Cowboys' Michael Gallup (knee) seeing "very smooth" rehab

Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Michael Gallup's rehabilitation process has been successful thus far, according to head coach Mike McCarthy.

What It Means:

"He looks excellent," said the former Packers leader. "He's hit every target. His rehab is going smooth. Just staying on the plan." Cowboys owner Jerry Jones also said that if Week 1 were the Super Bowl, Gallup would have clearance to play. It's more good news for the 5th-year pro, who was able to stay off the PUP list in camp and make the initial 53-man roster without any designations. While Gallup may not necessarily be ready for the season-opener against Tampa Bay, he'll be back on the field before long. Until Gallup returns, Jalen Tolbert and Dennis Houston could see more work.

Our models currently project Gallup for 59.95 catches on 96.12 targets for 741.29 yards and 5.79 touchdowns this season.
