Tries out for Philly

The Eagles worked out Jarwin (hip) on Tuesday, Aaron Wilson of KPRC 2 Houston reports.

Analysis: After tearing his ACL in Week 1 of the 2020-21 NFL campaign, Jarwin has since dealt with a nagging hip issue that's caused him to see game action just eight times across the last two years. However, his workout for the Eagles on Tuesday suggests that the 28-year-old tight end is in a comfortable spot health-wise, and he'll now await further opportunities to rejuvenate his professional career.

Waived/injured by Cowboys

Jarwin (hip) has been waived/injured by the Cowboys, Nick Eatman of the team's official site reports.

Analysis: The team also announced the release of kicker Greg Zuerlein on Friday, with the moves freeing up cap space for the team in advance of free agency. Jarwin isn't expected to be available for the start of the 2022 campaign after he recently underwent hip surgery.

Unlikely to be ready to begin 2022

Jarwin isn't expected to be available for the start of the 2022 campaign after he recently underwent hip surgery, Michael Gehlken of The Dallas Morning News reports.

Analysis: Jarwin's procedure is usually reserved for hockey and basketball players, and the surgery is uncommon among active NFL players. While the Cowboys are optimistic in his ability to recover, he's expected to carry a timetable of 6-to-8 months before he's cleared to return, Clarence E. Hill Jr. of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports. As a result, the team could choose to restructure his contract or cut him during the offseason. Dalton Schultz is slated to become an unrestricted free agent in mid-March, so the Cowboys could make a push to bring him back or give him the franchise tag.

Another injury-plagued campaign

Jarwin caught 11 of 17 targets for 96 yards and two touchdowns over eight games this season.

Analysis: Once again injuries cut Jarwin's campaign short, as this time a hip issue cost him most of the second half. The tight end has two years and $11.5 million left on his current contract and has suited up for only nine games over the last two seasons, and while the Cowboys could get out of the deal without taking much of a salary cap hit, they're more likely to hang onto Jarwin and hope he can stay healthy in 2022 with Dalton Schultz potentially priced out of their plans as a free agent.

Makes catch in return

Jarwin caught one of two targets for six yards in Saturday's win over the Eagles.

Analysis: Making his return from a nine-game absence due to a hip injury, Jarwin was eased back into action and saw only 12 snaps. He also showed his rust on the target he didn't catch, letting a potential touchdown slip through his hands at the end of the second quarter. Dalton Schultz is the clear No. 1 tight end for Dallas, but Jarwin could see a larger role in the offense when the Cowboys host the 49ers in the wild-card round Sunday.

Returns off IR

Jarwin (hip) was activated off injured reserve Saturday.

Analysis: Jarwin hasn't played since injuring his hip in Week 8, but prior to that the veteran tight end had fallen out of favor for the emerging Dalton Schultz. Don't expect that to change particularly with Schultz solidifying his role as the No. 1 tight end in recent weeks.

Jan 8, 2022 1:10 PM EST

Ready for practice

The Cowboys designated Jarwin (hip) for return from injured reserve Tuesday.

Analysis: The transaction opens up a 21-day window for the Cowboys to evaluate Jarwin in practice before either adding him to the 53-man roster or keeping him on IR for the remainder of the season. Before he was sidelined following Week 8 with the hip injury, Jarwin appeared in seven games and caught 10 of 15 targets for 90 yards and two scores while working as the No. 2 tight end behind Dalton Schultz. If he's able to demonstrate good health in practices Tuesday through Thursday, Jarwin could be activated from IR and suit up in Saturday's regular-season finale with the Eagles. Dallas would still have a chance to bring Jarwin back for the postseason even if he's not ready to go for Week 18.

Jan 4, 2022 11:09 AM EST

Not ready this week

Coach Mike McCarthy said Jarwin (hip) should resume on-field work next week or the week after, Michael Gehlken of The Dallas Morning News reports.

Analysis: The timeline suggests Jarwin won't be back until the playoffs, or perhaps the final week of the regular season. Either way, Dalton Schultz is locked in as the Cowboys' top tight end, though he's in the final year of his rookie contract while Jarwin's deal run through 2023 (albeit with no guarantees after this year, per

Dec 22, 2021 11:02 AM EST

Could return this season

Coach Mike McCarthy said Wednesday it's possible Jarwin (hip) retakes the field in 2021, Michael Gehlken of The Dallas Morning News reports.

Analysis: Jarwin was placed on IR due to a hip injury early November and recently also logged a stint on the reserve/COVID-19 list, but he's since fully cleared the league's pandemic protocols and returned to team facilities. McCarthy said Jarwin is "optimistic" about his chances of returning down the stretch, but he didn't go so far as committing to the tight end eventually coming back. Jarwin is eligible to be designated for return from IR as soon as the Cowboys deem he's ready to resume handling some reps.

Moves back to IR

Jarwin (hip) reverted to injured reserve after the Cowboys restored him from the reserve/COVID-19 list Tuesday.

