NASHVILLE – The Titans have removed defensive lineman Jack Crawford from the NFL's new Reserve/COVID-19 list and he's now on the active roster.
Crawford is eligible to return to practice as early as today.
The new reserve list category was created for a player who either tests positive for COVID-19 or who has been quarantined after having been in close contact with an infected person or persons. If a player falls into either of these categories, his club is required to immediately place the player on the reserve/COVID-19 list. Per agreed upon NFL-NFLPA policy, clubs are not permitted to comment on player's medical status other than referring to roster status. Clubs may not disclose whether player is in quarantine or is positive for COVID-19.
Crawford (6-5, 274), signed by the Titans earlier this offseason, is an eight-year veteran who has played with the Raiders, Cowboys and Falcons since entering the NFL in 2012.
In 93 career games, Crawford has recorded 132 tackles and 16 sacks. He recorded a career-high 35 tackles and six sacks during the 2018 season with the Falcons, where he played for the past three seasons. In 16 games with the Falcons in 2019, Crawford tallied 24 tackles and a half-sack. In his first season with the Falcons in 2017, Crawford suffered a torn biceps injury in Week 4.
In eight seasons, Crawford has started 26 games.
A fifth-round draft pick of the Oakland Raiders in the 2012 NFL Draft, Crawford was born in London, England. He moved to the United States in 2005 and attended St. Augustine Preparatory School in Richland, New Jersey.
Crawford, who is 31, played his first two seasons with the Raiders (2012-13) before playing three seasons with the Cowboys (2014-16). He's played at defensive tackle and defensive end during his NFL career.
