CowboysSI.com’s Mike Fisher tweeted moments ago that Cowboys players were reportedly told in team meetings last night to be ready to play without Prescott. The veteran QB was limited in practice all week after straining his right calf late in the team’s Week 6 win over the New England Patriots.
Dallas had a bye last weekend, but even with the extra rest, it is looking less and less likely that Prescott can give it a go tonight.

If Dak does sit, Cooper Rush will make the start for the 5-1 Cowboys. Considering Dallas holds a four-game lead in the loss column in the NFC East, there’s no reason to push Prescott if he’s less than ready to play.
Inactives for Cowboys-Vikings will be announced in a little over five hours. The two teams will kick off at 8:20 p.m. ET tonight.
NBC will broadcast the action.
