The first game of the season featured a lot of injuries for the Dallas Cowboys, something people feared may be the case given a lack of preseason games. Football is a physical game and this is often an unfortunate reality of it. As the Cowboys began their season out in Los Angeles. it felt like injuries began to mount.

Just before the first half against the Rams ended. tight end Blake Jarwin went down with a dreaded non-contact injury. Nothing is official yet, but initial reports are not good.

The Cowboys fear a torn ACL for Blake Jarwin

As the third quarter unfolded for the Cowboys it was reported by the Dallas Morning News that the team fears that Blake Jarwin tore his ACL. This is awful news.

Jarwin was extended by the Cowboys this past offseason and given legitimate starter money. In the first season without Jason Witten around (again) it looked like he was going to be the featured guy at the position.

Behind Jarwin, the Cowboys have third-year tight end Dalton Schultz. Needless to say losing a starter in any capacity is never easy.
