TE - DAL - OUT
Week 17 Outlook
Cowboys' VP Stephen Jones confirmed that TE Blake Jarwin did in fact suffer a torn ACL during Sunday night's loss to the Rams. Jarwin will undergo reconstructive surgery and will miss the rest of the season.
This is brutal news for the 26-year-old TE, as there was plenty of excitement surrounding his development heading into the season. His 2020 campaign will come to an end at 25 snaps and the Cowboys will now turn to Dalton Schultz and Blake Bell to handle most of the snaps at tight end, though it wouldn't be all that shocking to see them trade for a proven commodity at the position.
After initial evaluation, the Cowboys' fear that starting TE Blake Jarwin has suffered a torn ACL. Jarwin will undergo an MRI to reveal the full nature of his injury.
Brutal. A torn ACL would likely cost Jarwin the entire season. The 26-year-old TE will undergo an MRI to confirm the initial fear at some point in the next 24 hours. More to come.
Cowboys' TE Blake Jarwin has been ruled out for the remainder of Sunday's game after going down with a non-contact knee injury late in the first half.
The severity of Jarwin's injury is unknown at this time but it's not an encouraging sign that he is not able to return. Dalton Schultz has replaced Jarwin in the lineup.
Cowboys' TE Blake Jarwin went to the ground with a non-contact injury late in the first half and hobbled to the sidelines before walking back to the locker room.
The severity of the injury is not yet known, but non-contact injuries are hardly a good thing. It was, however, a good sign that he was able to walk off under his own power. Stay tuned for an official update.
According to Cowboys' Executive Vice President Stephen Jones, TE Blake Jarwin has been turning heads during training camp. Jones went on to say, "I think Blake Jarwin has had an amazing camp. He just keeps getting better. His rapport with Dak is outstanding, and I really think he’s got a chance to step right in there and be a really good, if not great, tight end for us.”
That's some lofty praise for the 26-year-old tight end entering his fourth year in the league. With the departure of longtime Cowboy Jason Witten in free agency, Jarwin will have big shoes to fill in 2020 but it sounds like he's up to the task. Currently the TE18 based off of the most recent FantasyPros' Expert Consensus Rankings, Jarwin looks primed to smash his current ADP and has a real shot to finish inside the top-12 at tight end if this Dallas offense is as potent as advertised.
