Dak Prescott said he pushed it during practice Thursday, testing his strained right calf to see what he could or couldn’t do. But the Cowboys still listed the star quarterback as limited.

“I didn’t go half or 75 percent,” Prescott said, via Jori Epstein of USA Today. “I went all, and I just told myself that if something was going to happen I’m going to do it today, but I needed to feel the full go. I did that.”

Prescott said he would know by Saturday whether he can play against the Vikings.

“I want to play just because I want to be out there and help my team,” Prescott said. “Obviously missing the time that I did last year was no fun. But knowing we’re a contender [and] can grow, I can understand the big picture.

“This is a journey. This is more than one game.”

Prescott was injured on his 35-yard, game-winning touchdown throw to CeeDee Lamb in overtime against the Patriots on Oct. 17. The Cowboys had a bye last week.

Backup quarterback Cooper Rush has never started an NFL game, playing in only six, while taking 58 snaps and throwing three passes.

The Cowboys’ practice report did not change: Defensive end Dorance Armstrong (ankle), cornerback Trevon Diggs (ankle) and left tackle Tyron Smith (ankle) remained limited, and defensive end Randy Gregory (knee), receiver Cedrick Wilson (shoulder) and safety Donovan Wilson (groin) were full participants.

  1. Dakota has it wrong. If the team doctor, Jerruh, says he is ready to play, he will be ready to play. Saturday has nothing to do with the outcome. Dr. Jerruh will render a proper and informed judgment and Dakota will do what he’s paid to do.

  2. While I like Dak he’s VERY fragile. The players now and the HUGE amounts of money they are being paid need to do one thing…..produce. Yeah yeah yeah I know some people are going to whine about him being hurt but we’ve all been hurt and had to go to work anyway.. it’s the nature of what he does. Besides the Cowboys have ZERO for QB backup….less then ZERO. They really needed to sign someone to back Dak up.
