Gallup tore his ACL in Week 17 but is progressing well in his recovery, according to a source. He’s currently expected to return before the 2022 NFL season.

The 2018 third-round pick out of Colorado State will rejoin CeeDee Lamb, Noah Brown, Simi Fehoko and T.J. Vasher in Dallas’ wide receiver corps. Cedrick Wilson and Malik Turner are both impending free agents.
