However, Michael Gallup could miss several games. Wide receivers, who are constantly required to make quick decisions running routes, can have trouble with knee injuries. The Cowboys don’t need to panic as they have a lot of talented receivers.
Gallup should be back in the starting lineup when he is ready. Dallas will still have options. Jalen Tolbert, a rookie, has shown promise during the offseason. James Washington may also be a potential player. While the Cowboys will be fine without Michael Gallup, they will see a huge boost in their passing game when he returns.
Gallup is being closely monitored by the Cowboys, who will be monitoring his knee to make sure he returns to 100 percent.
