Gallup caught four of eight targets for 49 yards in Sunday's loss to the Giants. The third-year receiver saw generally increased target volume after the Cowboys' Week 10 bye as he showed some chemistry with Andy Dalton, but for the most part, Gallup's chances of matching or improving on his 2019 breakout evaporated when Dak Prescott went down with a season-ending ankle injury Week 5. Gallup's disappointing campaign was highlighted by a lackluster 8.0 YPT -- 1.8 yards less than the season before. Assuming Prescott is back and healthy in 2021, Gallup will be a strong candidate for a rebound, even as part of a crowded WR group alongside Amari Cooper and CeeDee Lamb.
Gallup caught six of eight targets for 121 yards and two touchdowns in Sunday's 37-17 win over the Eagles. The Cowboys passing game re-discovered its early-season form in this one, and Gallup capitalized with his most productive outing of the season, leading Dallas in catches and targets while tying Amari Cooper for the team lead in receiving yards. It's been a mostly disappointing campaign overall for Gallup, but the third-year wideout could wipe all that away with another big effort in Week 17's clash with the Giants, as both teams remain alive in the hunt for the NFC East title.
Gallup (hip) was a full participant in Wednesday's practice, Michael Gehlken of The Dallas Morning News reports. The hip pointer Gallup sustained in Sunday's win over the 49ers was initially expected to limit his practice reps this week, but the third-year wideout has apparently progressed faster in his recovery than anticipated. So long as he avoids a setback in practice the next two days, Gallup looks on track to enter this weekend's matchup with the Eagles minus an injury designation. Gallup has drawn five or more targets in seven straight contests.
Gallup (hip) will be a limited participant at practice Wednesday, Todd Archer of ESPN.com reports. The report notes that head coach Mike McCarthy believes that Gallup will be able to play Sunday against the Eagles. The wideout's ability to practice Wednesday -- albeit in a limited fashion -- is a positive indicator toward that end.
Gallup (hip) has avoided serious injury and hasn't yet been ruled out to face the Eagles on Sunday, Michael Gehlken of The Dallas Morning News reports. Gallup was forced out of last weekend's win over the 49ers due to a strained hip, but not before hauling in three catches for 26 yards and a score. The third-year pro has seen 35 targets in five games since the Cowboys' bye. If Gallup misses any time, Noah Brown, Cedrick Wilson and Malik Turner will all be candidates to handle more work behind CeeDee Lamb and Amari Cooper.
