Cowboys wide receiver Michael Gallup is expected to miss three-to-five weeks with a calf injury sustained in the season-opening loss to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, the Dallas Morning News reported Friday.

Gallup had four receptions for 36 yards in the Cowboys’ 31-29 setback on Thursday night.

Amari Cooper and CeeDee Lamb did the majority of the heavy lifting in the season opener. Cooper had 13 catches for 139 yards and two touchdowns, while Lamb added seven receptions for 104 yards and a score.

Cedrick Wilson, who had three catches for 24 yards in the opener, likely will be in for additional playing time when the Cowboys (0-1) visit the Los Angeles Chargers on Sept. 19.

Gallup, 25, has 162 receptions for 2,493 yards and 13 touchdowns in 47 games since being selected by the Cowboys in the third round of the 2018 NFL Draft.
