A key point of interest in this camp is how Dak Prescott connects with an overhauled receiving corps.
What fans don't particularly want to see is Prescott run the ball. While this is a successful option during the regular season, the risk/reward ratio during a meaningless preseason game lowers the attractiveness.
Yet there was Prescott in the preseason opener, facing third-and-nine, taking off when the pocket collapsed with no receivers open. He bolted up the middle, dove under an airborne defender and picked up 12 yards and the first down. Five plays later he threw a touchdown pass to rookie Michael Gallup.
Head coach Jason Garrett said there's no edict that discourages the quarterback from scrambling in preseason games.
"No, we don't tell him that,'' Garrett said. "We tell him to go play.''
