Through two games he has gone 22 of 27 for 338 yards and four touchdowns with no interceptions. Prescott has locked up the backup job in Dallas and most likely a future starting job as well.

Washington Redskins running back Matt Jones went down hard on his left shoulder Friday night and was forced out of the game with what could have been a severe injury. He was later diagnosed with a sprained AC joint in his shoulder, which is one of the best possible options for him. His preseason is likely over, however, there is a decent chance he is ready for Week 1. Head coach Jay Gruden does not believe he'll be sidelined for long. "I don't think it'll be a long injury," Gruden said. "(It's a) slight separation of his AC joint."
