Cowboys’ Dak Prescott Sends Message About Playing in Week 9.


Cowboys’ Dak Prescott Sends Message About Playing in Week 9.

Dak Prescott is “feeling well” after a right calf strain, and it’s “fair to assume” the Dallas Cowboys’ franchise quarterback will start against the Denver Broncos on Sunday.

Dak himself is the source.

“I’m feeling fantastic,” Prescott stated on the team’s official website on Thursday. “Obviously, I had two weeks to do a lot of rehab and recovery, get everything I needed, the various modalities, and I’m feeling terrific.” I had two excellent practice days and am looking forward to Sunday.”

Prescott took part in full practice on Thursday for the first time since injuring his calf on the final play of Dallas’ win against the New England Patriots on Oct. 17. Prescott was held out of last week’s game against the Minnesota Vikings due to an abundance of caution, but his return to the starting lineup is now part of the “plan.”

Prior to practice, Cowboys head coach Mike McCarthy announced, “Dak will practice today [during]team periods.” “On Sunday, he’ll practice and play,” says the coach.

Dak isn’t going to take no for an answer.

Prescott is itching to come back under center after missing the majority of last season and getting out to a(nother) hot start this year. Despite the fact that watching from the sidelines was agonizing for the $160 million signal-caller, he understood the Cowboys’ choice to play the long game with his health.

“I understood the viewpoint and where we were coming from, and I understand that this is a long trip ahead of us, and we’re a team that can play for a long time.” According to the official team website, Prescott remarked Thursday, “We can play into that last game (of the season).” “As a result, when the decision was taken, I had to keep it in mind.”

Prescott, on the other hand, delivered a clear message to the club’s decision-makers in the next breath: the position is his, and he’s eager to retake it. As a result, backup Cooper Rush is unlikely to be asked for QB1 duties again.

Prescott joked, “They got their two weeks with the bye,” adding that his calf feels “very close” to 100 percent.
