Jarwin finished the regular season with 27 catches on 36 targets for 307 yards and three touchdowns.
He played in all 16 games, but it wasn't until Geoff Swaim broke his wrist that Jarwin got a chance to shine. His 119-yard, three-TD performance against the Giants in Week 17 obviously stands out, but Jarwin saw at least seven targets in three of the Cowboys' final four regular-season games as he earned Dak Prescott's trust at the sticks and down the seam. Swaim is a free agent in the offseason, but even if he returns to Dallas, Jarwin should be the favorite to take the top spot on the tight end depth chart heading into 2019.
With a high-ankle sprain in tow, Jarwin was subject to a pregame workout, which included work on resistance cords, according to Jon Machota of The Dallas Morning News. It went well enough for Jarwin to gain clearance to suit up, but his snap count may be tied to pain tolerance. If Jarwin's workload is diminished, Dalton Schultz and Rico Gathers are available to pick up the slack.
Jarwin (ankle) is expected to be active Saturday versus the Rams, Jay Glazer of Fox Sports reports.
The Cowboys won't make it official until they post their inactive list 90 minutes before Saturday's 8:15 PM ET kickoff. However, Jarwin appears to have passed the requisite tests during his pregame workout.
Jarwin (ankle) will participate in a pregame warmup with an expectation that he'll be active for Saturday's wild-card contest with the Rams, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.
After emerging from the Cowboys' wild-card win against the Seahawks with a high-ankle sprain, Jarwin was held out of every practice this week. Subsequently, his availability for the second round was up in the air, but he appears to have a better chance to suit up than Cole Beasley, who has the exact same injury. Jarwin's status will become known about 90 minutes before Saturday's 8:15 PM ET kickoff.
Like veteran wide receiver Cole Beasley, Jarwin is tending to a high-ankle sprain, which held both players out of practice all week. Helman is of the belief Jarwin will be a game-time decision, which likely means the tight end's availability won't be determined until approximately 90 minutes before Saturday's 8:15 PM ET kickoff.
