Jerry Jones says Crawford and McClain ready to practice
The Dallas Cowboys handled the Jacksonville Jaguars 31-17 with the defense forcing three sacks and two turnovers, all without the efforts of starting defensive tackle Tyrone Crawford and late-blooming linebacker Rolando McClain.
Cowboys owner, president, and general manager Jerry Jones believes both players are ready to practice, and could possibly play in New York on Sunday night.
"I think they're good to go," Jones said Tuesday on 105.3 The Fan [KRLD-FM]. "Both will practice, and so I feel good about them."
Jones also added that starting left guard Ronald Leary and starting right tackle Doug Free, who returned to action for the first time against the Jaguars, are good to go.
According to Jones, the Cowboys' "biggest concern" is with undrafted rookie free agent cornerback Tyler Patmon, who returned a 58-yard interception for a touchdown against the Arizona Cardinals. Though the initial prognosis of Patmon's knee injury was that he would be out two to four weeks, Jones indicated the rookie from Oklahoma State will likely be out four weeks.
