The injury bug continues to bite the Dallas Cowboys.

Per The Athletic's Jon Machota, after rookie receiver Jalen Tolbert was ruled out of the Cowboys season-opener last week, two more Dallas players that he was working out with joined him this Sunday.

The NFL world reacted to the news on social media.

"Tolbert must have Rico Gathers route running skills if he can't be activated with this corps," tweeted Tim Roberts.

"Luckily [the] Dallas Cowboys are so deep at the position that have (checks notes) Noah Brown - 44 catches in 5 NFL seasons - as their #2 WR."

"So like why draft him then? When you could of had Skyy or Pickens?" a fan asked.


"I'm just gonna keep saying that the Cowboys' lack of concern about WR was always so weird," tweeted FOX's David Helman. "Getting Gallup back will help. Still might not be enough."

"Pretty damning for a WR-needy team," commented Marcus Mosher.

The Cowboys selected Tolbert in the third-round but he's yet to make his NFL debut.
