Cowboys Quarterback Dak Prescott Takes Significant Step In Practice This Week

Dak Prescott, Dallas Cowboys

Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott is taking quite the significant step forward in practice this week. 

Prescott has been recovering from thumb surgery. Initial timelines suggested he would return in mid- to late-October. However, it appears he's far closer to returning than initially suggested.

Cowboys head coach Mike McCarthy announced this Friday morning that Prescott "did some light throwing" in practice. He's still dealing with swelling, but getting closer to a return. 

A significant step for Prescott in Dallas. 

"Cowboys coach Mike McCarthy dressed up for today’s news conference. (He had a TV interview before) Things have gone well for Michael Gallup (knee) this week. Cowboys hopeful he’ll be active Sunday. Dak Prescott did some light throwing yesterday. Still dealing with some swelling," said Jon Machota.

Dak Prescott continues making progress back from his injury. Cooper Rush, in the meantime, will run the show. 

Rush has led the Cowboys to two straight victories. He will try and make it three straight this Sunday vs. the Commanders. 

It's possible Prescott makes his return for Week 5 vs. the Los Angeles Rams.
