Cowboys QB Dalton to come off COVID-19 list

The Dallas Cowboys will activate quarterback Andy Dalton and defensive lineman Tyrone Crawford from the reserve/COVID-19 list on Wednesday, coach Mike McCarthy said.

Dalton returned to practice on Monday after missing two games. He was in both the concussion and COVID-19 protocols. Crawford was placed on the list on Nov. 11 after coming into contact with a person who tested positive.

Dalton, signed to back up starter Dak Prescott, came in during the Cowboys’ Oct. 11 game against the New York Giants after Prescott went down with a gruesome, season-ending ankle injury. Dallas (2-7) won that game on a field goal in the last minute.

With Dalton hurt two games later, third- and fourth-stringers Ben DiNucci and Garrett Gilbert have started for Dallas, which has lost four straight and is coming off a bye week.

Dalton has thrown for 452 yards this season with one touchdown and three interceptions while completing 61.2 percent of his passes. The 33-year-old veteran spent his first nine seasons with the Cincinnati Bengals, throwing for 31,594 yards and 204 touchdowns with 118 interceptions. He was a three-time Pro Bowl selection during his time in Cincinnati.

Crawford, 30, has played 45 percent of the team’s defensive snaps through the first nine games of the season.

The Cowboys travel to face the Minnesota Vikings (4-5) on Sunday.
