Cowboys Owner Jerry Jones Announces Surprising Dak Prescott Update

Cowboys owner Jerry Jones

In Week 1, Dak Prescott suffered yet another significant injury. Initial reports suggested the Cowboys quarterback would miss the next six to eight weeks. Apparently, that's not what Jerry Jones was told. 

Jones is lowering that timeline down by several weeks. In fact, he's now telling reporters that his franchise quarterback "could" be back in two weeks. That's pretty optimistic considering Prescott was just in surgery last week. 

If true, this would be a significant update for the Dallas Cowboys, who aspire to win the NFC East this year. 

"Jerry Jones said QB Dak Prescott could be back in 2 weeks. That's very optimistic. But it could be. We are going to get him back sooner than later," said Clarence Hill Jr. 

In the meantime until Dak Prescott returns, the Cowboys are moving forward with Cooper Rush. He led them to a 20-17 win over the Cincinnati Bengals in Week 2. Rush had 235 yards passing and one touchdown in the win. 

Dallas will try and make it two straight wins next Monday night against the New York Giants.
