After a stellar performance in the preseason, former Mississippi State QB Dak Prescott may soon get a chance to start in the regular season.
Dallas Cowboys starting QB Tony Romo suffered a compression fracture in his back in the team’s preseason game against Seattle on Thursday, according to ESPN’s Todd Archer. He could be out for 6-10 weeks, which could leave Prescott as the team’s No. 1 quarterback for the first part of the season.

The Cowboys may pursue a free agent quarterback to add depth, but Prescott still could be the starter even if they do.
Prescott has astounded in the preseason. He’s completed 39 of 50 passes for 454 yards and 5 touchdowns and no interceptions to go with 2 rushing scores through three games.
