Dak Prescott won’t play against the undefeated Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday night, but he will do some additional work before the game.
On Friday, Cowboys coach Mike McCarthy shared the team’s plans for Prescott in a press conference.
“He did more than scheduled (yesterday), which is clearly a good sign,” McCarthy said, per team insider Jon Machota. Despite some “soreness” on Friday, Prescott will workout before the game on Sunday night.

Prescott is out of action since he broke his thumb while throwing during Week 1’s loss to the Buccaneers. Prescott, a Dallas franchise QB, underwent surgery to correct the problem and has been steadily improving every day since.
In Prescott’s absence, backup quarterback Cooper Rush led the Cowboys four consecutive wins. In their eagerly awaited Week 6 matchup, Rush and the 4-1 Dallas team will try to maintain that streak.
At 8:20 p.m., the Cowboys and Eagles will take off at Lincoln Financial Field. ET on Sunday.
