Crawford says his recovery from offseason shoulder surgery is going well, David Helman of DallasCowboys.com reports. "It's extremely helpful to just have the strength back that I didn't have last year," Crawford said Friday. "I'm back up to almost where I was before the injury. I'm feeling real good. I'm feeling confident about it as well."

He also said he's prepared to move to defensive end for the first month of the season to cover for suspensions to Randy Gregory and DeMarcus Lawrence, a position he has played in the past before moving to the three-technique DT spot in coordinator Rod Marinelli's defense. "I'm going to do what I have to do. It's definitely a possibility if needed," Crawford said. "We can't have guys taking on such a big role they haven't taken on before, so it's all of us working together helping each other out." If Crawford does see significant snaps at DE over the first four weeks, he could be sneaky source of sacks in deep IDP leagues.

Crawford will undergo surgery Thursday to repair a torn rotator cuff in his right shoulder, ESPN Dallas reports.

EDGE Analysis

He played through the shoulder injury in the second half and Crawford was something of a disappointment after signing a big contract last offseason, finishing 2015 with 35 tackles including five sacks. If he can stay healthy next year, he still has a chance to develop into a disruptive inside force on the Cowboys' defensive line.

Crawford recorded five tackles, including his fourth sack of the season, in Thursday's loss to the Panthers.

EDGE Analysis

He also blocked a late field goal attempt after the game was well out of reach for the Cowboys. Crawford has been very hit or miss this season, and was held out of the box score entirely the week before against Miami, making him a marginal IDP play at best.

Crawford picked up three tackles and the Cowboys' only sack in Sunday's comeback win over the Giants.

EDGE Analysis

He provided some immediate returns on the contract extension he signed just before Week 1. If he can keep getting penetration and pressure, Crawford could become a useful IDP play this season, as other three-technique DTs such as Warren Sapp have put up some great numbers in Rod Marinelli defenses in the past.

Crawford agreed to a five-year, $45 million contract extension with the Cowboys on Saturday, NFL.com's Ian Rapoport reports.

EDGE Analysis

Crawford did not post eye-popping stats last season, tallying 33 talkies and three sacks in 15 games, but he generated consistent pressure in the pocket, and is a player on the rise, so the Cowboys wanted to lock him up for several more seasons. He will be leaned on as the team's top defensive tackle moving forward.

Crawford picked up two sacks and two tackles during Sunday's win over the Eagles.

He's now got three tackles in his last three games, Crawford doesn't collect enough tackles to have much IDP value, but he's starting to add a little juice to the Cowboys' pass rush.

Crawford (knee) recorded three tackles, a forced fumble and his first career sack during Thursday's loss to the Eagles.

The switch to defensive tackle has worked out well for Crawford, but he remains an IDP afterthought.

Crawford (knee) is active for Sunday's game against the Giants, ESPN's Todd Archer reports.

Crawford is out there if you need him Sunday, but with 20 tackles in nine games to date, his IDP utility is limited.

Crawford (knee) is probable for Sunday's game against the Giants.

Crawford's return is good news for the Dallas defensive tackle rotation, but it's hard to see him making much of an IDP impact.
