The Dallas Cowboys will be wearing a new helmet when they take to the field this weekend.
The Cowboys will wear a red stripe to honor the Salute to Service program. According to a Cowboys insider, it’s the first time that the team has done so in 45 years.
Cowboys reporter Todd Archer reported that the Cowboys will sport a red stripe on the helmets of their Cowboys on Sunday in the Salute to Service program. This is also part of the Medal of Honor Museum. Eight Medal of Honor recipients will attend the ceremony at halftime.

The new gear grabbed headlines earlier in the afternoon, but there’s one question Cowboys fans want to know. Will Dak Prescott, the Cowboys’ star quarterback, be able play?
Cooper Rush, the backup quarterback, was the starter last weekend against the Minnesota Vikings. Rush assumed the role of backup quarterback after Prescott was unable to play due to a calf injury and led the Cowboys in a surprise win.
Although the win was pleasing, it would have been even better to see Prescott return on the field next week. If Prescott isn’t available, Dallas will face off against Denver Broncos in a potentially intense defensive matchup.
