Dallas Cowboys starting defensive end Tyrone Crawford is getting better and better when it comes to his nagging ankle injury suffered during training camp.

Per DallasCowboys.com, he "returned to practice last week and ended up logging 23 snaps in the Cowboys’ 19-3 win over the Giants."

"Crawford tallied two tackles against the Giants, working mostly at left end. His presence added necessary depth to the line rotation with Damontre’ Moore (two games) and David Irving (four games) suspended."

"Crawford missed the entire preseason due to the ankle injury and worked hard on his rehab with the athletic training staff. He knew he’d be “a little rusty” in his return."

“Felt a lot better than I expected it to going into the game,” he said. “I’m just working on getting my ankle right and everything. It’s a work in progress; I know that. I know how injuries go.”

Crawford, 27, is entering his fifth NFL season, all with the Cowboys. He's racked up 12.5 sacks over that time.
