Dak Prescott may be close to a return after the Cowboys’ first loss with Cooper Rush as their guide.
According to Mike Garafolo, of NFL Network Prescott is feeling “fantastic”, and will be back on the field next weekend against the Detroit Lions.
“Dak Prescott on whether he’ll be back this coming week for the #Cowboys against the #Lions: ‘Yeah, sure, that’s my plan.’,” tweeted Garafolo. “Dak Prescott added he felt ‘great, fantastic’ throwing pregame tonight.”
Dallas fans will welcome Prescott’s return to the lineup. The Cowboys offense has been lacking Prescott for the past few weeks. Melissa Stark from NBC’s Sunday Night Football stated that Prescott would have played Sunday against the Philadelphia Eagles if it was up to him.
Stark explained that Dak had surgery on September 12th. To stabilize his fracture. Dak was allowed to return within a period of four to six weeks, with week six starting next Sunday.
He said that he would have played tonight if he could. He did not want to push the plan, but he knew there was a plan. He stated that his grip strength is currently an A and that he would like it to become an A-plus.
Prescott said that he will return to the field after Dallas gives him the all clear. His trainers believe he is fully recovered. Prescott’s injury is not serious and he isn’t at risk of recurrence. However, his hand health is not the problem. He was unable to grasp a football and make the throws required for the NFL.
His thumb was limited, and control of the football would be difficult. Dallas decided to use Rush as a relief position at the top of their offense. The former Central Michigan signal-caller has done admirably in his backup role, going undefeated up to Sunday and leading Dallas before Sunday’s matchup against the unbeaten Eagles.
It doesn’t matter what, Dak Prescott is welcomed back to the Dallas Cowboys starting lineup. And it appears that this day will arrive in Week 7.
