According to Rapoport, the surgery will be done to trim his meniscus and he’s expected to be out two to four weeks. There is no other structural damage to his knee other than the meniscus tear, so his return should be quick.
The damage to Gallup’s knee was revealed in an MRI he had earlier on Monday.
Gallup is thriving in Kellen Moore’s offensive scheme through two weeks, as he led the Cowboys in targets with eight on Sunday. He missed a portion of the fourth quarter due to a knee issue.
Gallup is in his second year after being selected in the third round of the 2018 NFL Draft by the Cowboys. In May 2018, he signed a four-year contract with Dallas.
He’s already accumulated 15 targets through two games with 13 receptions and 226 yards. Last season, he played all 16 games for the Cowboys and finished with 33 receptions and 507 yards with two touchdowns.
