Blake Jarwin torn the ACL in his right knee Sunday and will miss the remainder of the 2020 season an MRI confirmed Monday, Cowboys chief operating officer Stephen Jones said on 105.3 The Fan FM. Jarwin will have surgery to repair his ACL.
“It’s pretty clear that Jarwin is unfortunately going to have to have his ACL repaired, and we all know what that means. Obviously a tough loss for us,” Jones said.
Jarwin, a former Oklahoma State standout, suffered the non-contact injury when he tried cut to the inside on a route in the second quarter of Dallas’ 20-17 loss to the Rams at SoFi Stadium in Los Angeles. He had one catch for 12 yards before exiting the game due to the injury.
