The Dallas Cowboys took the field against the Minnesota Vikings last weekend without their starting quarterback.
Dak Prescott tried it in warmups but couldn’t keep up with the team. Prescott, who was nursing a calf injury, watched the action from the sidelines in sweatpants.
Prescott spoke with media earlier Thursday afternoon to discuss last weekend’s game. Prescott was asked by a reporter if he had learned anything from being on the sidelines rather than in the game.
“That’s not necessarily what I like to do. Prescott stated that he likes to play.
Did Dak Prescott learn anything from being on the sideline Sunday night in Minnesota?

Dak and Cowboys fans will be happy to know that the Cowboys’ star quarterback will not be on the sidelines this week. Mike McCarthy said that Dak will play against the Denver Broncos this weekend.
McCarthy stated to reporters that McCarthy’s plan was for McCarthy to practice and play Sunday.
Cooper Rush was a great backup for Dak in the match against Minnesota. Although everyone expected it to be a loss for Cowboys, Rush led the team to a remarkable 20-16 victory.
The team will now have Dak back on field with a great chance to improve their record by 7-1
Kickoff between the Cowboys & the Broncos will take place at 1 p.m. Eastern Time. FOX will broadcast the game.
