Reports: Tyrone Crawford has sprained ankle, will be ready for Week 1
The early news on Tyrone Crawford seems to be fairly encouraging.
Crawford was carted off the field on Tuesday at Dallas Cowboys camp in Oxnard with what appeared to be an ankle injury sustained while making a play on Ezekiel Elliott.
For now, two team reporters say Crawford has a lateral ankle sprain.

Both reporters also say Crawford will be ready for the start of the season. That’s big for the Cowboys their issues along the defensive line. They’re already going to begin the season short-handed following David Irving’s suspension, so they didn’t want to lose Crawford for too much time.
Crawford, 27, missed two games last season, and then all of 2013 because of a torn Achilles’ tendon.
