Finally, some good news regarding injuries for Cowboys fans!

Veteran defensive lineman Tyrone Crawford's recovery from an ankle injury is coming along nicely, and he's likely to be ready for the start of the regular season.

The 27-year-old pass rusher signed a five-year, $45 million contract extension in 2015, but has had to undergo two shoulder surgeries in two years. He started training camp healthy but had to be carted off of the practice field earlier in August. 

Fortunately, his rolled ankle should be fully healed by the Cowboys season opener against the New York Giants on September 10th.

It's a good thing too, because with the suspensions to Randy Gregory (1-year), David Irving (4 games) and Damontre Moore (2 games), the defensive line was starting to look a little thin.

Crawford played in 14 games last season, making 16 tackles, 28 combined, and nabbed 4.5 sacks.
