Crawford (biceps) is scheduled to undergo season-ending surgery, Vaughn McClure of ESPN reports.

EDGE Analysis

Undergoing season-ending surgery means Crawford now has no chance of being activated from injured reserve at any point this season. The Falcons reportedly worked out a slew of defensive linemen Tuesday, so don't be surprised if the team adds depth to the position group in the near future.

Crawford (bicep) was placed on injured reserve Tuesday, Kelsey Conway of the Falcons' official site reports.

EDGE Analysis

After D. Orlando Ledbetter of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported Monday that the team was "planning on moving forward without" Crawford, his placement on injured reserve doesn't come as much of a surprise. With Crawford likely done for the year, Joe Vellano is in line to serve as the primary reserve defensive tackle.

Crawford (bicep) is expected to be out indefinitely, D. Orlando Ledbetter of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

EDGE Analysis

The belief is that Crawford suffered a torn bicep in Sunday's loss to the Bills, but Vaughn McClure of ESPN.com reported that the lineman will be undergoing an MRI to confirm. With Crawford out, Joe Vellano will be the lone backup defensive tackle who is healthy.

Crawford (groin) returned to the field in the Falcons exhibition loss to the Steelers on Sunday,

EDGE Analysis

Crawford inked a three-year, $10.3 million contract with the Falcons during the offseason. His start to camp has been slow due to a groin strain, but he was able to see 17 snaps in Falcons' Week 2 loss. The 28-year-old is trying to solidify a role on the team's defensive line, so his return will be advantageous for his chances.

Crawford was held out of Monday's practice due to a groin strain, Vaughn McClure of ESPN.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Crawford picked up the injury in Sunday's practice. It's believed that Crawford's absence was precautionary, so the injury shouldn't hinder him too much in his preparation for his first season with the Falcons. The 28-year-old inked a three-year, $10.3 million contract with Atlanta in March after accruing 25 tackles and 3.5 sacks in 16 games with Dallas in 2016.
