Swaim caught one of two targets for eight yards in Thursday's 20-7 win over the Titans.
Swaim played only 21 snaps on offense (39 percent) while James O'Shaughnessy played 42 (78 percent) and caught a touchdown. The 2015 seventh-round pick appears to be operating as the clear No. 2 tight end in Jacksonville, and he isn't a notable factor in the team's passing game.
Swaim caught three of four targets for 14 yards in Sunday's 13-12 loss at Houston.
The 25-year-old found himself splitting the workload for the second straight game with James O'Shaughnessy (four catches for 28 yards). Swaim has seven receptions for 31 yards through two weeks and doesn't appear to be a worthwhile option in the Jaguars' passing game.
Swaim caught all four of his targets for 17 yards in Sunday's loss to the Chiefs.
James O'Shaughnessy received the start and served as the Jaguars' top tight end Sunday, catching four of five targets for 32 yards and playing 38 snaps to Swaim's 29. Both players are listed as starters since Jacksonville's depth chart features two tight ends, but O'Shaughnessy was the favorite for playing time and production Week 1. Swaim certainly has more upside between the two, but his season is off to a rocky start.
Swaim (foot) didn't appear Wednesday on the Jaguars' Week 1 injury report.
Swaim -- who is listed as the team's starting tight end - hasn't generated much fantasy buzz heading into the 2019 season, but the former Cowboy could move up the ranks in the coming weeks if he displays good chemistry with Jacksonville's new quarterback, Nick Foles.
Swaim, who has been tending to a foot injury, is slated to practice Monday in a limited fashion, Phillip Heilman of The Athletic reports.
Swaim has missed the Jaguars' past two preseason contests due to the injury and probably won't be fully cleared in time for Thursday's exhibition finale versus the Falcons. However, his return to the practice field increases his odds of being ready to go for the Week 1 matchup with the Chiefs on Sept. 8. Heading into training camp, Swaim was the clear frontrunner for the starting job at tight end, but the competition may have gotten tighter in light of the time he's missed. After notching 26 receptions for 242 yards and a touchdown in nine games with Dallas in 2018, Swaim probably won't be much more than a tertiary option in the Jacksonville passing game even if he ends up dominating the snaps at his position.
Swaim (undisclosed) won't play in Thursday's preseason contest against the Dolphins, John Reid of The Florida Times-Union reports.
Swaim is still managing the unspecified injury, which also kept him sidelined for last week's exhibition game versus Philadelphia. The 25-year-old projects to start at tight end for the Jaguars when healthy, though he could face pressure from rookie Josh Oliver (hamstring) down the road.
Swaim isn't expected to play in Thursday's preseason matchup with Philadelphia due to an undisclosed injury, John Oehser of the Jaguars' official site reports.
It's unclear how serious Swaim's injury is, although head coach Doug Marrone could just be exercising caution with the 25-year-old. When healthy, Swaim figures is the Jaguars' projected starter at tight end.
Swaim caught his only target for six yards in Thursday's preseason game against the Ravens.
Swaim was one of the few starters to take the field for the Jaguars and played only 15 offensive snaps. The performance doesn't move the needle for the 25-year-old, who's locked in as the starter with Josh Oliver (hamstring) sidelined.
Swaim is the clear favorite to begin the season as the Jaguars' starting tight end, Phillip Heilman of The Athletic reports.
Swaim entered training camp with an edge for the starting job over rookie third-round pick Josh Oliver, but now that Oliver is sidelined with a hamstring injury Swaim should begin the season as the top option at the position. The 25-year-old played in only nine games with Dallas due to wrist surgery last season and posted a modest 26 receptions for 242 yards and one touchdown, which still eclipsed Jacksonville's most productive tight end. If Swaim can stay healthy, he should provide a sizable red-zone option for QB Nick Foles in an offense lacking elite pass catchers.
Swaim is facing competition from rookie third-round pick Josh Oliver, John Oehser of the Jaguars' official website reports.
Swaim joined one of the weakest position groups in the league when he signed a two-year, $6.6 million deal in March. The contract still makes him a favorite for the Week 1 starting job, but his middling athleticism becomes all the more obvious next to Oliver, who tied Irv Smith Jr. for the third-fastest 40-yard dash (4.63 seconds) among tight ends at the 2019 combine. The Jaguars also have James O'Shaughnessy and Ben Koyack competing for snaps at tight end.
Swaim (wrist) is signing with the Jaguars, Dan Graziano of ESPN.com reports.
Coming off a season-ending wrist injury, Swaim couldn't have found a better location in terms of opportunity for playing time. The Jaguars figure to add more bodies in the coming weeks, but their current depth chart at tight end consists of nothing more than Swaim, Ben Koyack (hand) and Pharoah McKever -- a group that's combined for 59 career receptions and two touchdowns. Even with the favorable situation, Swaim hasn't displayed enough pass-catching potential to warrant consideration in standard fantasy formats. He had a cast removed from his wrist in early January and should be fine for the start of the Jaguars' offseason program in mid-April.
