Dallas Cowboys tight end Blake Jarwin underwent hip surgery in February and will miss the 2022 season opener, local media reported Thursday.
Blake Jarwin underwent surgery ‘very rare among active players’. Media reports say the Dallas Cowboys are “extremely concerned” by the 27-year-old’s injury.
Blake Jarwin was injured last October and stayed on the injured reserve list for most of the season before returning in the playoffs. Blake Jarwin played in 8 games last season, completed 11 catches for 96 yards and 2 touchdowns. Blake Jarwin played just nine snaps in the playoffs and didn’t catch the ball.
Before suffering a torn ACL in his knee during the 2020 season, Blake Jarwin played in 32 regular-season games for the first two years, finishing 58 catches for 672 yards and six touchdowns. It also landed him a four-year, $22 million contract in the 2020 offseason, but injuries took a toll on him.
The Dallas Cowboys played tight end Dalton Schultz in place of Blake Jarwin last season. Dalton Schultz completed 78 catches for 808 yards and eight touchdowns. But he is free now.
