Tests on Monday showed a break and other damage, according to Garrett, requiring the surgery. But, the Cowboys aren't ruling out Swaim returning this season. The story said Schultz, Gathers and Jarwin have a combined line of 9-121-0 this season.
"I feel like me and Gronkowski got the same kind of run style, play style, so I watch him a lot nowadays," Gathers said. "And Witten, just watching him. I think for a transition player it's about finding out what is comfortable for you and being able to execute your assignments as well as you can."
With Witten retired, Gathers has a chance to see the field this year ... something that hasn't happened over his first two seasons thanks mostly to a concussion. Gathers is also working on his blocking. We currently have Gathers third on the depth chart behind Jarwin and Swaim.
