The Cowboys got a win without quarterback Dak Prescott in Minnesota on Sunday night, but it looks like they have a good chance of getting him back for their Week Nine home game against the Broncos.

Prescott said after the victory that he “for sure” has a chance to return from his calf injury for that game and Cowboys head coach Mike McCarthy outlined a plan for Prescott to step up his workload during his Monday press conference.

McCarthy said that Prescott will practice on Wednesday and that he expects the quarterback to be “full go” for Thursday’s session as long as everything goes well. Prescott was a limited participant in practice all of last week. He was listed as questionable and the team didn’t make an official call on his status until shortly before Sunday’s kickoff.

Cooper Rush started and went 24-of-40 for 325 yards, two touchdowns, and an interception in the 20-16 victory.

  1. This Cowboys team is different this year. Under Jason Garrett, they definitely would have lost the last two versus NE and Minn.

  2. To be honest, it really doesn’t matter what Mike McCarthy thinks.

    We all know the only opinion that truly counts is that of Dr. Jurrah!

    Jerry thought Dak would play last week but he didn’t. People are wrong thinking Jerry just dictates every single thing that happens with this team. I know it’s funny to say when you don’t follow the team, but it is not true. If it was, they would have drafted Johnny Manziel years ago.

  4. The Rams and Packers are afraid.

    You haven’t experienced McCarthy in the post-season.

    I can’t explain it to you. You’ll have to experience it for yourself to truly understand.

  5. Did some research on Dak’s ankle injuries. If you watch his stance he has what’s called out-toeing, or duck feet. Puts unnatural stress on the lower leg, which he’s had issues with. They’d be better off limping through as long as they can to let him get to near 90%+ cuz it’ll keep coming back, and will likely be a career long issue if you look at the medical reality. Watch how janky his ankles look when he’s rambling around the pocket. Hope I’m wrong.

    Maybe so.
    But this team definitely has a better attitude with him as HC.
