Dak Prescott to be listed as limited on first Week 16 injury report

Dak Prescott is going to play on Sunday, but this is worth noting heading into Week 16.

The Dallas Cowboys face a crucial must-win game against the Philadelphia Eagles in Week 16, and quarterback Dak Prescott is banged up for the game. Prescott was added to the team’s injury report to open Week 16, and will be listed as limited due to a shoulder injury, according to beat writer Clarence Hill.

There is little doubt Prescott is going to play on Sunday, but Hill noted this is the first time Prescott has been limited in practice. Head coach Jason Garrett said an MRI indicated things were OK, but it’s banged up and he won’t “throw[] much in practice” on Wednesday.

Fantasy football analysis: Eagles QB Dak Prescott

Prescott is coming off a solid performance against the Rams in which he threw for 232 yards and two touchdowns. It was a relatively quiet performance from a fantasy perspective, but solid enough. He’s a must start against an inconsistent Eagles defense as fantasy players prepare for their Week 16 championship matchups.
