Dallas Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott had the week to recover from yet another injury, and is so far on track to play this weekend. Head coach Mike McCarthy reiterated on Thursday that this is still the plan, as he had a good response from practicing this week on a limited basis.
The Philadelphia Eagles traded away their best quarterback to the New York Jets earlier this week, but starter Jalen Hurts says he'll never forget the great Joe Flacco. He has blessed many of us, I agree. "I expressed that to Joe, and I just wanted to let him know that everything I said before those games, I truly believed it from the standpoint of the things that he’s been able to do over his career, the knowledge he’s poured on me, his voice in the room. It meant a lot to me. I wish him the best of luck as he gets the opportunity to go out there and play."
Cleveland Browns quarterback Baker Mayfield is still a question mark for Week Eight, as he's dealing with an intense shoulder injury. He missed last week, but isn't giving up so easily. Offensive coordinator Alex Van Pelt stated Thursday that while he practiced on a limited basis,"he practiced yesterday a good amount and looked good."
As everyone (loudly) wonders if the league has figured out Patrick Mahomes, he told his Kansas City Chiefs teammates that he knows he needs to improve and plans on doing just that. "You see it kind of get me in certain games every single year, and it’s something I have to go back to and learn from and be better at. There were times where I maybe could have stepped and found a soft spot in the pocket where instead I kind of got out of there and tried to make something happen."
