Crawford finished the regular season with 27 tackles, including four sacks, and two passes defended in 16 games.
It's just the third time in his five-year career that Crawford has suited up for all 16 games. The defensive lineman remains a jack-of-all-trades for the Cowboys, bouncing between end and tackle as needed, but that role also limits his IDP upside -- he has only 16.5 career sacks, with a career high of five set in 2015.
Crawford logged a sack for the third consecutive game in Sunday's 33-19 win over the Redskins.
Crawford had three tackles (two solo) in the contest. His season tack total is now up to four, and he will look to carry that momentum into Week 9. The 28-year-old was on the field for 36 defensive snaps (61.0 percent), which should be about normal going forward.
Crawford had two solo tackles, one sack and one fumble recovery Sunday against the 49ers.
Crawford now has a sack in two consecutive games, giving him a season total of three. However, having only 10 tackles (seven solo) through six games keeps him from being a viable IDP option for the time being.
Crawford recorded his second sack of the season in Sunday's loss to the Packers.
Crawford only had one tackle in the contest, but he made it count by sacking Aaron Rodgers for an eight-yard loss early in the second quarter. The 27-year-old saw 37 snaps (62.0 percent) in the contest.
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.
