If there's one player the Dallas Cowboys cannot afford to lose, it's quarterback Dak Prescott. That's why his right calf injury in Sunday's overtime win over the New England Patriots was especially concerning.

According to reports, Prescott actually suffered the injury on the final play of the game: A 35-yard game-winning touchdown pass to CeeDee Lamb. The two-time Pro Bowler will undergo an MRI on Monday to determine the exact nature of this injury.
