The Dallas Cowboys are preparing for their most important game of the 2019 NFL season as they get set to hit the road for a crucial NFC East showdown with the Philadelphia Eagles. Regardless, it seems they are still taking a cautious approach with quarterback Dan Prescott.
Prescott has not practiced all week while dealing with a sprained right shoulder. According to Jon Machota of The Athletic, head coach Jason Garrett does not expect him to get much activity in.
Dak Prescott isn’t expected to do much for the third consecutive day in practice.
Jason Garrett: “He’ll be pretty limited. If he throws, it won’t be much. … We’ll just take it day by day and see what he’s able to do today.
Although Prescott’s inability to take part in practice is hardly an encouraging sign, it is certainly understandable since they hope he can take advantage of each day of rest before game time.
Prescott had initially suffered the injury early on in the dominant victory over the Los Angeles Rams in Week 15. This prompted an MRI which revealed that he is nursing an AC joint sprain, however, there are some rumors swirling that it could be more severe than Dallas is letting on.
The timing of the injury is hardly ideal with their playoff destiny riding on a win against the Eagles for the division. Even if Prescott is able to make it through this week, it remains to be seen how effective he will be going into the postseason.
