He will likely lobby for playing time in Week 5.

Malik Turner will be able to suit up and be on the field for Week 5. He made his first appearance for the 2021 season during Week 4. 

Michael Gallup is still going to be sidelined for Week 5. He has spent four weeks on the injured reserve list, but Coach McCarthy is not expecting him to be playing in Week 6 either.

Gallup will be a free agent after the 2021 season wraps up. 

Jaylon Smith released from the Cowboys

The Cowboys organization made a tough decision to release Jaylon Smith. He had to overcome a severe knee injury when the Cowboys drafted him. They had watched him persevere through physical therapy and rehabilitation. Jerry Jones had described him as a warrior. Smith was a Pro Bowler in 2018, and he led the Cowboys in tackles for two seasons. After the release, Smith has joined the Green Bay Packers.

Trevon Diggs #NYGvsDAL
