Prescott (calf) is scheduled to take part in individual drills Wednesday, while backup quarterback Cooper Rush will take more first-team reps in practice, Michael Gehlken of The Dallas Morning News reports.

Head coach Mike McCarthy said he wants to make sure Rush is ready to play, even though Prescott has "improved every day" since straining his calf at the tail end of the Cowboy's Week 6 win over New England. A bye week helped Prescott's chances to avoid a missed game, and McCarthy left the door open for the quarterback to jump in for some team work later in Wednesday's practice if everything goes well with individual drills. Either way, Prescott is expected to be listed as a limited participant on Wednesday's practice report, though he should be ready to go by the time Sunday's game against the Vikings arrives.
