Arizona Cardinals

Cardinals first-round QB Josh Rosen (thumb) was seen throwing at the open portion of Friday's practice. Rosen injured his thumb after making contact with a teammate's helmet on Monday, but it looks like he's already on the mend. He'll be a game-time decision for Sunday's preseason game in Dallas. Regardless of Rosen's health, Sam Bradford is locked in as the Cardinals' Week 1 starter.

Dallas Cowboys

Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said there's a "good chance" Dak Prescott won't play in anymore preseason games this season.

"I think we'll be pretty conservative here," Jones said in a radio interview with 105.3 The Fan. If true, Prescott finishes the 2018 preseason completing 10-of-15 passes for 86 yards (5.7 YPA) and one touchdown. Prescott also showed a rapport with third-round rookie Michael Gallup, who in particular shined in the club's preseason opener with an impressive 30-yard touchdown catch from Dak.

NFL Betting Trends

Arizona

The Cardinals are 2-6 against the spread in their last eight road games.

Dallas

The Cowboys are 3-1-1 against the number in their last five games overall.

Prediction

The Cowboys are likely to rest starts Ezekiel Elliott and Dak Prescott while their offensive line is in disarray. Tyron Smith is dealing with a hamstring injury as well as chronic back issues. Travis Frederick is out indefinitely with Guillian-Barre’ syndrome. Zack Martin is dealing with a bone bruise and hyper-extended left knee. And La’el Collins has a sore ankle/calf. I’m fading the ‘Boys tonight.
