When will Dak Prescott return to play for the Dallas Cowboys?
Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said Dak Prescott will not go on injured reserve as he is confident the quarterback could be back to play in a month.
Despite earlier reports that Dallas Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott would miss 7-9 weeks of the regular season after sustaining a thumb injury in their Week 1 loss to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, team owner Jerry Jones is confident that the quarterback will return to the field in about a month. Because of this, they do not plan to put him on the injured reserve list.
During an interview he did on 105.3 The Fan, Jones announced that they hope the 29-year-old quarterback will be ready to return to the gridiron sooner than medical experts expected at first.
“I think what we’re going to do here is we won’t be putting him on IR (injured reserve), which means we want him to be in consideration for playing within the next four games. Consequently, the people that are ready to play quarterback for us are the ones that played all preseason- Cooper Rush and (Will) Grier,” “said Jones.
Confidence in Rush
In this way, Cooper Rush will be the one who will start next Sunday when the Dallas Cowboys face the Cincinnati Bengals at AT&T Stadium. The Bengals also come from losing in their debut against the Pittsburgh Steelers.
“Those guys know the offense well, they have a lot of reps and therefore give us our best chance,” the Dallas owner said of the two quarterbacks.
Prescott suffered a broken right thumb against the Bucs and had surgery Monday to repair it. Jones said the medical staff’s prognosis was that “Dak has a real shot at getting the ball back pretty quickly.”
