Dallas Cowboys tight end Dalton Schultz is reportedly set to endure an MRI after suffering a knee injury late in Sunday’s 20-17 make an impression on the Cincinnati Bengals.
In accordance with Michael Gehlken of the Dallas Morning News, there’s “no concern” concerning the structure of Schultz’s ACL, however the MRI will reveal more clarity.
Schultz recorded two catches for 18 yards ahead of exiting the overall game. He was forced to sit out Dallas’ final offensive drive that setup a game-winning 50-yard field goal by Brett Maher. He now has seven receptions for 62 yards without touchdowns through the initial two games of the growing season.
The 26-year-old is playing the 2022 season on a one-year franchise tag, that is worth $10.9 million. Schultz skipped the voluntary part of the Cowboys’ offseason program before reporting for mandatory minicamp and training camp. He previously a lifetime career year in 2021, posting 78 catches for 808 yards and eight touchdowns while playing in every 17 games.
A personal injury to Schultz will be the latest blow to a Cowboys team that already includes a depleted offense. Starting quarterback Dak Prescott underwent thumb surgery and can not be back any time in the future. Dallas lost wide receiver James Washington to a fractured foot during training camp. Wideout Michael Gallup continues to be working his in the past from the torn ACL suffered last season. Starting left tackle Tyron Smith has gone out until at the very least December with a hamstring injury.
The Cowboys desire to have Schultz in the lineup if they go back to action in a few days against the GAMBLING on Monday Night Football.
