Cowboys Issue Unexpected Dak Prescott Health Update
The Cowboys issued an unexpected Dak Prescott health update on Wednesday.
Coming out of last week’s disappointing loss to the Philadelphia Eagles, Dallas no longer controls its own destiny.

Another update on Prescott’s status will likely come a little later this week. Obviously Dallas will need him as close as possible to 100 percent if the team hopes to have any shot at making the playoffs.
