Yikes! That was scary.
Prescott was evaluated in the blue pop-up tent and was cleared. He returned to the field for the Cowboys’ next possession. Cooper Rush is Prescott’s backup, but Mike White isn’t active. Receiver Cole Beasley would probably be the emergency third quarterback if Dallas was forced into needing him.
Former Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo, who was doing the game broadcast for CBS, remarked immediately when Prescott was hit: “That’s a concussion.”
It’s been a rough first half for Prescott. He appeared to be limping after tweaking an ankle on Dallas’ first possession. And trainers were also examining his left hand.
