Jerry Jones Announces Official Tuesday Update On Dak Prescott

Cowboys owner Jerry Jones has announced an official update on quarterback Dak Prescott this Tuesday morning. Unfortunately, it's exactly a positive one. 

During an interview on 105.3 The Fan today, Jones was asked whether Prescott is capable of gripping the ball yet. His answer is pretty discouraging.

"No, not well enough to play," he said. 

It sounds like we are still a ways away from seeing Prescott return to the gridiron for the Cowboys. 

"Is Cowboys QB Dak Prescott currently able to grip the ball with surgically repaired thumb? Jerry Jones to @1053thefan: 'No, not well enough to play,'" said Jones, via Jori Epstein.

A disappointing development. There was speculation Dak Prescott could surprise us all and play this weekend, but it sounds like that's not even a possibility now.

That's alright, though. Cooper Rush is playing extremely well in Prescott's absence. The Cowboys have won three straight, including two over division opponents. 

Prescott will likely have to wait another week or two before getting back under center.
