Tuesday tidbits you might have missed

NFL

  1. The Dallas Cowboys have decided not to place quarterback Dak Prescott on the IR in hopes they will see his return before he will have to miss 4 games, which is the minimum he would have to be out if placed on the IR. Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said during his weekly appearance on the teams flagship radio station :

“The team wants Prescott to be a consideration for playing within the next four games. We feel very good after surgery, after listening to the medical people, that Dak has a real chance to be back out there throwing the ball real quick.”

  1. Kansas City Chiefs head coach Andy Reid said after the game on Sunday that the Arizona Cardinals’ turf was definitely a factor in the injuries to Chiefs rookie cornerback Trent McDuffie and kicker Harrison Butker. Reid said about the State Farm Stadium’s turf after they resodded it:

“Was a little bit loose. It was part of the Butker injury and McDuffie injury. The turf picked up and I would tell you that that did have something to do with it. If it didn’t, I would tell you that, too. So it’s not an excuse by any means, but I mean, you all can see it. Watch the tape.”
Andy Reid reiterated that the turf in Arizona contributed to both Butker's and McDuffie's injuries — Cody Tapp (@codybtapp) September 13, 2022

  1. The Indianapolis Colts have waived kicker Rodrigo Blankenship after he missed what would have been a game-winning 42-yard field goal in OT against the Houston Texans. The game ultimately ended in a 20-20 tie.

The #Colts are signing kickers Chase McLaughlin and Lucas Havrisik to the practice squad, per sources. So after cutting Rodrigo Blankenship, Indy adds two guys it knows — McLaughlin was there in 2019, Havrisik in rookie camp — and plan to elevate one for Sunday at Jacksonville — Tom Pelissero (@TomPelissero) September 13, 2022
