Michael Gallup, the Cowboys’ wide receiver, has already received some bad news
For the first 2-3 games of the season, the Dallas Cowboys will most likely be without star wide receiver Michael Gallup.
As expected, the start of the season will be difficult for Dak Prescott and the rest of the Dallas Cowboys offense. This is due to the fact that wide receiver Michael Gallup will not be on the field.
Gallup will most certainly miss the first 2-3 games of the season, according to team vice president Stephen Jones. Obviously, this will hurt the aerial attack, but Gallup is still recovering from an ACL tear he sustained in Week 17.
Cowboys VP Stephen Jones said receiver Michael Gallup could miss two or three games at the beginning of the season.

Michael Gallup has signed a multi-year contract deal
Gallup’s absence from the start of the season comes as no surprise to Dallas fans, since the speedster suffered a significant knee injury late in the previous season.
Dallas, on the other hand, will be hoping Gallup can return sooner rather than later this fall, as No. 1 wideout Amari Cooper is no longer in the mix.
Cooper was acquired by the Cleveland Browns in a trade. All eyes will now be on CeeDee Lamb in 2022 to see whether he can become Prescott’s favorite target. To begin with, Prescott will undoubtedly be on the lookout for lamb early and often in Week 1, especially with Gallup out.
Gallup’s five-year, $62.5 million contract extension demonstrates that the Dallas front office feels he can be a franchise wideout. Cooper will have to improve his game significantly now that he’s in the AFC North, but head coach Mike McCarthy has high hopes for him.
Dallas will miss Gallup in the first few weeks of 2022, but the team’s fans can’t wait to see what he can do once he’s back in the lineup.
