Gavin Escobar suffers shoulder injury Saturday
by R.J. White |

Cowboys tight end Gavin Escobar suffered a shoulder injury while laying out for a 37-yard completion in the third quarter of Saturday's preseason game, reports.

Escobar will be evaluated on Sunday, though coach Jason Garrett doesn't think "the injury will be too, too serious," he said.

Escobar was the second-leading receiver for the Cowboys in Saturday's loss to the Ravens, catching three passes for 58 yards. He's looking to earn a bigger supplement of targets this season after catching nine balls for 134 yards and two touchdowns in 2013.

Gavin Escobar picked as most improved Cowboy
by Larry Hartstein |

Tight end Gavin Escobar will be the most improved player on the Cowboys, according to's Todd Archer. Escobar might not improve his blocking much, but should play a lot more in 2014.

"I think the Cowboys will use him and play to his strengths more," Archer said. "He’ll attack the seams and be a red-zone threat on occasion."

The 6-6, 249-pounder caught nine passes for 134 yards and two touchdowns as a rookie. Jason Witten will continue to dominate targets among Cowboys tight ends.

Cowboys concerned about hamstring injuries
by Larry Hartstein |

Twelve Cowboys suffered hamstring injuries of varying severity in 2013, reports The list consisted of Miles Austin, Morris Claiborne, Sean Lee, Justin Durant, Dwayne Harris, Bruce Carter, Danny McCray, Barry Church, Dez Bryant, Lance Dunbar, Gavin Escobar and Terrance Williams.

Coach Jason Garrett is looking at other teams' approaches to find a solution. He might cut back the time players spend on the field early in the offseason, the report said. 

“It is valuable to do the football stuff. We don’t feel like there’s a lot of football stuff right now,” Garrett told the website. “We want to be careful about how much we take away from that. But there’s a couple weeks prior to all that stuff starting. We’ve talked about tweaking the daily schedule and what we’re doing those first couple weeks as we start to lay the foundation for the offseason.”

Jason Witten not getting replaced by Gavin Escobar yet
by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer

Cowboys coach Jason Garrett doesn't expect tight end Jason Witten to lose any playing time to second-year Gavin Escobar in 2014, reports ESPN.

"Witt's a great football player and has been for a long time, a Pro Bowler again last year," Garrett said. "In my opinion, our opinion, the best tight end in football and has been for decades. Witt's certainly going to be a big part of what we do with our offensive football team. But that doesn't mean Gavin can't be more involved."

Witten had 73 catches for 851 yards and eight touchdowns in 2013. Escobar had just nine catches for 134 yards and two touchdowns as a rookie.
