On the other hand, the Packers are eager to showcase Jordan Love as their third consecutive franchise quarterback on a national stage and affirm their Super Bowl aspirations. However, a recent announcement revealed that the Cowboys are contending with a quarterback injury.

Fortunately, the overall health of the Cowboys is robust as they approach the playoff game against the Packers. Only one player, backup quarterback Cooper Rush, has a questionable status due to an illness that kept him out of practice on Friday. Despite being a backup, Rush’s potential absence adds an intriguing element to the situation, especially considering his unclear ailment.

It’s noteworthy that the backup quarterback’s injury may not significantly impact the game unless it leads to an unforeseen absence by Dak Prescott. In the event of Rush’s unavailability, Trey Lance is likely to serve as Prescott’s backup during the wild-card round. The circumstances surrounding Rush’s health will be closely monitored as the game approaches, adding an element of uncertainty to the Cowboys’ preparations for this crucial matchup.
