The Dallas Morning News' Michael Gehlken tweets, "It would surprise many close to situation if Cowboys QB Dak Prescott (calf) starts Sunday vs. Vikings." On top of his calf issue, Prescott left the team on Friday following the death of his grandmother. He's back with the team now and traveled to Minnesota. But Gehlken notes that backup QB Cooper Rush saw the "most meaningful reps" of the practice week. At this point, we're leaning toward Prescott missing Sunday night's game. But we'll see if we get a more concrete update on Sunday morning.

Cowboys QB Dak Prescott reportedly said he expected a decision following Saturday's practice on whether he'll start Sunday night against the Vikings. ESPN's Ed Werder, however, says 2 sources have called it a game-time decision. He quoted one as saying, "We are literally going to take it into tomorrow (night)." If it's truly a game-time decision for Sunday night, that would take the call beyond when most other QBs are starting their games. Waiting on Prescott will bring some risk this week.

Cowboys QB Dak Prescott (calf) is listed as questionable for Sunday night’s game against the Vikings. He was limited in practice all week. Prescott felt and looked good in practice by all accounts, but he’s admitted that the team has the final say on whether he plays Sunday night. That decision is expected to be made on Saturday. QB Cooper Rush will make his 1st career start if Prescott is out. Stay tuned.

Cowboys HC Mike McCarthy said QB Dak Prescott (calf) was sore on Friday after ramping up his work in Thursday's practice. McCarthy was non-committal on Prescott's status for Sunday night's game vs. the Vikings. Owner Jerry Jones remains optimistic. "I’d like to think Dak can go and will think that," Jones said. "We’ll see how things work at practice, but I’d say things are looking good right now about Dak.” Prescott seems 50/50 to play at this point. QB Cooper Rush will make his 1st career start on Sunday night if Prescott is out.

Cowboys QB Dak Prescott (calf) was again listed as a limited participant in Thursday's practice. “Today, I pushed it. I didn’t go half or 75%," he said afterward, before admitting that his status for Sunday night's game vs. the Vikings remains uncertain. “It’s not fully my decision because there is a bigger picture. It’s more than just one game ... I don’t want this to linger past this week.” Prescott expects the decision to be made on Saturday. Stay tuned.

Cowboys QB Dak Prescott (calf) was limited in Wednesday's practice. "He's going to practice and he's going to go through the individual part of it and he's in the game plans. He's preparing to play," HC Mike McCarthy said beforehand. "He's got to cross the threshold to make sure he's full-go." Prescott remains likely -- but not a lock -- to play against the Vikings on Sunday night. Check back tomorrow for another update.

Cowboys QB Dak Prescott (calf) remains on track to play vs. the Vikings next Sunday night, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Prescott will be held out of Monday's light workout but is expected to practice on Wednesday. "The team will monitor him closely to make sure he's moving like himself and not putting himself at risk of a relatively minor issue turning into something more," Rapoport adds. We'll keep a close eye on Prescott this coming week.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport hears that Cowboys QB Dak Prescott is "looking good" after Monday's MRI on his calf. "They got good news," Rapoport adds. Prescott gets a Week 7 bye, and it sounds like he'll be ready to go come Week 8.

Cowboys QB Dak Prescott downplayed his calf injury after Sunday's overtime win in New England. "I’ll be fine," Prescott said. "I’ve got a lot of confidence in myself and the medical team. I feel good ... It doesn’t hurt as bad, obviously, when you score and win the game. I just came down funny and didn’t like what I felt.” Prescott was in a walking boot after the game, though, and walking with a "significant limp," according to The Athletic's Jon Machota. He's schedule for an MRI on Monday, so we should learn more soon. Prescott gets a perfectly timed Week 7 bye.

Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk reports that Cowboys QB Dak Prescott was in a walking boot after Sunday's win over the Patriots because of a calf strain he suffered in the game. Prescott reportedly assured reports that he'll be "fine." We'll obviously watch his progress. Dallas gets a well-timed Week 7 bye to help him get past it.

Cowboys QB Dak Prescott (shoulder) was listed as a full participant on the 1st official practice report of the season on Monday. His surgically repaired ankle isn't even on the injury report. It's confirmation that Prescott will be under center for Thursday night's opener vs. the Bucs.

The Cowboys will be without RG Zack Martin for Thursday night's season opener at Tampa Bay. HC Mike McCarthy announced Sunday that Martin has tested positive for COVID. We'll see whether that also jeopardizes his availability for Week 2. Losing Martin figures to impact RB Ezekiel Elliott the most, from a fantasy standpoint. It's a particularly tough blow against a Bucs defense that has consistently ranked at or near the top of the league in run defense in recent seasons. Don't be surprised if we get a slow statistical start for Elliott. At the same time, we're not going to recommend immediately benching a RB you likely drafted in Round 1 -- unless you're loaded at the position. Check our full Week 1 rankings to see exactly where Elliott lands.

Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said Sunday that QB Dak Prescott (shoulder) is "good to go" for the start of the season after a nice week of practice. “He really turned it loose and was none the worse for it," Jones said. Prescott got limited practice reps this offseason as he rehabbed ankle and then shoulder injuries. But he's returning to the same offense with the same group of weapons. There's more risk with Prescott than the rest of the top-end fantasy QBs -- but his ceiling easily climbs into the top 3.

Cowboys QB Dak Prescott is back to full practice participation. “I thought he looked great,'' OC Kellen Moore said Thursday, referring to Prescott's Wednesday workout. "We’re not looking at anything from a limitation standpoint ... We're just playing ball at this point. We're fired up." Obviously, there's always chance of a re-injury, but Dallas has clearly been playing it cautiously with their franchise passer. It sounds like we should feel confident in drafting Prescott in fantasy football leagues.

Cowboys QB Dak Prescott (shoulder) is expected to throw in 7-on-7 drills in Wednesday's practice, David Helman of the team's official website reports. It'll be Prescott's 1st competitive reps since the 1st week of training camp. He continues to trend toward being ready to rock come Week 1.

Cowboys QB Dak Prescott (shoulder) told NFL Network's Tom Pelissero that he has "no doubt" he'll be 100% for Week 1. Pelissero adds that Prescott has had no setbacks in his rehab and could have played vs. Houston on Saturday night if it was a regular-season game. Dallas reportedly plans to ramp up Prescott's reps in practice this coming week and have him be a full-go during the week leading up to the Thursday night opener vs. the Bucs
