DALLAS – Dak Prescott is ready to work without limitations, said Kellen Moore, offensive coordinator for the Dallas Cowboys.
Moore indicated that his starting quarterback passed the last tests due to the strain on his right shoulder, which included training last Wednesday, and that it will no longer even be necessary to count the passes he throws from Friday, when the team resumes its training.
Prescott practiced in real-life game situations Wednesday, throwing 12 passes on 18 plays in his first 11-11 drills appearance since July 28, when he began to have discomfort in his right shoulder (from throwing).
“(Dak) looked really good. We are motivated. We are not seeing any limitations. We are only going to play at this point. We are ready for rock and roll. We are preparing to be ready for the regular season and (play against) Tampa Bay, ”stressed Moore.
The offensive coordinator reiterated that Prescott, who has not played in the preseason, will not participate in the last preparation game and it will be Cooper Rush who starts as Sunday’s game against the Jacksonville Jaguars, followed by Garrett Gilbert and Ben DiNucci, whose place On the roster, he is increasingly in danger for this last quarterback, who was drafted in the seventh round of the 2020 draft, due to the poor performance he has had in the current preseason, in which he suffered three interceptions in two quarters against the Houston Texans.
Dan Quinn improves after positive for COVID-19

Quinn said that thanks to being fully vaccinated, his symptoms have been mild.
