OXNARD, Calif. – Defensive tackle Tyrone Crawford will not participate in Monday's first padded practice due to a sore back, head coach Jason Garrett said.
Crawford also sat out Sunday's practice and had an MRI on his back, though it's not believed to be serious. He has dealt with the back flaring up before, Garrett said.
"We'll take his situation day-by-day," Garrett said.
Crawford had shoulder surgery in January following the 2015 season. Starting all 16 games, he had a career-high 44 tackles and finished third on defense with a career-high five sacks to go along with 27 quarterback pressures.
The Cowboys are a little thin at defensive tackle at the moment, with rookie defensive tackle Maliek Collins currently on Active/PUP following foot surgery at the end of May.
