Dallas Cowboys head coach Mike McCarthy told reporters on Wednesday Dak Prescott will likely miss this weekend’s preseason matchup against the Houston Texans.

The star quarterback is recovering from a lat strain in his right arm.

Prescott has worked himself back to practice, albeit on a limited basis, ever since he pulled himself out of practice on July 28.

In his five seasons in the NFL, Prescott has twice been named to the Pro Bowl. He is coming off a 2020 season cut short after only five games by a significant ankle injury.

The Texans play against the Cowboys this Saturday evening in a preseason NFL matchup.
