Dak Prescott went through his pregame workout before Sunday Night Football, and the Cowboys made a game-time decision. The quarterback will not play against the Vikings, Chris Mortensen of ESPN reports.

Prescott strained his right calf on the final play of the Week 6 overtime victory over the Patriots. The Cowboys, who had a bye last week, listed Prescott as limited in practice all week and questionable for the game.

Cooper Rush, who took all the first-team reps this week, will make his first career start. Will Grier will back up Rush.

Rush has appeared in only six regular-season games, while taking 58 snaps and throwing three passes.

Prescott had never missed a start in his career until last season when he severely injured his right ankle in Week 5 against the Giants.

  1. Must be more than a simple “stained calf” same leg that he broke he had two weeks off……he is DONE!

  2. If Cooper Rush can’t guide THIS offense to at least 24 points after taking all the first team reps this week then he probably doesn’t deserve to be on the team.

  3. As a Vikings fan, I wish Dak would be playing. Now the inevitability of losing in prime time to an undrafted nobody who hasn’t taken a snap in 4 years is quite obvious.

  4. The Vikings always get lucky with opponents playing backup quarterbacks. It’s almost like a conspiracy, the NFL wants the Vikings to win.
