Without Dak Preston, the Dallas Cowboys managed to win against the Minnesota Vikings. They will not have the same problem this weekend against Denver Broncos.
The Cowboys announced Friday that Dak was participating in practice again. He’s on track to play against Denver this Sunday.
Cooper Rush was the Vikings’ starting quarterback when Dak was not there. He dominated the Vikings’ defense in his first NFL game, leading them to a 4th quarter victory.
Dak Prescott is not the only one who is in good health going into Week 9. Trevon Diggs was a full participant in practice, even though he has been suffering from an ankle injury. Diggs will also be starting this Sunday.
Dak Prescott (calf) and Trevon Diggs (ankle) were both full participants again today. No questions with either. Both will be starting Sunday https://t.co/DcouwRUFvw

Dak Prescott was a frontrunner to be named NFL MVP for the first six weeks. He leads the NFL in completions with a current 73 percent. He has also thrown for 1,813 yards and 16 touchdowns, with only four interceptions.
The Cowboys are currently 6-1 and have a three-win cushion over the NFC East. They may be able to win the division by Thanksgiving if they win just a few more.
Dak Prescott is the Cowboys’ only hope of making it to the playoffs. They may be the best NFL team if he plays at this level.
FOX will broadcast the Cowboys-Broncos match at 1 p.m. ET on Sunday.
