Gallup has missed the last two games for the Cowboys due to undergoing a medical procedure that trimmed his meniscus. Luckily for Dallas, the second-year wide receiver appears to be nearly 100 percent ahead of their matchup against a talented Packers secondary.
As a rookie in 2018, Gallup failed to get comfortable in the Cowboys offense. The Colorado State product caught just 33 passes for 507 yards and two touchdowns in his rookie campaign last year.
Over the course of the offseason, the young pass-catcher spent countless hours working on getting himself in position to be a reliable target for Dak Prescott. Gallup was able to convert his offseason improvements into training camp and preseason.
Then, in the two regular-season games that he suited up in this season, Gallup was a completely different player than he was in 2018. Altogether, Gallup hauled in 13 receptions for 226 yards this season before he was sidelined with an injury.
With new offensive coordinator Kellen Moore, the Cowboys have begun to throw the ball more. Last week against the New Orleans Saints, it was the first game that Dallas failed to have success putting the ball in the air.
Now, with Gallup being available, the Cowboys passing attack should be at full-strength in Week 5. Even though they may not need to pass the ball as often with Green Bay boasting the 26th ranked run defense.
