The Dallas Cowboys have been without WR3 Michael Gallup since he suffered a calf strain in a Week 1 loss to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Placed on the injured reserve, the fourth-year wideout has now missed his team’s last six games.
That being said, it appears his return to the field could be right around the corner.
Last Monday, the Cowboys designated Gallup to return from the IR — opening the 21-day window for him to return to play. He wasn’t able to return for Week 8’s matchup against the Vikings, but he’s been practicing with the team since last Wednesday.
According to reports from Dallas insider Jon Machota of The Athletic, the Cowboys are “hopeful” that Gallup will be able to return this weekend for a Week 9 contest against the Denver Broncos. The decision will ultimately be made based on his ability to practice throughout the week.

Before his injury in Week 1, Gallup reeled in four receptions for 36 yards on seven targets. In his first three seasons with the Cowboys, the former third-round draft pick logged 2,457 yards and 13 touchdowns.
With Gallup out, Cedrick Wilson has stepped up as Dak Prescott’s third target behind Amari Cooper and CeeDee Lamb.
