The Dallas Cowboys may have their starting quarterback back Sunday, according to reports.
Mike McCarthy, Cowboys’ head coach, announced Thursday that Dak Prescott will practice on Thursday and then play on Sunday.
This past weekend Dallas defeated the Minnesota Vikings without Prescott. Cooper Rush was their backup quarterback. Prescott will be back at the Cowboys’ center this weekend.
The Cowboys will host the Broncos at AT&T Stadium, Arlington, Texas.
McCarthy stated to reporters that McCarthy’s plan was for McCarthy to practice and play Sunday.
There doesn't seem to be the same mystery regarding Dak Prescott's status this week as he comes back from the calf strain. He will take team drills today. "The plan is for him to practice and play (Sunday)," Mike McCarthy said.
