Elbow injury leaves Dak Prescott questionable for Tide game

After fighting through the grief of losing his mother to cancer in order to play in Mississippi State’s last game, Dak Prescott will now have to fight through injury to play in the next one.

Head coach Dan Mullen said Monday that the quarterback is officially “questionable” for this Saturday’s game against top-ranked Alabama.  Prescott suffered an elbow injury in the fourth quarter of this weekend’s loss to Texas A&M and did not return.

After not practicing Monday because of the injury, Mullen said Prescott’s availability for the Tide game could become clearer Wednesday.

Prescott has started six of 10 games this season while Tyler Russell has started the other four, including the Aggies loss.  The latter is listed as the starter on the depth chart heading into the Alabama game

“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.

    Ouch! This game will get ugly quick no matter who plays QB. Other than Bama, does anyone in the SEC play defense this year? IMO, outside of Bama, the. SEC is no better than the other big three conferences….sorry AAC…at least you get a. BCS berth.

    My heart goes out to Dak Prescott. What a horrible series of events to endure. If playing is helping him cope with the loss of his mother, then I pray he’ll be able to play without risk of further injury.

    Have to see he played outstanding in the 2nd half against the Aggies under some really extraordinary circumstances. Really made it a game at the end.

    As someone who has recently been what he’s been through, my heart really goes out to him and I’m so impressed by his poise and ability to play through it.
