Cowboys DL Tyrone Crawford expected to be ready for OTAs


The Dallas Cowboys defensive line was ravaged with injuries last season. Amongst those who were injured was Tyrone Crawford, who missed all of the 2013 season on injured reserve with an Achilles injury. The Cowboys could certainly use him in 2014 with the departures of DeMarcus Ware, Jason Hatcher and most likely Anthony Spencer who is still a free agent.

During a Q&A session with fans, Todd Archer of ESPN Dallas gave an update on Crawford’s status and roll in the offense.

“Everything I’ve heard about Crawford says he’ll be fine for the offseason program,” Archer said. “He’s a key piece to this defense this year. He has to play well.”

Tim MacMahon, also of ESPN Dallas, said back in January that Crawford can be a “key cog” in the Cowboys defense.

“They’re confident Tyrone Crawford, who spent his second NFL season on injured reserve after tearing his Achilles tendon during this summer’s training camp, can be a key cog at end or tackle.”
