Cowboys tight end Dalton Schultz will “avoid significant time” following Monday’s MRI results that confirmed that he had suffered a right-side PCL injury, according the Dallas Morning News.
Schultz’s status for Week 3 against Giants is not known but it is good news for a Dallas team already without quarterback Dak Preston. Schultz sustained the injury on Sunday in Cowboys’ victory over Cincinnati 20-17.
Dalton Schultz was quiet before his injury. He only recorded two catches for 18 yards in the Bengals game. He is a key part of the offense’s future, having accumulated 808 yards and eight touchdowns for his career and being awarded a franchise tag in this offseason.
Dallas also has two rookie tight ends Jake Ferguson, and Peyton Hendershot. However, neither player has caught in the first two games of this season. Schultz could still be called upon to play if necessary.
On Monday, the Giants and Cowboys will face off in New York at 7:15 PM CT.
According to reports, the Dallas Cowboys hope that wide receiver Michael Gallup will be able to return to action in Week 3 against the New York Giants. Gallup injured his ACL in January last season. He has been trying to get back to the No. 1 position. Cowboys offense, 2 receiver.
“Cowboys wide receiver Michael Gallup (ACL) is trending toward a return next Monday at Giants. ‘We’re going to try to give him a full slate this week’ in practice, coach Mike McCarthy said. Whenever Gallup makes season debut, he is not expected to see his usual workload off the bat,” detailed Dallas Morning News‘ Michael Gehlken.
This news is great for Dallas fans and the ailing Cowboys offense. Gallup will spread the field for CeeDee lamb. In Week 1, the Cowboys offense failed to score a touchdown against Tampa Bay before Dak Preston was injured. Last week, Cooper Rush led Cowboys to two touchdown drives to begin the game. This was aided by a tremendous lift from Noah Brown who scored his first touchdown of his career in the victory over Cincinnati.
