The Cowboys managed to get out of the first preseason game without any real injuries, but the second game hasn’t been so kind. After defensive tackle Neville Gallimore exited with an arm injury, tight end Sean McKeon went down with an ankle injury, needing the cart to take him to the locker room after attempting to walk on the injury.

McKeon is out for the remainder of the game but the details of the ankle injury are yet to be known. After the injury to starting tight end Blake Jarwin in 2020, McKeon earned some playing time as an undrafted rookie, mainly on special teams.

In the 2021 training camp, McKeon has impressed and was trending towards earning a roster spot and real playing time alongside Jarwin and Dalton Schultz. The Michigan product had two catches for 26 yards against the Steelers in the Hall of Fame Game and could be out for an extended time.
