Dak Prescott “for sure” has a chance to play next week

After pulling out a win over the Vikings on SNF without Dak Prescott, Chris Simms breaks down what makes the Cowboys' offense so tough to defend and why it could very well carry them all the way to Super Bowl LVI.

As Cooper Rush walked toward the locker room, Dak Prescott came running up to him to deliver a hug. The Cowboys stole one Sunday night.

They gave Prescott’s right calf another week to heal, and with him standing on the sideline, backup Cooper Rush delivered a victory in his first career start.

“I had a plan all week, trying to progress and get myself out there,” Prescott said after the game. “We made a call at the end of having a chance to come out with win, without me playing, and be able to get healthy and not have something re-injure and linger past this week.”

Prescott was injured on the final play of the Week 6 overtime victory over the Patriots. The Cowboys, who had a bye last week, listed Prescott as limited in practice all week and questionable for the game. They called him a game-time decision, though, all signs pointed to Rush playing.

Prescott said he has a chance to return next week against the Broncos.

“For sure. I was getting prepared to play this game,” Prescott said. “I’m a guy that takes it day-by-day, moment-at-moment, and right now, I’m going to celebrate this win with the guys and worry about rehabbing and getting everything back in order tomorrow.”
