Dak Prescott is expected to start at quarterback for the Dallas Cowboys when they face the Eagles later this month.

If you were expecting Tony Romo to return to the field for the Dallas Cowboys when they host the Eagles in a week and a half, well, you're probably in a minority by now.

But for those of you holding out hope (if that's the right word), you probably ought to let go now.

As further noted on NFL.com here:

Prescott broke Tom Brady's record (162) for most pass attempts without an interception to begin a career, which ended at 176 against Green Bay on Sunday. He earned a passer rating over 100.0 in five of six starts. Prescott has completed 68.7 percent of his passes, second-highest among quarterbacks that started every game this season (Matthew Stafford). His 8.2 yard per attempt average is the fifth highest in NFL.

Cowboys coach Jason Garrett told reporters on Wednesday that Romo hasn't been cleared to return to practice yet, though he is able to do some drills.
