The Dallas Cowboys have had a pair of All-Pro’s out of their lineup over the last four games.
Sean Lee and Ezekiel Elliott have been out of the lineup for the last three games, with Elliott out four games. With both their star players out of the lineup, it hasn’t been a pleasant span of games. The team has gone 1-3 in those four games, while falling out of the playoff hunt in doing so.
The Cowboys nearly lost a third team leader this past weekend. Dak Prescott was forced to get X-rays on his right hand after he was hit in the hand by a helmet. He didn’t miss a play, but his hand swelled up good. That put fear in the head of Cowboys fans everywhere. Those fears seem to be able to be put to rest moving forward.
Cowboys have avoided disaster, at least for the time being!
Jerry Jones says that the Cowboys will have Prescott in the lineup and the injury isn’t considered an issue moving forward (via Jon Machota).
“I feel good about it.”
This past week, they were able to inch their way back inside the playoff hunt, but will need to win the remaining four games to have a shot. Unfortunately, the Cowboys don’t control their own destiny. They will also need to have help from the outside to make the playoffs. No need to worry about what is going on outside of this locker room, just take care of your own business. Win your games, and worry about the rest later.

Jason Garrett says it seems like Dak Prescott is fine. Saw him this morning, hand looked fine #cowboyswire

With Lee returning this week, and Zeke coming back in two weeks, the Cowboys are finally getting back to full strength. Let’s just hope it’s not too late and the team can do the unthinkable and make the playoffs come January.
How worried were you when you saw Prescott head for X-rays Thursday night?
