Mike McCarthy said the MRI just confirmed that Dak Prescott has a right calf strain. He will rest this week. The medical staff is “optimistic” he will be able to play against Minnesota after the bye week.
The bye week comes at the right time for the Cowboys. We may not hear a whole lot more about Prescott's status until later next week, but so far the news seems promising. Still, owners may want to start thinking about a backup plan for Week 8 - just in case.
