Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Michael Gallup “tends to” make his 2022 NFL season debut in Week 3 against the New York Giants, per Michael Gehlken of the Dallas Morning News.

Head coach Mike McCarthy discussed Gallup’s continued recovery from a torn ACL on Monday.

“We’ll try to give him a full list this week,” he told reporters.

Gallup was injured in Dallas’ second-to-last game of the 2021 regular season. The timing and severity of his injury left him in a race against time to be ready for Week 1.

In March, Executive Vice President Stephen Jones recognized the 26-year-old would likely be out for the first two or three games. In July, Gallup said it was “not a reasonable possibility” to expect him to be on the pitch for the opening game.

The Cowboys badly need the 26-year-old whenever he finally gets the nod.

Dallas didn’t do much to replace Amari Cooper, who left a clear void in the passing game. And after two weeks, his starting quarterback and starting tight end have already suffered injuries.

Dak Prescott is recovering from thumb surgery, which has a four to six week recovery period. According to ESPN Todd ArcherDalton Schultz is also struggling with a “PCL problem” in his right knee.

Gallup will need to be brought back into the offense a bit, but any help he can provide will benefit the passing attack.
