Crawford was let go by the Dolphins on Saturday, Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald reports.
Crawford was let go to make room for newly signed safety Montre Hartage. The rookie cornerback didn't make much of an impact in his month with Miami, appearing in only one game.
The Dolphins claimed Crawford off waivers Monday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.
Per Rapoport, the transaction won't go through until Tuesday since the Dolphins play Monday night, which rules out Crawford for the game. The rookie out of Central Michigan appeared in just four games for the Texans, playing 37 snaps, before he was cut Sunday. He'll likely serve as a depth secondary option for the Dolphins once the transaction is official.
The Texans cut Crawford from their active roster Saturday.
The 23-year-old hasn't made a difference with the Texans this season, suiting up in just four games, playing a total of 37 snaps in that span. Crawford will hope to latch on with another team elsewhere around the league, and his 53-man roster spot was replaced with fellow cornerback Cornell Armstrong.
Crawford (hamstring) had two assisted tackles in Saturday's preseason game at Dallas.
Crawford appeared to suffer the injury in the preseason opener and sat out the second contest, but he returned to play 34 defensive snaps Saturday. The rookie sixth-round pick is fighting for a depth role in the Texans' secondary.
Crawford didn't practice Monday due to a hamstring injury, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.
Crawford was limited to two special-teams snaps in the preseason opener and didn't play in Saturday's preseason game against the Lions. The 23-year-old was a sixth-round pick in April's draft and is fighting for a depth role in Houston's secondary.
The Texans selected Crawford in the sixth round of the 2019 NFL Draft, 195th overall.
Crawford (5-foot-11, 187 pounds) is less heralded than his former Central Michigan teammate Sean Bunting, who Tampa Bay selected in the second round, but Crawford is a promising prospect in his own right. He played a leading role in Central Michigan's smothering pass defense last year after transferring from Oregon State, where he earned a starting role as a redshirt freshman in 2016. Crawford might ideally play in the slot given his relatively slight frame, but he might have enough speed to contribute outside snaps after he was credited with a 4.37-second 40 at Central Michigan's pro day.
