The Cowboys confirmed the older Prescott's death in a brief statement. There was no information on how or where Jace Prescott died.
The older Prescott was an offensive lineman a decade ago at Northwestern State in Louisiana, where the Prescott brothers Tad, Jace and Dak grew up. Jace Prescott played three seasons at Northwestern State, starting all 11 games in his final season in 2010.
"The loss of Tad and Dak's brother is devastating," the Cowboys said in their statement. "At this incredibly difficult time, the Prescott family asks only for prayers and respect for their privacy."
