Dallas Cowboys defensive lineman Tyrone Crawford has passed all tests from doctors and was back at the Cowboys’ facility in Frisco on Monday.

Crawford left Sunday’s 27-20 win against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers after the second play from scrimmage with a neck injury. The scary play required Crawford to be carried off the field on a spinal board.

“He was in our building today and apparently doing better,” Cowboys coach Jason Garrett said on a teleconference Monday afternoon. “We’ll take his situation day by day and just see what he’s able to do. He seems to be walking around and functioning normally.”

Crawford was given an MRI and other tests at a hospital on Sunday and everything came back negative. Crawford has been a full-time starter for the past five seasons.

The Cowboys (9-6) conclude the regular season against the Giants at noon Sunday in New York. Dallas will host either the Seattle Seahawks or Minnesota Vikings in the wild card on either Jan. 5 or 6.
