CelebnSports247.com reports that Prescott isn’t likely to see any action in Dallas’ final two preseason games while recovering from a shoulder strain, head coach Mike McCarthy said Wednesday.
ESPN’s Todd Archer reported that coach McCarthy said:
There’s a good chance he probably won’t play. Yes, that’s fair. We’ll just continue the throwing regimen and keep building up the volume.
While McCarthy said Wednesday that Prescott now likely won’t get any preseason action, he is reportedly “healing well” after straining his shoulder in July.
Prescott missed the Hall of Fame Game and the Cowboys’ second preseason game because of it. The Cowboys have two exhibition games left, starting Saturday against the Houston Texans.
While Prescott has been throwing more in practices, McCarthy said Monday that if Prescott doesn’t see the field Saturday, then he won’t play in the preseason finale.
Still, neither McCarthy nor Prescott seem bothered, even considering that Prescott hasn’t played in a game since he suffered a gruesome ankle injury early last season.
Prescott said last week about his shoulder injury:
This is something we want to nip in the bud and not let continue to linger. And I think the best way we do that is stay on the pace that I am and progress through it the right way, and once Sept. 9 comes I’ll play that game and move forward without ever thinking about this again.
The Cowboys start the season Sept. 9 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, where they’ve opened as +7 underdogs on BetMGM.
