Cowboys Activate DE Demarcus Lawrence, DT Tyrone Crawford From PUP


The Cowboys activated DE Demarcus Lawrence and DT Tyrone Crawford from the PUP list on Tuesday. Both players participated in individual drills. 

Lawrence is working his way back from offseason shoulder surgery he delayed until he had a long-term extension in place with Dallas. He’s aiming to be ready to play by Week 1.

Lawrence, 26, is a former second-round pick by the Cowboys in the 2014 NFL Draft out of Boise State. He finished a four-year rookie contract before the Cowboys used their franchise tag last year. 

Dallas once again franchised Lawrence at the start of 2019 before agreeing on a five-year, $105 million deal this offseason. 

In 2018, Lawrence appeared in all 16 games for the Cowboys and recorded 64 tackles, 10.5 sacks, an interception, two forced fumbles, a recovery and a pass defense. Pro Football Focus has him rated as the No. 9 overall edge defender out of 103 qualifying players.

Crawford, 29, is a former third-round pick of the Cowboys back in 2012. He’s is in the fifth year of his six-year, $45.675 million contract that included $17.425 million guaranteed and stands to make base salaries of $7 million and $8 million over the final two years of the agreement.

In 2018, Crawford appeared in 15 games for the Cowboys and recorded 34 tackles, 5.5 sacks, one forced fumble and two pass defenses.
