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.
