Mike McCarthy’s team has a nice policy of insurance in case they need wide receiver help later in the season.
Another good news is that Michael Gallup will be receiving a full practice workload this week. If everything goes according to plan, Gallup will be ready for Week 3 against the New York Giants.
Two weeks of rough times have finally seen the Cowboys’ receiving team move in the right direction.
