Summary from the Final Week of Camp
Fans and the front office breathed a collective sigh of relief this past week as Dak Prescott returned to practice and steadily increased his workload. On the final day of camp, in joint practices with the Jaguars, Prescott fully opened up and threw aggressively downfield with pinpoint accuracy and velocity. Offensive coordinator Kellen Moore expressed full confidence in his franchise quarterback’s shoulder. “We’re just playing ball at this point,” Moore said. “We’re not looking at anything from a limitation standpoint … From his standpoint, we’re getting ready for the regular season and Tampa Bay.” The backup situation has been tenuous all summer, but Cooper Rush is making a late push for the job. He tore the Texans apart last week (10-of-12 for 97 yards and two touchdowns) and started the final preseason game before giving way to Garett Gilbert.
The preseason ends as it began, with Ezekiel Elliott and Tony Pollard locked into the No. 1 and No. 2 roles, respectively. Elliott was treated with kid gloves all summer by design, but he was a fixture at practices and looks more like the player who led the NFL in rushing than the guy who had difficulty breaking tackles last year. Pollard wasn’t as consistent in practices, but he’s immensely talented and had no viable competition for touches behind Elliott. Rico Dowdle’s stranglehold on the RB3 spot crumbled after his season-ending injury. The question is whether Dallas goes with just two tailbacks for the Week 1 roster or considers adding a veteran from another roster.
