Player Outlook
With Amari Cooper shipped off to Cleveland, Gallup gets an opportunity to be Dak Prescott's No. 2 receiver once he's fully recovered from the torn ACL that ended his 2021 campaign. Gallup's injury happened in Week 17, so it's unfair to expect him to be full speed to start the season, but it may not be long after that. Assuming he doesn't start the year on PUP, Gallup should be drafted in the Round 10 range.

  • Cowboys' Michael Gallup: Working on agility

    Gallup (knee) was spotted running and cutting on the side at Monday's practice, Michael Gehlken of The Dallas Morning News reports. Due to his status on the active/PUP list, Gallup hasn't been cleared to take part in practice, instead focusing on agility drills as he draws closer to returning from the torn ACL he sustained in his left knee Week 17 of last season. He told Jon Machota of The Athletic in late July that he isn't optimistic he'll be healthy by Week 1 this year, noting, "We got a little ways to go. It's gotta get a little bit stronger." With no clarity yet on Gallup's timetable to return and James Washington sidelined 6-to-10 weeks due to a broken foot suffered last Monday, rookie Jalen Tolbert and Noah Brown will operate as the next wide receivers up behind unquestioned No. 1 CeeDee Lamb.

  • Cowboys' Michael Gallup: Week 1 return unlikely

    Gallup (knee) acknowledged Thursday that at this time he doesn't view being ready to play Week 1 as a realistic possibility, Jon Machota of The Athletic reports. With that in mind, the wideout -- who is on the active/PUP list as he bounces back from ACL surgery -- doesn't have a precise timetable for his return to game action. "We got a little ways to go," Gallup noted Thursday. As long as he's unavailable, look for Jalen Tolbert and James Washington to see added reps behind Dallas' top healthy wideout CeeDee Lamb.

  • Cowboys' Michael Gallup: On track in rehab process

    Cowboys head coach Mike McCarthy said Wednesday that Gallup (knee) "has not missed a target yet" and is now in the "fourth quarter" of his rehab process, Michael Gehlken of The Dallas Morning News reports. Dallas still haven't commented on a timeline for Gallup's return to the field, but everything coming from the team has been optimistic since this spring. The timing of the injury nonetheless presents a challenge for Gallup being available for Week 1, as he was forced to wait until February to undergo surgery for a torn ACL. He opens training camp on the active/PUP list along with the other players that aren't ready to practice, but that doesn't mean Gallup will remain there for the regular season, which would rule him out for the first six weeks. The Cowboys seemingly think he has a chance to contribute early in the season, even if it isn't in Weeks 1 or 2.

  • Cowboys' Michael Gallup: Lands on PUP list

    The Cowboys placed Gallup (knee) on the active/PUP list Wednesday, Todd Archer of reports. Gallup's status for Week 1 is still in question, so it's not much of a surprise to see him begin training camp on the PUP list, which means he's unable to practice. The 26-year-old wideout can come off the PUP list at any point in training camp if deemed healthy, though the Cowboys seem unlikely to rush him back on the field at less than 100 percent after having recently signed him to a five-year extension. Jalen Tolbert, James Washington (foot) and Noah Brown (hamstring) could handle added reps behind CeeDee Lamb as long as Gallup remains sidelined.

  • Cowboys' Michael Gallup: Week 1 status TBD

    Cowboys owner Jerry Jones hinted Monday that Gallup (knee) isn't a lock to be available for Week 1 action, Michael Gehlken of The Dallas Morning News reports. The Cowboys clearly have confidence in Gallup's long-term prospects, having recently signed the wideout to a five-year deal, reportedly worth up to $62.5 million. However, Jones acknowledged that Gallup, who tore his ACL this past January, may not be 100 percent by the time the team's season opener rolls around. "Optimistically, I expect him to give us a question mark around the first game," Jones noted Monday. "And I see a conversation that says conservatively, you would like to have a couple more games to get him out there." Once Gallup is ready play, he and CeeDee Lamb will head Dallas' wideout corps, with Amari Cooper no longer in the mix, but if Gallup ends up out or limited early on this season, added opportunities would be available for James Washington and Noah Brown.

