Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Michael Gallup, who wasselected in the third round of the 2018 NFL Draft, tore his ACL and appeared in only nine games during the 2021 season. Last year, he was limited to just 39 passes for 424 yards and four touchdowns. 

The team also recently restructured his contract, freeing up an additional several million dollars worth of valuable cap space.

Right now, the Cowboys are in the midst of OTA's, and according to reports from Cowboys media members, Gallup is looking good.

"I think Michael's very important," said head coach Mike McCarthy ahead of Thursday's practice at The Star in Frisco. "I think the biggest thing for Michael, and he wants it too, he just wants to have a healthy season. He looks good. This is really the first time, in my time here, that he's had a full offseason program. He's definitely very important."

And a healthy Gallup can only be a good thing for quarterback Dak Prescott.

"The guy was coming off of an injury last year, everybody understands that," said Prescott. "And for him to get in this offseason and get his body right, and starting to come back into who Michael Gallup is and starting to feel himself. I think you saw that right there — doing it on a couple of plays consecutively. That's a guy I've got a lot of trust in.

"I know who he is and, more importantly, how he works and comes to work each and every day to get better. He's getting his feet under him and he's going to be better."

During the 2022 NFL season, Gallup racked up 424 receiving yards along with four touchdowns on 39 catches. In the four years that he's played in the NFL, he's been able to average a total of 53 receptions for 819 yards and four touchdowns.
