With a critical NFC East showdown coming Sunday between the Cowboys and the Eagles, there is troubling news coming out of Dallas regarding Quarterback Dak Prescott. He is currently dealing with a shoulder injury that is limiting him in practice and necessitated an MRI.

Prescott has been a model of toughness since entering the NFL. He has started every game for Dallas since 2016, only exiting early during blowouts or meaningless Week 17 finales.

We will keep checking the status of Dak Prescott’s injury as the week continues.
