The Dallas Cowboys won two straight games, including their latest win over the Atlanta Falcons on Sunday. Owner Jerry Jones said that there was a tragedy with one of the players, according to the Fort Worth Star-Telegram, after the game.

Rookie wide receiver Michael Gallup was informed of his brother’s suicide over the weekend while at Mercedes-Benz Stadium. His sister reportedly told him in the locker room.

Gallup is one of eight children, who is the youngest of the bunch. Six of the kids, like himself, were adopted.

He played on Sunday in front of his hometown fans. He was born in Atlanta, Georgia but grew up in Monroe, Georgia.

The 22-year-old was the Cowboys third-round draft pick in the 2018 NFL Draft. He played collegiate football with the Colorado State Rams.

He had just one reception in his homecoming. He had a catch for 10-yards on Sunday.

On the season, Gallup has 16 receptions for 285 yards and a touchdown in five games. His best game of the season so far came in Week 7 against the Washington Redskins when he had three receptions for 81 yards and a touchdown.

He’s only had two games, where he had more than 50 receiving yards in a game. Besides the Redskins game, he also had three receptions for 51 yards in Week 9 against the Tennessee Titans on Monday Night Football.
