Cowboys WR Michael Gallup to miss 2-4 weeks with knee injury
The emergence of Michael Gallup has been one of the main reasons the Dallas Cowboys’ offense is off to a roaring start this season, but the second-year wide receiver could be unavailable for the next month after he suffered a knee injury on Sunday.
Gallup is scheduled to undergo arthroscopic surgery to trim a torn meniscus, Ian Rapoport of NFL Media reports. He will miss 2-4 weeks.

Gallup, a third-round pick last year, has shown outstanding chemistry with Dak Prescott thus far in 2019. He has 13 catches on 15 targets through two games and is averaging a whopping 17.4 yards per reception.
The Cowboys have looked explosive on offense and should have enough weapons to overcome the loss of Gallup, especially against the lowly Miami Dolphins on Sunday. Dallas takes on a New Orleans Saints team the following week that will be without Drew Brees, so the timing of Gallup’s injury actually could be a lot worse.
