DALLAS The Cowboys might only need Cooper Rush for one more game as their quarterback.
Rush will begin Monday night in New Jersey when Dallas faces the Giants.
Dak Prescott is making his way to recovery from an injury. Because of a fractured thumb in his throwing hand, he had surgery last week.
Although initial estimates indicated Prescott would be out six to eight weeks, Jerry Jones, the Giants owner, said that Prescott may miss the Giants game.
Jones said that Prescott would be able to play in the Cowboys’ game against Washington on his radio show.
“Everybody recognizes that he’ll be back sooner rather than later, as far as the timeline. And uh, it really could be a minimal of uh, two weeks up here in my mind. Now, that’s optimistic. That’s very optimistic but it could be. And he’s got the kind of injury the kind of repair there that will allow him not to have a lot of fear about reinjuring it, just a question of the grip,” he said.
Jones stated that it is still too early to know if Dalton Schultz, tight end, will play Monday night. Schultz was injured in the knee late Sunday’s match.
