Swaim (foot) is unlikely to return to team activities until training camp, Todd Archer of ESPN reports.
Both Swaim and fellow tight end James Hanna are not expected to participate in organized team activities or June's minicamp as they continue to recover from injuries. The plan is for Swaim to return for the start of training camp in July, barring any setbacks.
Swaim underwent surgery on his foot and is likely out until training camp, Todd Archer of ESPN reports.
Swaim had a screw inserted into his right foot because of an injury suffered during informal workouts. He will likely be held out until the Cowboys head for training camp in late July. Swaim is mostly a blocking tight end for Dallas, as he caught a mere six passes for 69 yards during the 2016 season.
Swaim (pectoral) will undergo surgery Thursday and is expected to be out for four months, Kate Hairopoulos of the Dallas Morning News reports.
Swaim suffered the injury in Sunday's win over the Steelers and now it appears as if the remainder of his season could be in jeopardy. The Cowboys will only have two healthy tight ends on the active roster in Jason Witten and Gavin Escobar, so look for the team to possibly bring on a free agent sometime this week.
Swaim did not hold much stock as Jason Witten's backup but provided blocking assistance for the team's highly effective ground game in two-tight end sets. A return this season is seemingly doubtful given that surgery is imminent. Gavin Escobar is in line to fill in as the team's backup tight end.
