Dak Prescott’s right shoulder strain hasn’t been a cause for concern in Vegas, but the Dallas Cowboys will be happy that their star quarterback is back on the field at practice. 

The Dallas quarterback reportedly is returning to a limited practice on Monday, and could make some major strides to play later in the preseason.

The Cowboys have already played in two preseason games since they were a part of the NFL’s Hall of Fame Game, but Prescott has been eying a return against the Houston Texans in the second week of the preseason. 

WynnBET hasn’t moved Prescott’s odds to lead the NFL in passing yards (+400) or win the league’s MVP award (+1500). He’s also the betting favorite to be named Comeback Player of the Year in the 2021 season. 

Dallas is favored to win the NFC East this season at +135 odds, but Prescott’s health is the key for the Cowboys’ success. Dallas went just 6-10 last season when Prescott missed 11 games due to a fractured ankle, so any injury that he suffers immediately brings concern for Cowboys fans. 

Now that Prescott is returning to practice with plenty of time before the team’s regular season opener against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, there should be a lot of optimism around the Cowboys and their offense this season. 

If Dallas can play slightly better defensively after allowing the fifth-most points in the NFL last season, Prescott, Amari Cooper and company will have a good chance of leading Dallas back to the postseason.
