Dak Prescott is now one Tony Romo injury away from being a starting NFL quarterback.

The former Mississippi State star has ended the Dallas Cowboys’ search for a veteran backup quarterback to act as an insurance policy for Romo’s aging body. Cowboys owner Jerry Jones confirmed as much on 1053 The Fan Tuesday morning.

Prescott was one of the SEC’s most respected players during his four-year career at Mississippi State. As a senior, Prescott threw for 3,793 yards and 29 touchdowns with only 5 interceptions.

So far, he has been one of the top rookies in the NFL’s preseason. Prescott made his debut by going 6-for-7 on his opening drive for the Cowboys and┬ácompleted the series with a touchdown pass to Dez Bryant. Since then, he’s been nothing short of spectacular.

He’s made a lot of fans during his time in Dallas, and, more importantly, he’s got a fan in the Cowboys’ owner.
