Good news......but then we shouldn't be surprised, he said he'd be fine...... https://www.nfl.com/news/cowboys-qb...primetime-clash-against-?campaign=Twitter_atn Cowboys QB Dak Prescott expected to be ready for Week 8 primetime clash against Vikings Published: Oct 24, 2021 at 06:59 AM One week after Dak Prescott suffered a calf injury on the final play of a thrilling overtime win against the New England Patriots, the Dallas Cowboys remain optimistic their star quarterback will be ready to make his next start next Sunday night at Minnesota -- though they are proceeding carefully. Sources say Prescott is not expected to participate in a light practice Monday when the team returns from its bye. The soonest he would practice is Wednesday, and the team will monitor him closely to make sure he's moving like himself and not putting himself at risk of a relatively minor issue turning into something more. It's the same long-term thinking the Cowboys used back in training camp, when Prescott missed substantial time because of a muscle strain in his throwing shoulder. The plan all along was to ramp him up gradually, and Prescott was ready for the opener.
