Tyrone Crawford‘s injury looked worse than it was as the defensive lineman escaped serious injury.

The preliminary diagnosis on Crawford’s injured right ankle is a lateral sprain, according to sources. It was the best possible news for the Cowboys since it is not a long-term injury.

The Cowboys feared Crawford fractured his ankle after he collided with Ezekiel Elliott in practice Tuesday, with executive vice president Stephen Jones calling the injury a “scary one.”

Dallas, which had 36 sacks last season, already has three defensive linemen suspended for the start of the season.

Crawford has played both end and tackle for the Cowboys but played mostly left end last season when he made 28 tackles and 4.5 sacks.

  1. Why is the first mention of Crawford being carted off the field the top story on the page but the follow up story, ya know the one people (especially Cowboy fans) really wanna see, not up in it’s place as the top story or anywhere near the top? Not criticizing just curious. Since y’all have just made changes to the page, which I like btw, why not change that too? Having a follow up to a top story posted in the mix of essentially not most important stories, for lack of a better term, is misleading. Especially when the preceding story is still the top story after the follow up has been posted. Why not remove the original story from the list of featured stories or at least put the follow up above the original. Just sayin.
