Clarence Hill Jr., a Dallas beat writer, reported that Dak Prescott will not be on the Cowboys’ field against the Seahawks in their preseason finale.
Despite being fully healthy, the Cowboys’ starting quarterback has yet to see any game action in this preseason.
Prescott did not participate in the preseason last season as he was still recovering from the devastating leg injury that he sustained during the 2020 season. Prescott’s absence from the preseason this year is likely due to his veteran status and his desire to stay healthy for the 2022 campaign.
Prescott has not seen any preseason action, but he impressed during training camp. Stephen Jones, Cowboys vice-president, says that this is the best camp he’s ever witnessed from the former fourth-round draft selection.
Cowboys QB Dak Prescott will not play in preseason for a second straight year. He did pretty good in the season opener against Tampa Bay in 2021. They expect the same against Tampa in 2022 on Sept. 11

Prescott, who had not been selected for preseason action in 2021 was able to take the field in Week 1 and deliver a 403 yard, three-touchdown performance in the match against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
Dak will open their 2022 season by hosting another matchup against the Bucs in Week 1.
Cooper Rush and Ben DiNucci, who were both backups, have taken most of the preseason in-game snaps this season. Will Grier, an injured backup, returned to practice this evening in a limited capacity.
