Cooper Rush may need to saddle up at the starting quarterback position for the Cowboys for at least one more NFL Sunday with Dak Prescott being ruled questionable this weekend as he continues to nurse his thumb injury. Prescott was in practice for the first time since early September on Thursday, but possibly hasn’t seen enough practice reps to be thrown into the fire at Philadelphia.
Before being officially ruled questionable for Sunday, Jerry Jones praised Dak’s throwing speed coming back from injury on Friday morning and said that ‘all systems are a go’ in that department.
Jerry Jones was asked on @1053thefan if he expects Dak Prescott to start next week vs. the Lions: “I don’t want to say, but he has made a lot of progress. Throwing the ball with zip and (that’s) very, very important. How he is healing is just great. So all systems on go there.”— Jon Machota (@jonmachota) October 14, 2022
