Cowboys fans, you’ve got it. Cooper Rush will likely play under center on Sunday against Carson Wentz, the Commanders. Prescott anticipates that he’ll be ready for his desired return against the Los Angeles Rams in Week 5.
This is huge news for the Cowboys who have been without their starting quarterback since Week 1’s loss to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Rush has performed admirably in his place, but the Cowboys’ offense is eager to return to the norm of Prescott at the center.
Prescott would need to rest for an extra week after Week 5. His next chance of returning would be Week 6 against Philadelphia Eagles.
