off the field during Tuesday's practice, but a subsequent X-ray has cleared him of any sort of break. That said, there's a chance the Cowboys hold him out for the entire preseason to make sure he's 100 percent healthy for the opener, so it will be a situation to monitor over the next month or so. For now, Crawford remains without any sort of timetable for a return.
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 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.
