AFC rushing leader Isaiah Crowell (ASU) keeps pledge to Dallas Fallen Officer Foundation

MONTGOMERY, Alabama -- Cleveland Browns running back Isaiah Crowellhas made good on his pledge to donate his first game check of the 2016 NFL season to the Dallas Fallen Officer Foundation.

In July, Crowell briefly posted on his Instagram account an image of a policeman having his throat slashed by a hooded figure.
The post came after two black men -- Alton Sterling in Louisiana on July 5 and Philando Castile in Minnesota on July 6 -- were killed by police officers and the day before 12 police officers were shot and five were killed at a Black Lives Matter rally in Dallas on July 7.
On July 16, Crowell attended the funeral of Patrick Zamarripa, one of the five Dallas Police officers killed by the sniper. The formerAlabama State star went to the funeral after an invitation from Dallas Police Sgt. Demetrick Pennie, the president of the Dallas Fallen Officer Foundation.
