McCarthy Updates Status Of Crawford, Awuzie


FRISCO, Texas – Defensive lineman Tyrone Crawford has not been cleared to practice yet after being placed on the Reserve/COVID-19 list last week, head coach Mike McCarthy said.

The list is for players who either test positive for COVID-19 or come in contact with someone who has. The NFL does not specify which.

Crawford, a regular part of the defensive line rotation, has eight tackles and ranks fourth on defense with nine quarterback pressures.

"I'm hopeful it's not too much longer, but I do not have an exact date," McCarthy said regarding a timetable for Crawford's return.

Elsewhere on the roster, McCarthy said cornerback Chidobe Awuzie is pointing toward a return to game action after being activated from Reserve/Injured last week.

Awuzie hurt his hamstring in Week 2 against Atlanta and hasn't made a game appearance since.

"He practiced today and he looks great, so I anticipate him being ready to go," McCarthy said.
