Swaim (knee) was a full participant in Wednesday's practice, Jon Machota of The Dallas Morning News reports. Swaim practiced in full to begin the week, and appears to have fully recovered from his lingering knee issue. The four-year pro hauled in all three of his targets for 13 yards during Dallas' win over the Eagles in Week 10, and has not dropped a pass since Week 4. Swaim will remain the Cowboys' No. 1 tight end during Sunday's tilt against the Falcons.
Swaim (knee) is active for Sunday's contest at Philadelphia, David Helman of the Cowboys' official site reports. The Cowboys have deemed Swaim ready to return exactly three weeks after he sprained the MCL in his knee. Because he was limited in every practice this week, he likely isn't ready to handle his usual workload, meaning Blake Jarwin, Dalton Schultz and Rico Gathers should remain a part of a TE rotation.
Swaim (knee) remained limited at practice Friday and is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Eagles, Jon Machota of The Dallas Morning News reports. Swaim will be three weeks removed from suffering an MCL sprain by Sunday night, but there's no guarantee in terms of target volume even if he ends up playing. The inactive list before Sunday's 8:20 PM ET kickoff is unlikely to provide an answer, as the Cowboys have already ruled out six players and may use the seventh spot on No. 3 quarterback Mike White. Another absence for Swaim would leave Blake Jarwin, Dalton Schultz and Rico Gathers in a committee for a second straight week.
Swaim (knee) was a limited participant in Thursday's practice, David Helman of the Cowboys' official site reports. Swaim was sidelined for the first time all season in Monday's 28-14 loss to the Titans after sustaining an MCL sprain in the Cowboys' previous game Oct. 21 against Washington. With two and a half weeks to recover from the injury, Swaim looks to be inching closer to full health as Sunday's tilt with the Eagles approaches. If Swaim shows continued improvement at Friday's practice and is cleared to play this weekend, he could take back his starting role at tight end, though that hasn't meant much for fantasy purposes this season. Swaim has reached the end zone once in seven appearances and has topped out at five receptions and 55 yards in a given game.
Swaim (knee) didn't practice Wednesday, Jon Machota of The Dallas Morning News reports. Swaim didn't practice at all last week and was listed as doubtful ahead of Monday's 28-14 loss to the Titans before ultimately missing that contest. Blake Jarwin, Dalton Schultz and Rico Gathers split playing time at tight end, with the position group accounting for just two targets on 31 pass attempts from Dak Prescott. Swaim likely needs to practice Thursday or Friday to have a shot at making it back for the Week 10 game against the Eagles.
