Jon Machota of The Athletic believes rookie WR Jalen Tolbert “should be able to immediately compete for a starting spot.” That, of course, would be the WR3 job behind CeeDee Lamb and Michael Gallup, who’s recovering from a January ACL tear. Consider him questionable for Week 1 right now. As for Tolbert, the words of VP of Player Personnel Will McClay speak volumes about the team’s interest. "Tolbert can play multiple spots,” McClay said. “He’s got size, he’s extremely intelligent and the type of player you want to grow in that room. The upside is there because he’s an NFL style receiver, body style, size, ability to find space to be able to play inside and outside, so that versatility made him very attractive to us.” Tolbert’s main competition will come from former Steeler James Washington, who signed just a 1-year deal worth ~$1.2 million.

Cowboys owner Jerry Jones admitted that WR Michael Gallup (knee) is iffy for the start of the season. “Optimistically, I expect him to give us a question mark around the first game," Jones said. "And I see a conversation that says conservatively, you would like to have a couple more games to get him out there.” This is just confirmation considering Gallup tore his ACL on January 2. Drafters shouldn't be expecting to have him for the start of the season. As Dallas' depth chart currently stands, WR James Washington would be in for a big role for however long Gallup is out.

The Cowboys and WR Michael Gallup have agreed to a 5-year extension worth $62.5 million, according to multiple reports. This has been the expected move. The question for Gallup in 2022 will be how soon he can make it back from the ACL tear.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that the Cowboys are "close" to a new deal with impending free agent WR Michael Gallup. This news, of course, comes alongside the expected trade/release of WR Amari Cooper. We'll be curious to see how much Gallup commands in his extension, coming off his Week 17 ACL tear. We'll also see about Gallup's progress through the offseason in judging his 2022 outlook. He certainly carries risk as an early best-ball selection. It at least appears that you should assume he'll remain in Dallas.

WR Michael Gallup is "recovering well" from his torn ACL, according to insider Doug Kyed, and the "current expectation" is that he'll be back to 100% by August. That'd be about 7 months after his injury -- a relatively quick recovery. We'll keep an eye on Gallup's progress this offseason. And we'll see where he signs when he hits the free-agent market next month.

Monday's MRI confirmed the torn ACL in Cowboys WR Michael Gallup's left knee. NFL Network's Ian Rapoport hears that it was a "clean" tear and that Gallup is expected to make a full recovery. Still, the timing of the injury means that Gallup isn't a lock to be ready for the start of the 2022 season. We'll track his rehab.

Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said after Sunday's loss to the Cardinals that WR Michael Gallup is believed to have a torn left ACL. He'll undergo an MRI on Monday to confirm that diagnosis. If it's a torn ACL, Gallup will miss Week 18 and the playoffs and hit free agency in March rehabbing a serious injury. We'll track his rehab and see where he ends up signing. Cedrick Wilson will replace Gallup as Dallas' #3 WR.

Cowboys WR Michael Gallup hurt his left knee on a TD catch in the 2nd quarter of Sunday's game vs. the Cardinals. Stay tuned for an update.

Update: Gallup has been ruled out.

Cowboys HC Mike McCarthy tested positive for COVID and will miss Thursday night's game vs. the Saints, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports. McCarthy is 1 of 8 members of the Cowboys to test positive, Schefter adds. It's unclear how many are players. We'll keep you updated.

Cowboys WR CeeDee Lamb (concussion) is out for today's game vs. the Raiders, NFL Network's Tom Pelissero reports. Lamb has made some progress through the protocol but was always a long shot to get cleared for this Thursday game. With WR Amari Cooper (COVID) also out, Dallas is down to WRs Michael Gallup, Cedrick Wilson, Noah Brown and Malik Turner. TE Dalton Schultz should also play a big role in the passing game today.

Cowboys WR Amari Cooper has landed on the COVID list. He's out for Sunday's game vs. the Chiefs and the Thanksgiving game vs. the Raiders. Cooper's absence should mean target boosts for CeeDee Lamb, Michael Gallup and Dalton Schultz. Cedrick Wilson is the favorite for #3 WR duties, but Noah Brown and Malik Turner might also mix in.

Cowboys WR Michael Gallup (calf) is active for today’s game vs. the Falcons. Consider him a risk/reward WR4 in his first action since Week 1.

The Cowboys are activating WR Michael Gallup from IR, making him eligible to play Sunday against the Falcons, according to . It'll be his 1st game action since straining a calf in Week 1. Gallup will be a risky fantasy prospect in his 1st game back, but his return can only help QB Dak Prescott in what already looked like a prime rebound spot.

Cowboys WR Michael Gallup (calf) was not activated from IR on Saturday and won't play against the Broncos on Sunday. He's been back at practice for a couple of weeks now, so we're guessing he'll return for Week 10. Cedrick Wilson gets at least 1 more game as Dallas' #3 WR.

Cowboys WR Michael Gallup (calf) was not activated from IR on Saturday and won't play vs. the Vikings on Sunday night. Gallup got back on the practice field this week, but NFL Network's Jane Slater reported that he's targeting a Week 9 return.

NFL Network's Jane Slater reports the Cowboys are targeting a Week 9 return for WR Michael Gallup (calf). Gallup was designated to return this week and got back on the practice field Wednesday. But it sounds like Dallas will give him a couple of weeks of work to get his legs back under him. Expect him to miss Sunday night's game vs. the Vikings but return the following weekend vs. the Broncos.

Cowboys WR Michael Gallup (calf) has been designated to return from IR. He's now eligible to practice, but we'll see if he's ready to play vs. the Vikings this weekend. Gallup is about 6.5 weeks removed from what was supposed to be a 3-5 week injury.

Cowboys HC Mike McCarthy said he's "hopeful" that WR Michael Gallup (calf) can return to limited practice ahead of the Week 8 game against the Vikings, according to Michael Gehlken of The Dallas Morning News. We don't yet know if the team believes Gallup had a chance to play in that game. But it's a positive sign for his upcoming return. Dallas gets a Week 7 bye.

Cowboys WR Michael Gallup is expected to be sidelined 3-5 weeks with a calf strain, The Dallas Morning News' Michael Gehlken reports. Gallup figures to land on short-term IR. It's worth noting that Dallas has a Week 7 bye, so it's possible we don't see Gallup again until Week 8. He's not a must-hold in shallower fantasy leagues. WR Cedrick Wilson ran a route on 85% of Dallas' pass plays after Gallup exited Thursday night's opener and is worth a look on waiver wires. Gallup's absence, of course, will also free up targets for WRs Amari Cooper and CeeDee Lamb.
