Although Dak Prescott may be taking another step in his recovery process, the Dallas Cowboys are moving forward as though Cooper Rush will be the starter at Sunday’s Philadelphia game.
Per ESPN’s Todd Archer
“Mike McCarthy said Dak Prescott will ‘do some light throwing after practice,’ and the Cowboys are preparing as if Cooper Rush will start Sunday vs. the Eagles.”

Prescott has had a fractured thumb ever since Week 1. But you can’t tell from the standings.
The Cowboys rallied around their backup Cooper Rush and rode his steady play (aswell as his lights-out defense), to four consecutive wins.
According to reports, Dak has reached the point where he can grasp a football without any problems. However, Wednesday will be the first time that Dallas’ star quarterback throws to Cowboys receivers after the injury.
