Mike McCarthy Announces Significant Monday Update On Dak Prescott

Mike McCarthy, Dallas Cowboys

It looks like we have seen the last of Cooper Rush starting at quarterback for the Dallas Cowboys. 

Mike McCarthy announced just moments ago that he expects Dak Prescott to be good to go for Week 7. 

Prescott has been out since Week 1 after undergoing surgery on his right thumb. Rush has been running the show ever since. 

Prescott, the team's franchise quarterback, is going to return this week, barring a setback. 

"Mike McCarthy said the Cowboys expect Dak Prescott (thumb) to be cleared today or tomorrow by the medical staff and return to practice Wednesday," said Jon Machota.

McCarthy adds he expects Prescott to return to practice on Wednesday. The Cowboys coach has previously admitted that he likes his players to practice by Wednesday to play on Sunday. It looks like Prescott will meet that criteria. 

Prescott likely returns for a good return game. The Cowboys play the Lions this Sunday.
