The Dallas Cowboys will be looking to pick up their third consecutive win this Sunday, and now, it appears key contributors will be in action.
Trevon Diggs and Michael Gallup, who have both battled an illness this week that cost them multiple days of practice, are expected to play for the Cowboys against the Colts, according to head coach Mike McCarthy.

Several other Cowboys players have been dealing with illnesses over the last few weeks, including starting right tackle Terence Steele. However, McCarthy added that all hands should be on deck against the Colts despite the recent illness issues.
“I don’t think anyone is a threat to miss on Sunday,” said McCarthy.
Diggs, although the interception numbers have dipped, has locked down multiple top-flight wide receivers this season, and his 13 passes defended rank second in the NFL. Gallup is looking more like the receiver he was before his ACL tear, and Steele is having the best season of his career.
The Cowboys can’t afford to take their foot off of the gas with the NFC East still up for grabs and playoff positioning taking shape. Having these three on Sunday and going forward is just what the Cowboys need.
