Cowboys’ Lawrence and Crawford Have Surgeries

via The Sports Xchange

Dallas Cowboys defensive ends Demarcus Lawrence and Tyrone Crawford underwent surgeries, coach Jason Garrett told reporters Friday. 
Lawrence underwent back surgery for the second consecutive offseason. Crawford underwent surgery on his right shoulder. 
“The medical people said the surgeries went well and they’re ready to have a full recovery,” Garrett said. 
No timetable was given for their returns. 
Lawrence dealt with back issues most of the season. He played in just nine games, missing three due to injury and sitting out the first four while serving a suspension for violating the NFL’s substance-abuse policy. 
Lawrence had just one sack in 2016 after posting a career-high eight the previous season. 
Crawford injured his rotator cuff in the second game of the season and played through the pain. He was held out of the final two games of the regular season before playing in the divisional playoff loss to the Green Bay Packers. 
Crawford posted 4.5 sacks this season, just shy of the career-best five he recorded in 2015.
