Tyrone Crawford – Defensive Line

Before the injury to Sean Lee this year, there was no more devastating injury in the early stages of organized team activities than the torn Achilles tendon suffered by Tyrone Crawford on the first day of training camp last season. He was lost for the entire year in a season that saw the defensive line decimated with injuries. Losing Crawford early on contributed greatly to the unit’s ineffectiveness in 2013.

Though Crawford is expected to be ready for full participation in training camp, he recently admitted that his repaired Achilles tendon felt weaker than he had expected. The team has to be praying that this issue will be a non-factor this season, as they badly need depth and production on the defensive line.

Crawford was thought to be a breakout candidate before his injury last season. If he can come back at full strength this season, it may not be out of the realm of possibility for him to again be on the brink of breaking out in 2014.
