Cowboys training camp practice: Jalen Tolbert, Michael Gallup have good days

With CeeDee Lamb taking a day off, Michael Gallup and Jalen Tolbert picked up the slack.

The Dallas Cowboys kicked off their first (pre-season) game week of the 2023 season with their eighth practice from Oxnard this afternoon. For today’s star of the day, we’re giving the award to a pair of Cowboys’ wideouts. Two players who the Cowboys desperately need to have productive seasons in 2023, Michael Gallup and Jalen Tolbert, made some nice catches during today’s practice.

Gallup came up big in a “Mojo Moment” getting open underneath and hauling in a first-down reception.

Dallas also put on display something we haven’t seen before, giving Gallup a chance on a reverse.

Tolbert, lined up against cornerback Stephon Gilmore, made an impressive catch on a slant overcoming good coverage from the veteran.

Another angle of Tolbert’s impressive grab.

If you were making a list of the players who could take the Cowboys to the next level with a good season this year, Gallup and Tolbert would be right near the top of the list. With the acquisition of Brandin Cooks, if Gallup can bounce back to his pre-injury form or Tolbert can play up to his potential, the Cowboys could have one of the best receiver groups in the league. Both Gallup and Tolbert have shown plenty of encouraging signs early on. Let’s hope it’s a sign of things to come once the regular season comes around.
