Cowboys Confirm QB and Tight End Inactive For Sunday Night Football

The Dallas Cowboys are preparing to battle the undefeated division rival Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday Night Football, and while we all knew that Cooper Rush would be starting the game, meaning Dak Prescott would be inactive, they've unfortunately suffered another loss just hours ahead of the blockbuster clash. 

Despite having no game designation on the injury report Friday, a pre-cursor to a player ready to play on the weekend, Dalton Schultz has been declared out for the Cowboys crucial clash, meaning that Rush will have one less key weapon to rely on as Dallas look to make the NFC East a three-way tie for first place. In 4 games this year, Schultz has just 9 catches for 80 yards without a score, and despite his lack of production, this Dallas team is still looking incredible on the back of a dominant defence and a Quarterback who most importantly, plays turnover free football.

The Cowboys are bound to get healthy soon, and if they do, it's the strongest looking Cowboys unit that we've seen in recent years, and if they finally want to take that next step, Schultz is going to have to become the tight end that Dallas expect him to be.
