Jerry Jones Has Tuesday Update On Cowboys Quarterback Dak Prescott

Cowboys owner Jerry Jones

Dak Prescott made his long-awaited return to the Dallas Cowboys offense on Sunday.

Sounds like there's no concern that he might have to return to the sideline.

Prescott had missed the Cowboys' previous five games after undergoing surgery to repair a fracture in his right thumb suffered during the team's season-opening loss. On Tuesday, team owner Jerry Jones said the thumb held up well during Prescott's return to the field, a 24-6 win over the Detroit Lions.

"Jerry Jones said on 105.3 The Fan that Dak Prescott had 'no adverse aspects,' when it came to his surgically-repaired thumb following Sunday’s game vs. Detroit. Jones expects it to be better and better as time goes on." -- Todd Archer

Speaking on his weekly radio show with 105.3 The Fan, Jones also added that he expects Prescott's thumb will continue to heal and his grip on the football will improve with time.

Prescott was efficient if unspectacular during his first game back. He completed 19 of 25 passes for 207 yards and a touchdown.
