DeMarcus Lawrence underwent offseason surgery, joining Dez Bryant, Tyrone Crawford and several other Cowboys on the rehab list. The defensive end had a procedure to repair a back issue that kept him on the team’s injury report for much of the second half of the season.

Cowboys coach Jason Garrett told the team’s website that Lawrence is expected back “fairly soon.”

Lawrence’s agent, David Canter, took to social media on Saturday night to quiet any concerns about Lawrence. Canter posted on his Twitter account, @davidcanter, “Just a public service announcement @TankLawrence is 100% and will be good to go and have a huge season #muchadoaboutnothing.”

In his second season, Lawrence led the team in sacks with eight and ranked second on the team in quarterback pressures with 31.

Crawford underwent surgery on a torn rotator cuff; Bryant had foot surgery and also had an ankle cleaned up. Tony Romo is expected to have a plate surgically attached to his left collarbone.
