WR Michael Gallup & DT Trysten Hill Rejoin Cowboys Active Roster

The are getting back two former starters this week from the injured lists. has been reactivated after spending eight weeks on and will finally return from an ACL in 2020.

Gallup suffered a calf strain in Week 1 against Tampa Bay and has been out ever since. WIth and to rely on, plus strong play from as WR3, Gallup has been given plenty of time to fully recover.

Hill tore an ACL last October and missed the remainder of the season. He's been on PUP since the start of and is now ready to make his 2021 debut.

After an awful effort last week in their loss to the Broncos, the Cowboys should be bolstered by Gallup's return. While there are lots of mouths for to feed, he's always had a strong chemistry with Michael and especially in clutch moments.

Some of those failed 3rd and 4th-down conversions we saw against Denver might not have happened if Prescott had had Gallup to throw to. Now the Cowboys will have all three heads of their WR monster to utilize.

Trysten Hill's role on the isn't as solidified but there's arguably more need for him. is still out from a elbow dislocation and is currently on IR with a triceps injury.

Dallas has enjoyed strong play from rookie so far in 2021 and seen contributions from guys like and . Hill will have to prove himself worth of cutting into their , but at the very least provides another talented young body in the rotation.

After a difficult rookie year in 2019, the former 2nd-Round pick was looking much better to start last season. He started all five games and was making disruptive plays from inside before the knee injury cut things short.

Hopefully the returns of Michael Gallup and Trysten Hill help make both side of the ball stronger for the Cowboys. Tomorrow's game against the is now a critical one; Dallas needs to prove last week a fluke and they're still a legitimate contender.
