Report: Dak Prescott will be a game-time decision

America’s Team likes keeping America in suspense.

With all signs (and betting lines) pointing toward Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott not playing on Sunday night at Minnesota due to a calf injury suffered 13 days ago, the Cowboys continue to push a different narrative.

Case in point: Ed Werder of ESPN reports, citing two unnamed sources, that Prescott’s availability will become a game-time decision.

This means Prescott will travel to Minnesota. The next question is whether he’s among the inactive Cowboys on Sunday night. If not, the question becomes whether his uniform will be as meaningful as a Halloween costume, or whether he’ll actually venture onto the turf at U.S. Bank Stadium.

  1. Agreed there is no reason for the Vikings to be favored unless Dak isnt playing. If I were a betting man, which I am, I would he isnt playing

  2. Can you please make a decision now one way or another?

    Signed,

    Concerned fantasy football manager

  3. when is the NFL finally going to make the cutoff 12 noon
    Saturday for who will play and who will sit (injury report) this is crazy with the NFL in bed with gambling. Also the schedule stinks u got Tampa , Buffalo etc. having easy crazy schedules and lousy teams getting killed double figures. When and what happened to playoff teams playing a tougher schedule so the fan and viewing public can see more even and competitive games. This league needs to make changes to both to improve a declining product.

  4. Oh stop. He’s out and everybody knows.

    Who cares. Report something worth reading.

  5. I don’t think Dak is hurt. He’s just an attention getter. I doubt his ankle was even broken. If that happened to my ankle it wouldn’t have broken.

  6. It should be about football, not betting. Teams should be able to go right up to kickoff before they have to decide who plays or who doesn’t.

    Lol to show you how dumb your “12 noon cutoff” is, Dak wont even be anywhere near the field at noon which is 8 hours BEFORE his game, how is any player to suppose to test an injury in pregame warmups if it’s not close to pregame?
    2nd it’s really easy to see how the schedule is created so whining about 2 teams shows your lack of knowledge and understanding of the game.

  8. If Dak is out, the Vikings SHOULD win the game. With that being said, I would fully expect Zimmer to handicap the offense, allow the cowboys to hang around, and have Rush lead a drive for a game winning field goal to end the game. But that’s just the Vikings fan speaking in me.

  9. He’s not playing. The Vikings dodged a bullet. Wishing, hoping, and praying can get it done!

  10. Honestly I am glad the villas E playing the Connor’s this week and not the green and gold.

  11. I’m guessing he’s out for Sunday nights game. If you have ever pulled a calf muscle it takes more than 2 weeks. My experience mine felt great after 2 weeks. Decided to play, did my warm-ups all was good. I was a kicker. On my first attempt my calf popped so loud I thought a gun went off. I was done for the rest of the season. Needs more than 2 weeks. Sunday night game it’s a must win for Dallas he’ll sit this one out.

    Get a life man – your constant whining about the Vikings grew old years ago.
