Dallas wide receiver Michael Gallup took a concerning tumble during a training camp practice on Tuesday.
In his fourth Cowboy training camp, Gallup tried to catch Dak Prescott’s ball in the corner. Gallup was unable to grab the ball, but his momentum kept him moving through the end zone, and he crashed over the fence at an Oxnard training field.
Gallup, who had landed awkwardly on the other fence, walked off the field along with several members of the Dallas training team. According to Ari Meirov, ProFootballFocus, he would return to practice later.

Gallup has recorded 158 receptions, 2,457 yard and 13 touchdowns in three seasons with Cowboys. Despite playing under four different quarterbacks in the past season, Gallup, a 25-year-old WR, managed 843 yards in 2020. He was second only to CeeDee Lamb (935) and Amari Cooper (1114).
Gallup, who is expected to make $2.4million through the 2021 season of his rookie contract, will be entering the last season of his four year rookie contract. The up-and-coming receiver, who has not yet signed an extension contract, could be a great free-agent option after his fourth NFL season.
Gallup would prefer to sign a long-term contract with his current team.
“Obviously, I would love to remain here. I’d love to be in Dallas, love the community, love the city, love the fans, so it’s just up in the air, but I want to be right here,” he said on a recent appearance with Good Morning Football.
Gallup’s performance through the 2021 season is likely to determine his future with Cowboys.