  • Cowboys' Michael Gallup: Stays in Big D on five-year deal

    Gallup (knee) signed a five-year, $62.5 million contract extension with the Cowboys on Sunday. Gallup had been trending toward a deal to remain with the Cowboys since early March, and he'll avoid free agency with a deal that will keep him in Dallas through the 2026 season. The 26-year-old sustained a clean ACL tear in early January, but there's hope that he'll be cleared for game action in time for the start of the regular season. Gallup appeared in nine games during the 2021 campaign and secured 35 of 62 targets for 445 yards and two touchdowns. Once he's fully healthy, he's in line to serve as the Cowboys' clear No. 2 receiver behind CeeDee Lamb after the team traded Amari Cooper to the Browns on Saturday.

  • Cowboys' Michael Gallup: Reportedly close to re-signing

    The Cowboys and Gallup (knee) are reportedly working on a deal to keep the pending free agent with the team, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports. Schefter's sources indicate that an agreement is considered close, with the latest on Gallup's chances of landing a new deal with Dallas arriving in the wake of a report that the team is prepared to move on from fellow pass-catcher Amari Cooper. In such a scenario, the Cowboys would free up needed cap space, some of which could go toward re-signing Gallup. Though the wideout is coming off a torn ACL suffered late last season, Michael Gehlken of The Dallas Morning News previously indicated that there is some optimism that the 26-year-old could be ready for start of the 2022 campaign.

  • Cowboys' Michael Gallup: Knee surgery on tap

    Gallup is slated to undergo surgery Feb. 10 to repair the torn ACL in his left knee, Michael Gehlken of The Dallas Morning News reports. Gallup is exactly one month removed from suffering the injury, and the aforementioned procedure will be overseen by team physician Dan Cooper. The Cowboys are optimistic that the fourth-year wide receiver will be healthy by Week 1 of the 2022 season, but for whom the upcoming unrestricted free agent will be playing remains far from certain. The team can work out a long-term deal with Gallup before he hits the open market March 16, at which point the entire league can negotiate with him.

  • Cowboys' Michael Gallup: Hasn't had surgery yet

    Cowboys head coach Mike McCarthy revealed Wednesday that Gallup (knee) hasn't yet had surgery to repair his torn ACL, Michael Gehlken of The Dallas Morning News reports. The delay in his procedure isn't out of the ordinary, as it often takes a few weeks for knee swelling to subside after an ACL injury before doctors are comfortable operating, even when in the case where it's a "clean" ligament tear like Gallup's. As of Wednesday, it's been two and a half weeks since Gallup suffered the injury in a Week 17 loss to Arizona. Still, the timing of his ACL tear puts Gallup in serious danger of missing the start of the 2022 campaign, a major complication as he's scheduled for unrestricted free agency this spring.

  • Cowboys' Michael Gallup: Officially hits injured reserve

    Dallas placed Gallup (knee) on injured reserve Tuesday, Jon Machota of The Athletic reports. Gallup's move to IR was fully expected after the Cowboys confirmed the receiver suffered a torn ACL in his left knee during Sunday's loss to the Cardinals. The injury will sideline Gallup through the entirety of Dallas' run through the postseason and leaves his availability for training camp and the start of the 2022 season up in the air. CeeDee Lamb and Amari Cooper sit as the clear top two wideouts with Gallup sidelined, while Cedrick Wilson is expected to step into a larger role moving forward as the No. 3 receiver.

  • Cowboys' Michael Gallup: Torn ACL confirmed

    Gallup underwent an MRI on Monday that confirmed he suffered a clean ACL tear in Sunday's loss to the Cardinals, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports. Gallup will miss the remainder of the season as a result of his injury, but he's expected to make a full recovery. The 25-year-old appeared in eight games for the Cowboys during the 2021 campaign and secured 35 of 62 targets for 445 yards and two touchdowns. Gallup is slated to become a free agent during the offseason after spending his first four professional seasons in Dallas.

  • Cowboys' Michael Gallup: Torn ACL feared

    Cowboys team owner Jerry Jones said the team believes Gallup has a torn ACL, and he's scheduled to get an MRI on Monday to confirm the injury, Michael Gehlken of the Dallas Morning News reports. A torn ACL would not only knock Gallup out for the remainder of this season, but it would also most likely sideline him for most or all of next season as well -- awful timing for the pending free agent. It's a tough break for Gallup, who suffered the injury while scoring a 21-yard touchdown in the second quarter. Cedrick Wilson -- who scored a touchdown in the fourth quarter -- will feature in three-receiver sets alongside CeeDee Lamb and Amari Cooper moving forward. Gallup finishes the season with 35 catches for 445 yards and two touchdowns.

