Friday PM update: Gallup got in a limited practice on Friday and is listed as questionable. Coach McCarthy believes he will go, so we should expect him to play.

Friday Update: Gallup is still dealing with an illness, and head coach Mike McCarthy wasn’t sure if the wideout would practice on Friday. Regardless, the expectation is that Gallup will play Sunday night against the Colts. Gallup hasn’t done a lot since returning from injury, but the Cowboys will obviously want to be fully healthy for this game if possible.

Thursday update: Gallup is out again on Thursday due to illness, per Michael Gehlken. We’ll see if he can return to practice on Friday. If he can’t go this week, Noah Brown gets a bump, but we’re also waiting to see if James Washington will be taken off I.R to play.

Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Michael Gallup missed practice on Wednesday with an illness. There has been some sort of illness going around the Cowboys roster for the past several weeks, and it hit Gallup and Trevon Diggs this week.

Fantasy football implications for Week 13

It’s unclear how severe the illness is or at what point Gallup will expect to recover, but it’s a safe bet to say that it won’t keep him out of Sunday night’s game against the Indianapolis Colts. He has ample recovery time between Wednesday and Sunday.

Gallup is joined at the wide receiver position by plenty of other talent, including receiving yards leader CeeDee Lamb and Noah Brown, who has the second-most receiving yards this season. Gallup has just 274 receiving yards and a single TD this season after injuries kept him out of several games. He added 63 yards over five receptions in Dallas’ recent win over the New York Giants.
