The Dallas Cowboys are slowly coming to the end of their California training camp, and after Saturday’s pre-season loss to the Rams, looks like the Cowboys have found a backup quarterback.
Beau Bagley: Thank you, I’m now joined by our Silver Star Nation Cowboys Insider Lina Washington from cowboys training camp, Lina, Dak Prescott outplayed Jameill Showers on Saturday, sure sounds like he’s taken the backup role behind Tony Romo?
Lina Washington: Yes certainly look at the numbers and the numbers don’t lie, Prescott definitely outplayed Jameill Showers on Saturday with Dak Prescott completing 10 of his 12 passes for 139 yards and two touchdowns, no interceptions, so pretty decent coming out party in front of capacity record crowd for a preseason game at the L.A. Coliseum against the Rams, and Head Coach Jason Garrett when asked spoke about Dak’s professionalism.
Jason Garrett: When you have to stay locked in and stay focused on what you need to do to get better every day, and he’s done a good job, he’s handled every step along the way really well, like a pro.
Beau Bagley: Highly touted draft pick Ezekiel Elliott did not play over the weekend, can we expect him Friday night against Miami?
Lina Washington: The coaching staff likes to use the term deliberate in talking about guys coming off injury, so of course Elliott has missed a lot of time in taking a backseat being sideline with injury since August 2nd, and they’re all gearing up for game number two against the Miami Dolphins Friday at home, and they will be opening up The Star in Frisco, their new practice facility, so a lot to look forward to, hopefully one of those will be Ezekiel Elliott.
Beau Bagley: Hopefully we’ll see that highly touted running back on Saturday. Silver Star Nation Cowboys Insider Lina Washington, thank you Lina.
