After Jerry Jones’ remarks, Cowboys fans started talking about the “quarterback controversy” in Dallas. As Cooper Rush won Monday’s second consecutive start, it seems that the noise is getting louder as Dak Prescott makes his way back.
Rush had a great answer for the New York Giants’ situation following Dallas’ victory.
“Well, I keep winning,” Rush told ESPN’s Lisa Salters. “As long as I’m in there, let’s just keep winning, playing smart, trusting each other, both sides of the ball and we’ll be alright.”
Rush has been the Cowboys’ starting quarterback since Prescott’s Week1 injury. He’s won victories over the Giants and the Cincinnati Bengals. Rush has thrown for 450 yards in each of his starts and two touchdowns, so he will have more than likely to improve on those numbers when Dallas faces the Washington Commanders.
Dallas was worried that their quarterback would be absent for a prolonged period of time after Dak Preston left the season opener against Tampa Bay. Since then, injury news has become more positive.
Prescott had a stitch taken out of his thumb on Monday.
ESPN’s Lisa Salters updated viewers with the latest update, discussing what stitch removal means for Prescott’s return to football. Prescott now hopes to be able to grip football and throw some throws. Although it might not seem like much, it is progress for the Cowboys.
“He got the one long stitch removed from his surgically repaired right thumb,” Salters said. “That stitch was taken out this afternoon, here at the stadium. There’s still some swelling in his thumb but he said it feels great. He was going to talk to the doctor right after and hopefully, start gripping and throwing the football again.”