  • Cowboys' Michael Gallup: Injures left knee Sunday

    Gallup won't return to Sunday's game against the Cardinals due to a left knee injury, Calvin Watkins of The Dallas Morning News reports. Gallup got the Cowboys on the scoreboard just before halftime with a leaping 21-yard touchdown, but he seemed to hurt himself when he planted his left leg in the moment preceding the catch. Per Michael Gehlken of The Dallas Morning News, the team's medical staff conducted the ACL test on Gallup's left knee before he required assistance to get to the sideline and eventually the locker room. Considering he was ruled out shortly thereafter, Gallup's fate already may be known, but the nature of the injury hasn't been confirmed. Cedrick Wilson, Noah Brown and Malik Turner figure to mix into the offense more moving forward alongside starters CeeDee Lamb and Amari Cooper.

  • Cowboys' Michael Gallup: Catches two passes in win

    Gallup secured two of five targets for 53 yards in Sunday's 56-14 win over Washington. Gallup didn't necessarily have a huge game Sunday, but his five targets were a promising sight as the Cowboys offense got back on track against Washington. In fact, the 25-year-old wideout has not seen fewer than five targets in any of the eight games he's played this season. Always a threat for a big play, Gallup could be hard to trust in the fantasy playoffs with so many mouths to feed in Dallas. The Cowboys will host the Cardinals in Week 17.

  • Cowboys' Michael Gallup: Three grabs in Sunday's win

    Gallup caught three of five targets for 32 yards in Sunday's win over the Giants. He finished third on the Cowboys in catches, targets and yards behind Dalton Schultz and CeeDee Lamb on an afternoon in which there was little pressure on the offense to air it out. Gallup has caught at least three passes in six straight games since returning to the lineup from a calf injury, giving him a solid floor heading into a Week 16 rematch with Washington.

  • Cowboys' Michael Gallup: Efficiency lags

    Gallup caught five passes for 60 yards on nine targets against Washington on Sunday. Gallup's nine targets ranked ahead of Amari Cooper (seven), and barely behind CeeDee Lamb (10). It's unfortunate that Gallup couldn't capitalize with better returns on the workload, but the Washington defense made it hard on the athletic wideout and quarterback Dak Prescott. Dallas faces the Giants on the road in Week 15, and if Gallup's recent target rate holds up, he could see some big-play opportunities in that setting.

  • Cowboys' Michael Gallup: Athletic TD grab in win

    Gallup brought in five of nine targets for 36 yards and a touchdown in the Cowboys' 27-17 win over the Saints on Thursday night. Gallup made a trademark acrobatic touchdown grab in right corner of the end zone with just under a minute remaining in the first quarter to cap off an 80-yard scoring march and put the first points of the night on the board. The fourth-year wideout now encouragingly has three straight five-catch efforts on a total of 27 targets heading into a Week 14 road matchup versus Washington a week from Sunday.

  • Cowboys' Michael Gallup: Tops century mark in OT loss

    Gallup caught five of eight targets for 106 yards in a 36-33 overtime loss to the Raiders on Thanksgiving. With Amari Cooper (COVID-19) and CeeDee Lamb (concussion) both out of action, Gallup was the Cowboys' de facto No. 1 wideout, although it took a little while for him and Dak Prescott to get on the same page Thursday. The 100-yard performance was Gallup's first of the season, but his role is likely to diminish in Week 13 against the Saints with at least Cooper, and possibly both teammates, expected back in the lineup.

  • Cowboys' Michael Gallup: Role increases Sunday

    Gallup caught five of 10 targets for 44 yards in Sunday's 19-9 loss to Kansas City. With Amari Cooper (COVID-19) unavailable and CeeDee Lamb leaving the game early with a concussion, Gallup ended up leading the Cowboys in targets, although Dak Prescott didn't get enough time in the pocket to stretch the field and let routes develop. Dallas faces a short week before facing the Raiders on Thanksgiving, potentially leaving Gallup as the team's No. 1 wideout in Week 12.

  • Cowboys' Michael Gallup: Three catches in return

    Gallup (calf) caught three of five targets for 42 yards in Sunday's 43-3 win over Atlanta. Gallup returned from IR for his first appearance since the season opener. He ranked third among Dallas' wide receivers in yardage behind CeeDee Lamb (94) and Amari Cooper (51), so Gallup slotted into his customary role as the team's No. 3 option at the position. Lamb exited with an arm bruise after scoring two touchdowns, but the injury is believed to be minor, so Gallup's spot on the depth chart should remain unchanged in Week 11 against the Chiefs.
