Gallon suffered a left knee sprain during a scrimmage a week ago Monday.
"I am feeling a lot better than I did and I am getting back to where I was," Gallon said. "I have been going to rehab, running around (conditioning).
"I was hoping to come back this week, but the trainers told me to hold off. I may get back (by Saturday) but probably next week."
Gallon, a former standout from Lincoln High School, had made a favorable impression this preseason.
Gallon also was listed second team on kickoff coverage. His injury was somewhat of a fluke.
"I was on kick coverage, I was back peddling and something didn't feel right," Gallon said.
Following practice tonight, Gallon is hoping to be able to watch his Lincoln Trojans open their season at home against Pensacola.
