Cowboys' Tyrone Crawford recovered from hip surgery

Dallas Cowboys defensive lineman Tyrone Crawford is "feeling great" following operations on both of his hips.

What It Means:

"Obviously, double hip surgery is nothing to play around with," Crawford said. "But I'm feeling awesome, ready to go." Crawford was limited to just 90 defensive snaps in four games last season. He's been battling hip issues for years but had played at least 600 snaps each of the previous five seasons. Crawford is expected to compete with Randy Gregory for the starting right defensive end job. He recorded a career-high 5.5 sacks with 4 tackles for loss and 12 quarterback hits in 2018.

Crawford graded 81.5 overall defensively in 2017 and 71.0 in 2018 before succumbing to his lingering hip issues last season. He recorded a sack in the season opener but finished the season with just 3 tackles.
