Dak Prescott is much closer to returning from injury than most of us are anticipating. The Dallas Cowboys quarterback has revealed he could return for the team's Week 5 game vs. the Los Angeles Rams.
Prescott is currently recovering from thumb surgery. He sustained the injury in the Cowboys' Week 1 loss to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
The initial belief was that Prescott wouldn't be able to return until mid- to late-October. However, it appears he could be back under center in the next week or so.
Prescott revealed this Tuesday that he's targeting Week 5 vs. the Rams as a return date.
"#Cowboys QB Dak Prescott showed me his thumb post stitch removal. No swelling. Healing. Tells me Cowboys/Rams week 5 is a game that he could possibly start. Get the sense he would go Sunday vs. Washington if he could but this will be a team/Dak decision to be smart," said Jane Slater.
The good news for the Cowboys is they have no need to rush Dak Prescott back into action. Cooper Rush is handling things just fine.
With Rush under center, the Cowboys have won two games, one against the Bengals and the other vs. the Giants.
Rush will likely run the show again this Sunday vs. the Commanders.
