Dec. 21, 2021 – He said that alcoholism runs in his family and that he struggled with drinking and partying throughout high school and college. During his rookie season, his alcohol consumption became too much for him. Crosby said that he always knew he had a problem and got ahead of it by going to rehab. He spent a month in a rehabilitation facility in Los Angeles and then stayed in a sober living facility until training camp began that summer. Now, 22 months later, he is and remains completely sober off of the field. Meanwhile, on the field, he is having a career year.

Crosby is a big factor on a Raiders defense that has kept his team’s playoffs hopes alive. Through 13 games, the 6-foot-5, 225-pounder has made 43 tackles, 25 solo, eight for loss and five sacks, as well as five pass breakups and 25 quarterback hits.
