Former Mississippi State QB Dak Prescott got first-team reps at Dallas Cowboys training camp Wednesday, and the rookie looked good in his first practice throwing to Dez Bryant and Jason Witten.
Cowboys QB Tony Romo got the day off Wednesday, giving the rookie Prescott his second day of reps with the first team in training camp, according to ESPN.com’s Todd Archer. However, this is the first time he’s gotten to take those reps with Bryant and Witten on the field, both of whom had the day off the last time Prescott worked with the first string.
Archer wrote that Prescott “was as sharp as he has been all camp,” completing 13 of 16 passes and 5 of 6 in the two-minute drill. Archer praised Prescott’s ball placement and the way he managed the clock to set up a tying field goal during the drill.
Prescott is currently second on the Cowboys depth chart. He’ll probably hold onto that spot unless they sign another quarterback before the season. Former Boise State QB Kellen Moore was slated to back up Romo before he suffered an ankle injury last week.
Dallas selected Prescott in the fourth round of the draft with the No. 135 overall pick. He completed more than 66 percent of his passes for 3,793 yards and 29 touchdowns with five interceptions in his senior season with Mississippi State.
