Prescott took over as starting quarterback in 2016 when Tony Romo went down with a back injury. He did not give his job back, leading the Cowboys to a sensational regular season.
The former Mississippi State star is playing the 2020 season under the franchise tag. Dallas is currently being led by backup quarterback Andy Dalton.
Our thoughts remain with Prescott on Sunday evening.
The Cowboys currently lead the Giants, 31-23, early in the fourth quarter. The game is being televised on CBS.
