Mike McCarthy Announces Wednesday Update On Quarterback Dak Prescott

Mike McCarthy, Dallas Cowboys

It appears the Dallas Cowboys are planning on Cooper Rush, not Dak Prescott, under center this Sunday night vs. the Philadelphia Eagles. 

Mike McCarthy announced this Wednesday that Prescott, who's working his way back from hand surgery, will do some "light throwing" after practice today. 

However, the Cowboys are preparing with Cooper Rush as the starting quarterback right now. 

It's unlikely Prescott is ready to go on Sunday in a pivotal NFC East battle. 

"Mike McCarthy said Dak Prescott will 'do some light throwing after practice,' and the Cowboys are preparing as if Cooper Rush will start Sunday vs. the Eagles," said Todd Archer.

The good news for the Cowboys is Cooper Rush is rolling lately. He's won four straight games since taking over for Dak Prescott.

But the issue at hand is the Eagles are unbeaten. Rush will have to be perfect for the Cowboys to get a division win. 

The Cowboys play the Eagles in Philadelphia this Sunday night.
