Cowboys owner Jerry Jones feels good about QB Dak Prescott’s status ahead of Dallas’ matchup with Minnesota in Week 8.
However, the Cowboys are taking it slow with their star quarterback. As first reported by Ian Rapoport and Tom Pelissero of NFL Network, Prescott is not expected to participate in a light practice on Monday.
Prescott suffered a calf strain in the Week 6 win over the Patriots. Just like the Vikings, the Cowboys were in a bye in Week 7. So with the news that Prescott isn’t practicing tomorrow, signs still point to the Cowboys QB being ready to go for Week 8.
The Vikings sit at 3-3, while the Cowboys are 5-1. Minnesota has suffered narrow defeats to Cincinnati, Arizona and Cleveland. Dallas fell to the reigning Super Bowl champions, Tampa Bay, in Week 1.
The Vikings could learn a thing or two from the Cowboys-Buccaneers game. Tom Brady was not perfect on the day, throwing two picks. However, Brady led Tampa Bay to a win by being aggressive in the passing game. He finished with four touchdown passes and 379 passing yards.
Overall, if the Vikings want to keep up with the Cowboys, Minnesota QB Kirk Cousins needs to gouge the Dallas defense — especially if Prescott is available for the Cowboys on the other side of the ball.
