Apparently, the injury binds the Cowboys to a great extent. Even with Jarvin finishing in the starting position, the tight end position looked like one of the thinnest positions on this roster.
Dalton Shultes was not exactly persuasive in Jarwin’s absence. The tight end of the third year attracted an offensive pass interference flag on the Cowboys’ touchdown drive, and he also dropped two crucial passes.
Fellow backup Blake Bell played only eight snaps, while rookie Sean McConn was a healthy scratch from the Game Day roster.
There will undoubtedly be questions about how the Cowboys address Jordan’s absence. In addition to three other tight ends on the roster, Cole Hikutini is also in the team’s practice squad.
“We were getting a little heavy with McConn before and it would definitely be his time to step in with Dalton and Bell. Obviously playing a more important role going forward as well,” Jones said. “And definitely look at keeping our tight end numbers. We’ll see what’s on the tight end as well.”
