Dak Prescott Receives Critical Status Update Following Calf Injury

Just last weekend, Dak Prescott faced an injury scare after beating the New England Patriots in overtime. The Cowboys quarterback was favoring his calf, and he needed help to get back into the locker room. The following day, Prescott was diagnosed with a calf strain, and luckily for him, the Cowboys were heading into their bye week. This means that Prescott can rest this weekend, which will help him prepare for a potential comeback next weekend against the Vikings.

Fans have been waiting for an update on the Prescott situation, and recently, they got just that courtesy of Ian Rapoport and Tom Pelissero of the NFL Network. According to their reporting, Dak won’t practice early this week, but the team is confident that he will be back under center in time for Week 8.
