Dak Prescott dealing with shoulder injury


FRISCO, Texas — For the first time this season—and the first time in Dak Prescott’s career, as far as Jason Garrett could remember—an injury limited the Cowboys starting quarterback from participating in practice Wednesday.

Prescott injured his right shoulder on a 7-yard scramble in the first quarter of a 44-21 win over the Rams on Sunday. He finished the game but was listed as limited during practice Wednesday. The Cowboys travel to Philadelphia this weekend with a chance to clinch a second consecutive NFC East title.

“Dak banged up his shoulder early on in the game, so he’ll be somewhat limited in practice,” Garrett said. “They did an MRI and everything seems to be OK. But he just banged it up and it’s hard for him to function right now. So we don’t anticipate him throwing much in practice.”

During the portion of practice open to the media, Prescott stretched with the team—using his left arm to stretch each quad—and tossed passes to running back Ezekiel Elliott with his left hand. Prescott then watched as backup quarterbacks Cooper Rush and Clayton Thorson threw to receivers during their pat-and-go drill. Prescott, who has never missed a practice or game in four years since Dallas drafted him, did not throw. After the session, the quarterbacks eschewed their usual drills to huddle with quarterbacks coach Jon Kitna.
