Wide receiver Michael Gallup could return this week for the Cowboys, who can use a boost for their depleted receptive legion.
“It’s 100 yards waiting to happen. And an encounter,” Dallas #1 recipient CeeDee Lamb told USA Today Jori Epstein about Gallup, who hasn’t played since last season due to injury.
“Gallup will be full of reps this week,” Cowboys head coach Mike McCarthy said in a statement. Wednesday press conference. “We will give him every chance to be ready.”
Gallup is recovering from a left ACL injury he sustained in Week 17 last season. He’s been in limited training for the first two weeks of this season. However, his participation in full training this week shows that his strength is starting to return.
This is a positive sign for the Cowboys because their offense should have taken a jerk.
The Cowboys’ wide-reception legion includes rookie Jaylen Tolbert, who is still trying to get to the pro game, and Noah Brown, who is inconsistent and only has a TD pass in hand. five-year career. WR James Washington, a free agent in the off-season, is yet to play because of a fracture in his right foot.
Close-up Dalton Schultz’s condition is unclear after he sprained his right knee on Sunday against the Bengals.
Gallup is a deeper threat than Lamb, who is the recipient of the possession. In four seasons as Cowboy, Gallup averaged 15 yards per catch, topping the team for that period.
That’s good news especially for the backup QB Cooper Rush who needs a weapon. He will start until Dak Prescott returns after breaking his right thumb.
The Cowboys play at the New York Giants on Monday.
