Over the past few weeks, Jerry Jones, owner of the Dallas Cowboys, has been asked this question numerous times:
When will Dak Prescott return to the field?
Jones was asked Friday if Prescott would be playing against the Los Angeles Rams in Week 5.
“I just don’t know. I don’t know that anybody does,” Jone said during his weekly appearance on 105.3 The Fan. “You’ll have to see how the strength goes. If anybody in the world can get back out there, he’s going to get back out there.”

Prescott will miss his third consecutive game this weekend. In Week 1, Prescott, Cowboys quarterback, broke his thumb while throwing against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. The issue is currently being treated by a surgeon.
Prescott stated earlier this week that he and his Cowboys were “looking” at next weeks matchup against The Rams as a potential return date.
Cooper Rush, the Dallas backup, has helped the team win both games without Prescott. He will be looking to continue this streak against the Washington Commanders on Sunday.
