Cowboys WR Michael Gallup expected to play in Week 5 vs. Packers
The Dallas Cowboys have an intriguing game ahead against the Green Bay Packers. While they have the talent to succeed against Green Bay, Dak Prescott will still love to have plenty of passing options.
He’s definitely happy that Micahel Gallup is now ready to play after sitting out the last two weeks to injury.
Adam Schefter confirmed the wideout’s return to active duty for the Cowboys:

This is great news for a Dallas team that endured a narrow loss to the New Orleans Saints. He’s going to be an important playmaker for Prescott after his impressive start to the season.
However, it’s still impressive to see Gallup notch 158 yards in seven catches in the season opener. It was also great to see him notch 68 receiving yards on six receptions in WEek 2. While none of his catches ended up in a touchdown, it still showcased his growth as a wideout that the Cowboys can rely on.
While the Cowboys have one of the best offenses in the NFL, they’re still facing a giant obstacle in the Green Bay Packers. The short of it is that both sides are quite even, and the little things will determine who will win this game.
And with Gallup’s return, Dak Prescott and the Cowboys now have more avenues to move the chains and complete their touchdowns. If everything goes their way, they will enjoy a superb game against the Packers.
