On Monday, the Dallas Cowboys learned that wide receiver Michael Gallup would be out for a few weeks due to a knee injury. The second-year wideout underwent arthroscopic knee surgery to repair his meniscus.
Dallas has a favorable schedule coming up so the absence of Gallup shouldn’t greatly affect the team. However, the front office still needs to find potential options to fill out the depth chart.
According to NFL Network insider Ian Rapoport, the Cowboys are working out wide receivers Quincy Adeboyejo and DaMarkus Lodge.
Adeboyejo last played for the Baltimore Ravens in 2017. He’s only 24 years old, and perhaps the Cowboys believe the former Ole Miss product has yet to play his football.
On the other hand, Lodge could be a nice option for Dallas as well. His final season of college football resulted in 65 receptions for 877 yards and four touchdowns.
Given the injury to WR Michael Gallup, the #Cowboys are working out FA WRs Quincy Adeboyejo & DaMarkus Lodge, source said.

Fans in Dallas were hoping for a reunion between the team and Dez Bryant. That doesn’t appear to be happening at this time.
Through the first two weeks of the season, the Cowboys offense has looked dynamic under offensive coordinator Kellen Moore. Expect more firepower this weekend when the NFC East powerhouse hosts the Miami Dolphins.
As for possible roster moves, the Cowboys should have an answer on whether or not they’ll sign another wide receiver very soon.
