Dallas Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott suffered a calf strain on the last play of Sunday's 35-29 victory over the New England Patriots, the team announced postgame, according to Michael Gehlken of the Dallas Morning News.

Prescott isn't expected to miss time and is "looking good" after an MRI on Monday, a source told Ian Rapoport of NFL Network.

Dallas has a bye in Week 7 before facing the Minnesota Vikings on Oct. 31.

The Cowboys walked off the Patriots after Prescott found wide receiver CeeDee Lamb for a 35-yard touchdown in overtime.

Prescott was keeping his right foot off the ground and was helped to the locker room after the contest. He wore a protective boot during his postgame press conference.

"It was a little pain. Didn't like what I felt. I could've kept playing if I had to. I'll be fine," Prescott said, according to Jon Machota of The Athletic.

The 28-year-old Prescott suffered a compound fracture and dislocation of his right ankle in Week 5 last year and underwent season-ending surgery.

A two-time Pro Bowler, Prescott has put his name into the MVP conversation this season. He entered Week 6 with a 116.9 passer rating - the best of his career - and torched the Patriots for 445 yards and three touchdowns. The 2016 Offensive Rookie of the Year also tossed one interception on 36-for-51 passing Sunday.

The Cowboys, winners of five straight, enter their bye week as one of the NFL's hottest teams.
