Cowboys 2018 training camp: Michael Gallup continues strong push for starting WR job

Here are some highlights from today’s practice at The Star.

NFL: Dallas Cowboys at San Francisco 49ers Kelley L Cox-USA TODAY Sports

The Cowboys were back out on the practice fields today for a second consecutive padded practice at The Star.

What a sweet painting of the “214 connection”!

Ezekiel Elliott given a little love to his legion of fans:

Just like we always do, here’s the long list of Cowboys that weren’t expected to do anything:

Travis Frederick’s backup Joe Looney was taking some time out of his day to visit with the fans:

Keep in mind that now is the time for extra precaution, the Cowboys aren’t going to press anyone to practice.

It’s a good sign that Zack Martin is taking part in individuals but Travis Frederick also is on the mend:

So, for the second straight day, the starting offensive line was:

How about that starting defense for your Dallas Cowboys:

One guy who looks to be getting some playing time this Sunday against the Cardinals, WR Deonte Thompson:

The Cowboys were also putting Deonte Thompson out for kick return opportunities:

We’re also likely to see a lot more of LB Joe Thomas, as the Cowboys probably won’t risk Sean Lee:

Alright, let’s get it started with a nice touchdown grab from Rico Gathers, who’s most certainly going to play this Sunday.

It didn’t take long for that starting offensive line to have some trouble with the Cowboys pass rushers:

Ezekiel Elliott is going to put the ball in the end zone, it’s just a fact:

Two catalysts on their respective units, keeping things lighthearted:

Tank Lawrence throwing shade at Madden:

Lawrence also answered a few questions about the state of the defensive line, which looks to be rock solid as of late:

A leader never shies away from getting tough on his men:

Bu he’ll throw in some complimentary things too:

The defense continues to stand strong in goal line drills:

Just like it should be, all receivers that can practice will be getting work:

It was tough on Dak Prescott with limited time but this one was just an ill-fated throw:

Despite some struggles on offense, Mike White chose today to be good. It’s about time as he will be playing a lot over the next two preseason games.

Because it’s our favorite thing to do, it’s Michael Gallup time. He’s been outstanding and gets better every single day:

Of course, Dak Prescott has been working extremely hard on the deep ball, Michael Gallup is “always open”.

That was about it for today’s practice but once again Michael Gallup is earning that star. The Cowboys will make their final preparations for Sunday’s preseason game with the Cardinals.