Swaim (knee) produced 26 receptions, 242 receiving yards and one touchdown over nine games in 2018.
Swaim fractured his wrist in a way that required surgery last November and ultimately was planted on injured reserve for the final six games of the season, a period in which second-year backup Blake Jarwin snagged 23 passes for 265 yards and three scores. While Swaim has since had the cast removed from his surgically repaired arm and seems to be nearly full health, the four-year veteran will become an unrestricted free agent in March and may not be as big of a priority for Dallas to re-sign in free agency than Swaim was before Jarwin's emergence.
Swaim (wrist) will have his cast removed Thursday, Brandon George of The Dallas Morning News reports.
While he seems to be making good progress, Swaim isn't eligible to return this season even if the Cowboys make a deep playoff run. Blake Jarwin's Week 17 breakout locks him in as the team's top pass-catching threat at tight end.
Swaim (wrist) was placed on injured reserve Saturday, Rob Phillips of the Cowboys' official site reports.
Swaim was slated to miss his fifth straight game Sunday so the Cowboys made the proactive choice by ruling the tight end out for the rest of the season. Blake Jarwin has turned into a viable weapon in Swaim's absence, recording 11 receptions and 101 receiving yards in the last two weeks, and figures to continue to reprise the role as the Cowboys inch towards a playoff berth.
Swaim (wrist) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Buccaneers, Jon Machota of The Dallas Morning News reports.
Swaim failed to practice Wednesday through Friday, making it inevitable that he would be sidelined for a fifth straight week. The tight end has taken longer to recover from wrist surgery than the Cowboys initially predicted, but the team's decision not to place him on injured reserve implies there remains a belief he'll be ready to go by Week 17 or the playoffs. While Swaim has been out, Blake Jarwin has emerged as the Cowboys' top option at tight end, drawing seven targets in back-to-back contests.
Swaim (wrist) did not practice Thursday, Brandon George of The Dallas Morning News reports.
Swaim has missed the last four games after undergoing surgery for a fractured wrist in mid-November, and has yet to return to practice. The 25-year-old is trending towards remaining sidelined for Sunday's tilt against the Buccaneers, in which case Blake Jarwin would once again serve as the Cowboys' top tight end.
Swaim (wrist) was a non-participant at Wednesday's practice, Calvin Watkins of The Athletic reports.
Swaim underwent surgery for a fractured wrist in mid-November and has missed the last four games. The 25-year-old was originally projected to have a 3-to-4-week absence, so he's already reached the end of that initial timetable without any meaningful sign of progress. The 2015 seventh-round pick will likely need to practice in some capacity Thursday and Friday in order to have a real chance of playing Sunday against the Buccaneers.
Swaim (wrist) has been ruled out for Sunday's game at Indianapolis, Jon Machota of The Dallas Morning News reports.
Swaim required surgery on a broken wrist suffered Nov. 18. It was accompanied by a prognosis of 3-to-4 weeks, but now that he's fast approaching the back end of that timetable with no return to practice in sight, there's no telling when the fourth-year tight end will be available to the offense again. His next chance to practice will be Wednesday, Dec. 19 in preparation for a Week 16 matchup with the Buccaneers.
Swaim (wrist) isn't participating in Thursday's practice, Brandon George of The Dallas Morning News reports.
Shortly after Swaim was diagnosed with a fractured bone in his wrist coming out of a Nov. 19 win over the Falcons, Cowboys owner Jerry Jones estimated that the tight end would be sidelined for 3-to-4 weeks following surgery. Now that Swaim is more than three weeks removed from the procedure and has yet to resume practicing, it seems Jones' projected timetable might have been overly optimistic. Swaim hasn't officially been ruled out for the Week 15 matchup with the Colts, but confirmation on that front will likely come after Friday's practice, assuming the 25-year-old doesn't participate in that session.
Owner Jerry Jones estimated Tuesday that Swaim would be sidelined for 3-to-4 weeks while the tight end recovers from wrist surgery, David Helman of the Cowboys' official site reports.
Swaim previously missed a game earlier this season while recovering from an MCL sprain in his knee, but had played in both of the Cowboys' subsequent two contests. He was diagnosed with a fractured bone in his wrist in the aftermath of Sunday's 22-19 win over the Falcons and now looks poised to sit out the Cowboys' Thanksgiving Day game against the Redskins, and perhaps additional contests to follow. Though Swaim has served as the team's top tight end this season, the role hasn't translated to much in the way of interesting fantasy production, as he recorded just 26 receptions for 242 yards and a touchdown across his nine appearances. Look for Dalton Schultz, Blake Jarwin and Rico Gathers to all benefit from mild increases in their snap counts for the duration of Swaim's absence.
