Cowboys Hopeful That QB Dak Prescott Will be Ready For Sunday’s Regular Season Finale

As one of only a few teams actually practicing on Christmas, the Cowboys were noticeably missing Dak Prescott, Grant Gordon of NFL.com reports.

After a right shoulder injury forced him to miss the first practices of his NFL career last week, Prescott was estimated not to participate in Wednesday’s practice on the team’s official injury report and coach Jason Garrett offered that the team would have the same approach this week as last week.

“Last week, we really took it day by day, and this week we’ll do the same thing,” Garrett said. “Obviously, he was able to play in the ballgame. Hopefully, we can get him on the same path where he’s able to go on Sunday.”

Though he wasn’t set to do much, Prescott was still in attendance.

“We don’t anticipate him being able to practice very much today,” Garrett said. “He’ll be out there — he was out there for the walk-through and was able to go through the walk-through today. But we don’t anticipate him practicing fully today. He’ll be limited at best.”

With a shot at winning the NFC East in the balance in Week 16, Prescott and the Cowboys lost to the Eagles, 17-9. It was the last chance Dallas had at controlling its own playoff destiny.

In the loss, Prescott struggled, turning in a 74.5 quarterback rating as he went 25-for-44 for 265 yards with no touchdowns or interceptions.

Just how much the shoulder had to play in Prescott’s inefficiency was a topic Garrett wasn’t willing to tackle head-on.

“Guys, to be honest with you, no disrespect, but I don’t want to get into all that right now,” Garrett said. “We talked about the Philly game on Monday and now we’re on to getting ourselves ready for the Washington game. I understand that Dak’s a big story, and I understand why you’re asking the question, but we’ll take them day by day and hopefully he’ll be ready to practice at some point this week and ready to play on Sunday.”

Cowboys QB Dak Prescott Hurts Both Hands in Thursday Loss to Bears

For the majority of Thursday night, the Dallas Cowboys struggled to move the ball. It was a big reason why “America’s Team” fell to the Bears in primetime, 31-24. To make matters worse, quarterback Dak Prescott reportedly played through injuries to both hands during the loss, CBS Sports reports.

On Friday, head coach Jason Garrett informed reporters that Prescott injured the index finger on his right hand, and also sprained his left hand, according to Clarence Hill Jr. of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram. Garrett says that Prescott was able to get through the game without much of a problem, and he should be good to go against the Los Angeles Rams next Sunday.

Prescott completed 27 of 49 passes for 334 yards and a touchdown, but most of those yards came in garbage time. The Cowboys scored 17 points in the final quarter, which made the game seem much closer than it actually was.

Dallas went three-and-out five times on Thursday night, as it was a performance not unlike what occurred a week ago against the Buffalo Bills on Thanksgiving. The Cowboys started off strong, recording a 75-yard drive that resulted in a touchdown on their opening possession for the second straight week.

Those would be the only points the Cowboys would score until the final quarter. While the offense struggled, the defense had problems of their own. They allowed Mitchell Trubisky to go off for 307 total yards and four touchdowns as the Bears scored 31 points, which tied their season high.
