Dallas Cowboys defensive lineman Tyrone Crawford had surgery to both hips to repair a labrum tear. The injury was much more serious than initially thought.
Crawford plans on being back with the team in the spring and obviously play next season.
The injury limited Crawford this season to a part-time role. The team originally planned on having him rest and return but he ended up getting placed on injured reserve after being benched for two games.
Crawford, 30, has been pretty healthy throughout his career in Dallas. Last year, he started in all 15 of his games and had 5.5 sacks. He has one year remaining on a five-year contract extension he signed in 2015. His $8 million base salary next season will count for a $9.1 million cap hit in 2020.
