Dak Prescott, Dallas Cowboys quarterback, is very concerned about Michael Gallup’s injury. Gallup missed most of the season due to a calf injury. Gallup returned in Week 17 but suffered a devastating ACL tear that ended his season.
“It’s very tough,” Prescott said, as posted by Jon Machota of the Athletic. “That’s a guy that I love. You can’t get a better teammate than MG. I’m sick about it.”
Ian Rapoport , an NFL insider, revealed that the 2018 third-rounder was injured in an ACL tear during the Cardinals game.
“Cowboys WR Michael Gallup suffered a clean ACL tear, source said following the MRI,” tweeted Rapoport. “His season is over, but he’ll make a full recovery.”
Prescott was able to get him back from an injury two months earlier. He said, “That is a guy that I have always trusted.”
Gallup finished the season with 35 receptions, 445 yards, and two touchdowns.
Michael Gallup, a pending free agent might have played his last game for the Cowboys. The former Colorado State star might look elsewhere for more of the cowboys’ pie that’s packed with crowded receiving corps. He is currently in the final year of his rookie, 4-year deal worth $3.52million. He had 843 yards and 59 catches last year.
On Sunday, Dak Prescott completed 24-of 38 passes for 226 yards with three touchdowns. However, the team lost to Arizona. Dallas’ offense was limited to just 301 yards and 22 points. The Cowboys’ rush attack was ineffective, with the team finishing with just 45 yards total on the ground.
Prescott met with media after the Cowboys’ defeat, dropping them to 11-5 for the season. He shared his thoughts about the loss. While Prescott admitted that he was disappointed, the quarterback made it clear that his thoughts are not discouraged.
“Damn sure not discouraged,” Prescott said, as posted in a tweet by Michael Gehlken of the Dallas Morning News.
Prescott, who has thrown for 4,154 yards with 32 touchdowns and 10 interceptions this season, will be closing the Cowboys regular season against the Philadelphia Eagles (9-7). Kickoff is set for 8:15 p.m. ET on ABC and ESPN.
