The Dallas Cowboys are coming off their first win of the season against the Cincinnati Bengals. In the game, they were short a number of key players like QB Dak Prescott or OL Connor McGovern.

Despite this, they were able to overcome their shortcomings and get their first win of the season, ahead of their Monday Night match against the rival New York Giants.

While Prescott, McGovern, Tarell Basham and (now) Dalton Schultz won’t suit up for the game, the Cowboys may still get reinforcements.

At his press conference Wednesday morning, head coach Mike McCarthy gave a pair of exciting updates. The first being for WR Michael Gallup.

Even though whenever Gallup fully returns to action, it is known he will be on a “pitch count” to start. The Dallas Cowboys are being extra cautious with his return, as it would be almost 10 months following the injury.

Included in the Gallup news is the Cowboys defender who don’s the ‘green dot’ for Dan Quinn’s defense. Safety/Linebacker Jayron Kearse could also return, after suffering a knee injury in week one versus the Buccaneers.

After waiving both WR Dennis Houston and DL John Ridgeway (since then signed by Washington) the belief continues to be one of those spots is for Gallup. Potentially the other to be for OT Jason Peters.

With how the offensive line continues to progress, there might not be as much of a rush to put Peters on the field. Allowing him to fully condition himself.

If these roster spots are indeed for both Gallup and Kearse, and McCarthy’s indications are anything worth noting, it means both the offense and defense are about to get one of their most important players back.

The Dallas Cowboys were able to take down the  defending AFC champions light handed, and now they’re getting back some of their arsenal.
