With quarterback Dak Prescott sidelined with a sprained right knee, Dak Prescott has the Cowboys looking to find a pass catcher behind Dez Bryant.
Prescott has been getting reps at quarterback for weeks, but the team is still figuring out how to get him the ball.
“I’ve never played a game as an NFL quarterback before,” Prescott said Wednesday.
“So I’ve got a little bit of time to learn.”
Prescott said he feels comfortable with the play of his quarterback and is confident in his ability to play in a hurry.
“Coach (Tony) Romo has told me to take advantage of that opportunity,” Prescott told The Associated Press.
“It’s going to be fun.”
The Cowboys are hoping that they can build off a 4-3 start and get a win over the Denver Broncos.
The Cowboys have lost four straight games and five of six at home.
Prescott will have plenty of opportunities to start this week against the New York Giants and Minnesota Vikings.
The two teams met in the NFC title game.
Prescott threw for 3,742 yards and 25 touchdowns during the 2015 season.
