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.
