Cowboys Provide Positive Update on Michael Gallup Tuesday

The Cowboys cut down the roster to 80 players Tuesday afternoon, and did not get moved to the physically unable to perform list (PUP), which would have created a free roster spot.

Dallas has kept the possibility open that Gallup might make the initial and have the chance to be activated before week five. This roster cutdown deadline is in less than a week, on August 30. Gallup tore his ACL in last season but was recently seen running routes and catching passes from , and per yesterday, he has had no setbacks.

If Gallup can stay off the list, he could return at any point and not be required to sit a least the first four games. Although not surprising, this was still a move that I kept my eye on. Gallup already ruled himself out for week one but did not go into the depth of when he might return, but staying off the PUP list could be a win for the Cowboys.

The young receivers will be needed to produce even after Gallup returns. Gallup will resume the WR2 role behind Lamb whenever he does come back and allow Tolbert and Brown to create favorable matchups against the . If the Cowboys keep Gallup on the 53-man roster next week, could we see a guy like Houston or someone similar bumped off, and if so, who would it be? I will be shocked if they don't keep every single WR in the room.
