Dallas Cowboys tight end Dalton Schultz is set to undergo an MRI after suffering a knee injury late in Sunday’s 20-17 win over the Cincinnati Bengals.

According Michael Gehlken of the Dallas Morning Newsthere is “no concern” about Schultz’s ACL structure, but MRI will reveal more clarity.

Schultz recorded two catches for 18 yards before leaving the game. He was forced to sit out Dallas’ last offensive drive which set up a game-winning 50-yard field goal by Brett Maher. He now has seven receptions for 62 yards without a touchdown in the first two games of the season.

The 26-year-old is playing the 2022 season on a one-year franchise tag, which is worth $10.9 million. Schultz skipped the volunteer portion of the Cowboys’ offseason program before showing up for mandatory minicamp and training camp. He had a career year in 2021, posting 78 catches for 808 yards and eight touchdowns while playing in all 17 games.

An injury to Schultz would be the final blow to a Cowboys team that already has a diminished offense. Starting quarterback Dak Prescott has had thumb surgery and won’t be back anytime soon. Dallas lost receiver James Washington to a broken foot during training camp. Wideout Michael Gallup is still working his way back from a torn ACL suffered last season. Starting left tackle Tyron Smith is out until at least December with a hamstring injury.

The Cowboys are hoping to have Schultz in the roster when they return to action next week against the New York Giants on Monday night football.
