Dak Prescott was back in practice, and was not listed on Friday’s injury report. This is a sign that he will be returning to practice this weekend.
Robert Griffin III is thrilled to see Prescott again in action, but he believes the Dallas Cowboys shouldn’t abandon their approach that saw them win four of five games after Cooper Rush.
“Rush Hour is over in Dallas and Dak Attack is BACK IN BUSINESS,” Griffin wrote on Twitter. “There shouldn’t have been a debate in the first place, but the Dallas Cowboys can’t change their philosophy with Dak back. Run the offense through the RBs and stay on the attack with Micah Parsons and the defense.”
Rush Hour is over in Dallas and Dak Attack is BACK IN BUSINESS. There shouldn’t have been a debate in the first place, but the @dallascowboys can’t change their philosophy with Dak back. Run the offense through the RBs and stay on the attack with @MicahhParsons11 and the defense.

Dallas is ranked eighth in total defense and allowed the third-fewest point per game (16.3) this year. Six of the 24 NFL-leading 24 sacks have been accumulated by Parsons.
Rush threw for 956 yards in five starts. However, Ezekiel Elliott (backfield monster) and Tony Pollard (backfield monster) helped keep the offense on track.
Prescott’s return to the game opens up new possibilities for the passing game.
Dallas was second in the NFL for total offensive yards and points last season, just behind the league’s second-ranked pass attack. Although the Cowboys were able to win close games with low scoring teams, they don’t need to continue following this pattern.
It will be interesting to see how much Prescott has in his return. The quarterback can make a big impact against the poor defense of the Detroit Lions, which has allowed 34 points per games. If he is 100 percent, he will be able to make a huge statement.
Prescott could reignite the air game with the Cowboys, who have not scored more than 25 points this season. It’s comforting to know that they have a running back and can defend to win if necessary.
