Jerry Jones, owner of the Dallas Cowboys, is optimistic that Dak Prescott will be back soon.
Jones made it clear that Dallas would not place Prescott on the injured reserve during a Tuesday morning appearance on 105.3 The Fan
Jones believes Prescott can play in the next four games.
“I think what we’re going to do here is we won’t be putting him on IR, which means we want him to be consideration for playing within the next 4 games,” Jones said. “We will NOT put him on IR.”

Prescott’s return in four weeks is the best case scenario for the Cowboys. But that’s asking too much from a quarterback who had surgery only 24 hours earlier.
Tom Pelissero, NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero, stated that Prescott’s recovery time will depend on the healing process and when he starts throwing again.
Prescott’s operation was successful, and that is the good news.
Cooper Rush will be the Cowboys’ quarterback in the interim. This weekend, he’ll be leading the team against the Cincinnati Bengals.