Analysis: Jarwin's placement on the reserve/COVID-19 on Nov. 26 didn't have any bearing on his availability for the Cowboys, as he was already slated to miss time with the hip injury that resulted in his placement on IR on Nov. 6. Though Jarwin is eligible to resume practicing with the Cowboys at any point, the Cowboys have yet to provide an update on when he'll be able to do so. Sean McKeon should continue to serve as the main backup to No. 1 tight end Dalton Schultz in the meantime.

Moves to COVID-19 list

The Cowboys placed Jarwin (hip) on the reserve/COVID-19 list Friday, Field Yates of ESPN reports.

Analysis: Jarwin already resided on injured reserve due to a hip injury that he sustained Week 8 against the Vikings. It's unclear if he tested positive or merely was a close contact of someone who did, but if he clears league protocols in the near future he could be available for next Thursday's contest at New Orleans, as he's missed four games while on IR.

Nov 26, 2021 1:55 PM EST

Placed on IR

The Cowboys have placed Jarwin (hip) on the IR-R, Calvin Watkins of The Dallas Morning News reports.

Analysis: Jarwin was already ruled out for the Cowboys' Week 9 matchup with the Broncos, and it appears his hip injury is a multi-week issue. He will now be forced to miss at least three weeks before he is eligible to return. While Dalton Shultz will remain the team's primary pass-catcher at tight end, Sean McKeon and Jeremy Sprinkle could see some extra snaps as a result of this move.

Nov 6, 2021 12:30 PM EST

Won't play Sunday

Jarwin (hip) will not play Sunday against the Broncos, Rob Phillips of the Cowboys' official site reports.

Analysis: Jarwin had yet to practice this week, so this new doesn't come as a big surprise. He picked up the injury in the Cowboys' Week 8 win over the Vikings. With Jarwin out, the newly activated Sean McKeon (ankle) and Jeremy Sprinkle will look to pick up the extra tight end snaps behind starter Dalton Schultz.

Nov 5, 2021 3:13 PM EST

Looks unlikely to play Week 9

Jarwin (hip) won't practice Thursday, Michael Gehlken of The Dallas Morning News reports.

Analysis: With consecutive absences to kick off Week 9 prep, Jarwin appears to be trending toward sitting out Sunday's game against the Broncos on account of the hip injury he picked up during the Cowboys' Week 8 win over the Vikings. If Jarwin is in fact sidelined this weekend, the freshly activated Sean McKeon (ankle) along with Jeremy Sprinkle would be in line for snaps at the No. 2 tight end spot behind starter Dalton Schultz.

Nov 4, 2021 8:59 AM EST

No practice Wednesday

Jarwin (hip) is not participating in Wednesday's practice, Jon Machota of The Athletic reports.

Analysis: Jarwin injured his hip during Sunday's win over the Vikings, though details of the issue remain undisclosed. He will have two more opportunities to upgrade his practice activity ahead of Week 9's matchup against the Broncos.

Nov 3, 2021 8:42 AM EST

Scores second TD of year

Jarwin caught one of two targets for a one-yard touchdown in Sunday's overtime win over the Patriots.

Analysis: The tight end has only 10 catches through six games, but two of them have gone for scores. Jarwin is the clear No. 2 at his position behind Dalton Schultz, and it might take an injury to Schultz to propel Jarwin back into consistent fantasy relevance in most formats.

Oct 18, 2021 9:37 AM EST

Finds end zone Sunday

Jarwin caught one of three targets for 18 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's win over the Panthers.

Analysis: Dalton Schultz once again saw a lot more work as a receiver, leading Dallas with eight targets on the day, but Jarwin was able to score his first TD of the season early in the second quarter. He has yet to see more than four targets or top 37 receiving yards in a game this year, however, making him a risky fantasy play in Week 5 against the Giants.

Oct 4, 2021 8:17 AM EST

Quiet in Monday's rout

Jarwin caught both his targets for 14 yards in Monday's 41-21 win over the Eagles.

Analysis: Meanwhile, fellow tight end Dalton Schultz was Dak Prescott's favorite option on the night, leading the Cowboys in catches, targets and receiving yards while hauling in two TDs. Jarwin has seen a modest role in the Dallas passing game to begin the season, and while he's capable of popping the way Schultz did in any given week, he's a risky fantasy option heading into a Week 4 clash with the Panthers.

Sep 28, 2021 7:34 AM EST

Three catches against Bolts

Jarwin caught three of four targets for 37 yards in Sunday's win over the Chargers.

Analysis: It wasn't much, but Jarwin still produced better numbers than Dalton Schultz. It will likely take an injury to one of them to make the other a viable fantasy option on a weekly basis.

Sep 21, 2021 11:44 AM EST

Makes one catch count Saturday

Jarwin caught his only target for a 25-yard gain in Saturday's preseason loss to the Texans.

Analysis: Both Jarwin and Dalton Schultz got work with the Cowboys' starters in the first quarter before the team went to its bench, but Jarwin made the bigger impact as his lone grab set Dallas up in the red zone and eventually led to a Tony Pollard touchdown. The respective track records of the two tight ends suggest Jarwin is the more dynamic receiver, but in an offense with a lot of mouths to feed, it could be tough for either one to post consistently useful fantasy numbers as long as they're splitting snaps.
