Cowboys DL Tyrone Crawford admits he's experienced more soreness than expected in his return from a torn Achilles' tendon, but claims he's "completely healed."
"It’s still sore, but that’s getting used to being at practice," Crawford said. "I’m just going to get through OTAs. ... Hopefully I feel good by training camp." The Cowboys' embarrassingly thin defensive line can ill afford a setback from Crawford, who's expected to see snaps both at three-technique and left end. Jun 3 - 6:31 PM

Cowboys DL Tyrone Crawford (Achilles') participated on the first day of OTAs Tuesday.

Crawford practiced at left defensive end initially, but the Cowboys see him as primarily a three technique, competing for snaps with injured Henry Melton. The Cowboys are dangerously weak throughout the front seven. A big year from Crawford would go a long way toward stabilizing the defensive line.

Cowboys DL Tyrone Crawford (Achilles') said he's still trying to get back to 100 percent.

Crawford tore his Achilles' on the first day of training camp last summer. He's been taking part in offseason workouts but admits there's still " a lot of pain sometimes." Crawford is expected to see snaps inside and outside for Dallas at three-technique and left end, behind starters Henry Melton and George Selvie.

Cowboys DL Tyrone Crawford (Achilles) is expected to be ready for OTAs.

Crawford missed all of 2013 on injured reserve. He's eight months removed from his torn Achilles' tendon and on track for offseason workouts. As long as he stays healthy, Crawford should see regular snaps as part of the Cowboys' defensive line rotation.

Coach Jason Garrett said DL Tyrone Crawford has recovered from his torn Achilles' tendon.

Crawford tore his heel on the first day of 2013 training camp. The 2012 third-rounder would be eased back into the mix on most teams, but the Cowboys are absolutely desperate for bodies on the defensive line. Crawford is going to play a ton as a versatile piece capable of lining up at both tackle and end.
Mar 27 - 8:38 AM

The Cowboys are "confident" DL Tyrone Crawford can be a "key cog" in their 2014 defense despite his 2013 Achilles' tendon tear.

Crawford is expected to be healthy by training camp, but this may be wishful thinking and typical hoping by a Cowboys organization with precious little cap space and very little margin for error. Crawford has appeared in 16 career games, registering zero sacks. For now, he's penciled in as a 2014 starter.

Cowboys placed DE Tyrone Crawford on injured reserve with a torn Achilles' tendon, ending his season.

Crawford went down on the first day of camp. The 2012 third-round pick was expected to be a core run-stopping rotational end behind Anthony Spencer and DeMarcus Ware. The Cowboys' run defense looks like one to target for fantasy matchup purposes. Crawford, 23, will return to compete for a roster spot in 2014.

Cowboys DE Tyrone Crawford suffered a torn Achilles' on the first day of training camp and will miss the entire 2013 season.

The 81st pick in the 2012 draft, Crawford was markered in as Dallas' No. 3 end behind DeMarcus Ware and Anthony Spencer. At 6-foot-4, 275, he was easily the Cowboys' biggest defensive end, and coming off a promising rookie year as a run stopper. As we've noted repeatedly, Dallas' run defense is shaping up as suspect on paper with one of the smallest front sevens in football. And after years of poor drafting, the Cowboys' depth is in rapid decline. The Crawford injury is a sizable blow to a team whose arrow was already pointing down.

Cowboys 2012 third-round DE Tyrone Crawford was carted off the field on the first day of training camp Sunday with a potentially serious Achilles' injury.

He fell awkwardly during a tackling-dummy drill. As the cart approached, Crawford was "holding his head" in agony. Beat reporter Todd Archer compared the injury to LB Caleb McSurdy's last summer, which was a torn Achilles' tendon. Crawford was expected to be a key depth piece at defensive end and tackle.

According to ESPN Dallas, there has been a "lot of good buzz" around second-year Cowboys DL Tyrone Crawford.

Crawford leads ESPN Dallas' list of "under-the-radar Cowboys" who could make a "significant impact" this season. Reporter Tim MacMahon expects Crawford to serve as Anthony Spencer's backup at left end, and to get snaps at both interior spots. Crawford was most effective from the edge in college. He played 303 snaps as a rookie, failing to generate a sack.

Tyrone Crawford is playing defensive end in the Cowboys' new 4-3 alignment.

In Rob Ryan's 3-4, Crawford bulked up and played on the inside against guards. Now, he's slimmed down to 285 pounds and will rush the passer from the edge. It's the same position Crawford played at Boise State, when he racked up 13.5 sacks and 27 tackles for a loss over his two seasons.

Third-round DE Tyrone Crawford is drawing rave reviews in Cowboys camp.

"We may have hit big on him," executive VP Stephen Jones said. The former Boise State standout is over a recent calf strain and pushing Marcus Spears for reps. Crawford figures to work behind Spears and Jason Hatcher as a situational pass rusher for most of his rookie season.

Cowboys signed No. 81 overall pick DE Tyrone Crawford to a four-year contract.

The Boise State star racked up 11 sacks and 13.5 tackles for a loss as a senior before being diagnosed with a heart murmur at the Combine. A future pocket-pusher at defensive end, Crawford has missed recent practices with a calf strain.

Cowboys selected Boise State DE Tyrone Crawford with the No. 81 overall pick in the 2012 NFL draft.

Crawford goes 6-foot-4 and 275 pounds, and with nearly 34-inch arms he will be a defensive end in Dallas' 3-4 scheme, likely competing for time on the weak side of the formation. After transferring from JUCO, Crawford spent two seasons at Boise and collected 27 tackles for loss to go with 13.5 sacks, four forced fumbles, and two blocked kicks. He can push the pocket.
