Despite Crawford avoiding serious injury, pass rush still concerns Cowboys

Despite Crawford avoiding serious injury, pass rush still concerns Cowboys

The Dallas Cowboys dodged a significant injury when Tyrone Crawford only sprained his ankle in Tuesdays practice. It appeared to be much worse initially given Crawfords reaction when he went to the turf, but hes expected to be ready by the season opener.

But it begged the question how solid the pass rush depth is on this team. The Cowboys have been desperate to improve their pass rush in recent years. They had 36 sacks a season ago, an improvement from their numbers in 2014 (28) and 2015 (31), but nowhere near as good as theyd like.

Thats why they used a first-round draft pick on Taco Charlton, although Charlton has gotten off to a slow start early in camp. Hes already heard the critics early in his pro career.

Im 22 years old, Charlton said. My life is great, so I dont care about them.

But the spotlight is only going to get brighter on Charlton with Crawford out for the coming days.

Defensive coordinator Rod Marinelli has seen promise with Charltons length and athleticism, and the hope is that Charlton flashes more with the additional reps coming his way.

Charlton is a guy who seems to get better with time.
