The Dallas Cowboys have released their first injury report of Week 8. It was no surprise that Dak Prescott, the star quarterback, was included on the list.
The Cowboys were fresh from a win against the Minnesota Vikings Sunday night and had a light practice Wednesday. Prescott’s participation in the practice would have been restricted if it was a full one.
Today’s practice was short and both wide receivers CeeDee lamb (ankle), and Amari Cooper (hamstring), were both limited.

Prescott sustained a calf strain during Week 6’s overtime victory over the New England Patriots. The 28-year old quarterback was unable, despite having a week off to recover from his injury in Week 7.
Prescott, who sustained a severe leg injury in the 2020 season, is back in 2021. He has made it into the MVP conversation. Dak led the Cowboys’ 5-1 record with 1,813 yards, 16 touchdowns, and four interceptions, a league-leading 73.1 percent completion rate.
Prescott appeared to be doing well in a warmup before Sunday’s game. Prescott will likely be in action Week 9, if that is any indication.
On Sunday, the Cowboys will take on the Denver Broncos.
