Cowboys receiver Michael Gallup is getting closer to a return. Gallup had limited practices all week that included work in team drills.

He won’t play this week, as he was one of five players the Cowboys have ruled out, but Week 3 is a possibility.

“Michael’s done an excellent job of hitting those (injury rehab) targets, and I think we’re kind of in the final stages here,” coach Mike McCarthy said Friday, via Rob Phillips of the team website.

Gallup tore an ACL in a Jan. 2 game against the Cardinals but did not undergo surgery until Feb. 10 because of swelling.

Quarterback Dak Prescott (right thumb), defensive end Tarell Basham (thigh), safety Jayron Kearse (knee) and left guard Connor McGovern (ankle) did not practice all week and were ruled out for Sunday.

  1. That’s surprising because Dr. Jerry was expected to use his magic healing powers to will injured players back on the field.

  2. so i guess when jerry said he would have played last week if it were the super bowl, he wasn’t very accurate. probably won’t be too accurate about tyron smith or dak either.

    but as jerry the gambler knows, when you hold bad cards, sometimes a bluff is all you got…..

  3. What about Gallup not playing this week makes Jerry’s comment about his availability if it were the superbowl false?

    Week 2 isn’t even in the same realm of importance

  4. Cincinnati only has a chance with Dak out. This is totally a gift for the Bungles. Joe may only throw three interceptions this time.
