Dallas Cowboys tight end Dalton Schultz is reportedly set to return from a knee injury for Sunday's Week 4 game against the Washington Commanders.
The fifth-year tight end missed Monday night's win over the New York Giants because of the PCL issue. He'd recorded nine catches for 80 yards through Dallas' first two games.
Schultz, a 2018 fourth-round pick out of Stanford, enjoyed a breakout season in 2021 with 78 receptions for 808 yards and eight touchdowns, all of which represented career highs.
His Week 3 absence was part of an up-and-down start to the campaign for the Cowboys (2-1), who remain without quarterback Dak Prescott after he suffered a thumb injury in the team's season-opening loss to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
The 26-year-old Utah native previously discussed how battling through adversity has been a key talking point for the organization.
"The way I see it, it's just a storm," Schultz told reporters. "You've got two choices: You can run away from the storm or you can run right into it. I know myself included and everybody in our locker room is going to run right into that motherf--ker. That's just our approach."
Getting him back alongside CeeDee Lamb and Michael Gallup, who's set to make his season debut after recovering from a torn ACL, will give fill-in quarterback Cooper Rush a full complement of weapons for the NFC East clash.
That's a promising sign as Dallas prepares to face a Washington defense that's struggled in the early going, ranking 26th in total defense (402.7 yards allowed per game) and 28th in scoring defense (27.3 points allowed per game) during its 1-2 start.
Sunday's kickoff at AT&T Stadium is scheduled for 1 p.m. ET on Fox.
