The Cowboys fear starting defensive end Tyrone Crawford has suffered a broken leg

Dallas Cowboys defensive lineman Tyrone Crawford is reportedly being investigated by the NFL after being involved in a bar fight in Florida on March 15.

Crawford, a defensive captain for Dallas last year, was reportedly seen on video shoving police officers as they attempted to stop the melee, which left several people hurt, per TMZ Sports: “…multiple people suffered bloody injuries, including bar staff. One employee suffered a broken foot in the melee.”

Though he was not arrested, Crawford is now being investigated by the NFL, which sent a group of investigators to the Coyote Ugly Saloon in Panama City Beach, per TMZ Sports.



According to the report, it’s unclear if the investigators were shown the bar’s surveillance video. However, a video from outside the bar reportedly shows “Crawford barreling through two cops and shoving two other cops while they tried to arrest one of the alleged combatants.”

For what it’s worth, Crawford isn’t the only NFL player involved in a bar fight recently.

As we’ve seen in the past, Crawford certainly could be disciplined by the NFL over this incident, despite not being arrested. If he is, then it would mark the third defensive lineman on Dallas’ roster that faced league discipline this offseason.
