Jarwin, 27 years old, had fallen to fourth place in pass-catching, behind Lamb, Cooper, and Dalton Schultz. Jarwin was quarterback Dak Prescott’s preferred safety net. Jarwin’s seven games have seen him gain 90 yards and score two touchdowns on ten receptions compared to Schultz, who has a 33-370-3-3 line. Jeremy Sprinkle, Sean McKeon and Sean McKeon (a buzzed about 2020 undrafted-free agent who was activated earlier this week from IR) will be supporting Schultz against Denver. McKeon, who suffered a high-ankle strain during the preseason, has not played in 2021.
“When rotating in 12 personnel, starting Sunday.vs., this trio is well-suited for imposing physicality in the running game,” Gehlken noted.
