Is Dak Prescott going to play against the Minnesota Vikings on Sunday Night Football this evening?
The Dallas Cowboys quarterback has been making progress on his strained calf. Prescott suffered the injury during the overtime win against the New England Patriots two weeks ago. However, Prescott wasn’t able to do much at practice this week, with backup Cooper Rush getting most of the snaps.
Prescott wants to play tonight, though. And the decision on the starting quarterback will reportedly come down to one thing: the pregame warmup.
According to NFL Network insider Tom Pelissero, it’s all about the “highly anticipated pregame warmup” for Prescott tonight.

From the report:
Backup QB Cooper Rush took all the team reps in practice this week and would get his first NFL start if Prescott can’t go.
But as of Saturday night, the Cowboys hadn’t ruled out Prescott, who got reps in walkthroughs and a little 7-on-7 work during the week. He’ll go full speed through a throwing session with receivers and other activities before Sunday’s prime-time game in hopes of getting the green light.
The Cowboys and the Vikings are scheduled to kick off at 8:20 p.m. E.T. The game will air on NBC.
