Mississippi State Bulldogs quarterback Dak Prescott put together an impressive outing last weekend against the Texas A&M Aggies, which came after the loss of his mother. While the hurdle Prescott faces this week will not be nearly as difficult or significant, his status for this week’s match up against the Alabama Crimson Tide is in question.

Prescott was banged up in the second half of the Bulldogs loss to Texas A&M, and the elbow injury could keep him out of the team’s big game.

Mississippi State head coach Dan Mullen said that he would know more about Prescott’s status on Wednesday, but he hopes to have two quarterbacks healthy.

“You want to have two quarterbacks that are ready to play,” Mullen said. “You saw that the other night. Dak gets banged up but Tyler had played a bunch and was in the flow of the game and on the second play bangs out a touchdown pass. … It’s a pretty good safety net to have.”

Both Prescott and Tyler Russell have started games this season for the Bulldogs, so they will have experience at the position regardless of who is the No. 1 on Saturday.

However, if Prescott could repeat his success from last week, he would give the team their best chance at winning.
