Cowboys lose Jarwin for 2020 season

By Anthony Caruso III | Publisher

The Dallas Cowboys took a hit to their offense on Sunday night. In their season opener, the team lost starting tight end Blake Jarwin.

He suffered a torn ACL against the Los Angeles Rams at SoFi Stadium. An MRI confirmed the season-ending injury.

Jarwin is expected to have surgery on his torn ACL. He played less than a half, before being lost with his significant injury.

“It’s pretty clear that Jarwin is unfortunately going to have to have his ACL repaired, and we all know what that means. Obviously a tough loss for us,” Cowboys owner/GM Jerry Jones said.

Jarwin had high expectations coming into the season. The four-year pro was entering his first season as the team’s starter.

Jason Witten was the team’s starter last season after coming out of retirement. He signed a one-year, $4 million deal with the Las Vegas Raiders in the off-season.

He had one reception for 12-yards before being injured.

With Jarwin no longer in the picture, the Cowboys depth chart is very thin. Dalton Schultz and Blake Bell – who signed with the team in the off-season – are expected to fill-in for Jarwin if the team does not make a roster move.

“We were going a little heavy there before with McKeon and certainly it’ll be his time to step up with Dalton and Bell obviously playing an even more important role going forward,” Jones said. “And certainly look to keep our tight end numbers in place. We’ll look to see what’s out there at tight end as well.”

The 24-year-old Schultz has spent the last two seasons with the Cowboys. He appeared in 27 games, including seven starts.

Jarwin had 31 receptions for a career-high 365 receptions last season with three touchdowns. Witten led the tight ends with 63 receptions for 529 yards and four touchdowns.

Schultz has 14 receptions for 133 yards, including one reception for 11 yards in the loss to the Rams. The 29-year-old Bell – who signed a one-year deal with the Cowboys in the off-season – has bounced around in the league.

Dallas is his fifth team in the league. He was apart of the Kansas City Chiefs team that won the Super Bowl over the San Francisco 49ers in February.

Bell has appeared in 65 games, including 19 starts. He has 38 receptions for 424 yards.
