Geoff Swaim Has Foot Surgery, Could Be Out Until Training Camp | Dallas Cowboys

Dallas Cowboys 0 Comment

FRISCO, Texas – Tight end Geoff Swaim underwent surgery this week for a foot fracture and could be sidelined until training camp.

The injury occurred during a personal workout without Cowboys coaches present. The team’s voluntary offseason program begins in mid-April, and training camp typically begins in mid-to-late August.

Swaim, a seventh-round pick in 2015, emerged as a reliable blocker and receiving option at tight end last season. He caught six passes for 69 yards in the first nine games before a pectoral injury landed him on injured reserve for the rest of the season.

Swaim’s injury left Jason Witten and Gavin Escobar as the only healthy tight ends on the roster. The Cowboys had to adjust their on-the-line blocking in Swaim’s absence, often substituting reserve guard/center Joe Looney as an eligible receiver.

Tight end James Hanna will also be returning from a knee injury that sidelined him all of last season. Rico Gathers, a sixth-round pick last season, was re-signed to the Reserve/Future list after the season. Escobar is a free agent. Read
