Cooper Rush will start for the Cowboys this week against Washington, the third consecutive game Dak Prescott has missed. The Cowboys ruled out their starting quarterback after he missed practice all week.

Prescott is hoping for a Week 5 return against the Rams, but his return is predicated on his ability to grip the football.

Prescott underwent surgery on his throwing hand Sept. 12 and had stitches removed Monday.

The Cowboys will see the 2022 debut of Michael Gallup, who has no designation this week after full practices every day. Gallup tore his ACL in a Jan. 2 game against the Cardinals and had surgery in February after swelling subsided.

The Cowboys list tight end Dalton Schultz (knee), left guard Connor McGovern (ankle) and safety Jayron Kearse (knee) as questionable. All three players were limited in the three practices this week.

  1. Not as if they need him. The comodes are a USFL team. Micah Parsons is going to get a ton of sacks on Wentz and that swiss cheese they call an o-line in Washington

  2. Once they beat the Commanders we’ll see cowboys nation and media once again overreact and say how good the cowboys are. Whereas they needed to use the Tampa game as a true measure of how good/bad they are. When they play Philly and LA they’ll find out.

  3. Dak Prescott is the most overrated player on that team. People are looking at the team’s success since he went down and talking about McCarthy’s great coaching job when the truth is that there just isn’t a significant drop off between the two QBs. They’ll likely beat the Commodes and lose to LA and maybe Philly and the only thing we can say is that they are who we think they are: a chronically underperforming team with a mediocre coach who will lay a beat down on bad teams and wilt when facing actual competition.

    Stop it with this Cooper Rush nonsense. Dak is fine. A solid Top 8 to 12 QB. Tampa has a potentially historic defense. They
    shut down Aaron Rodgers and will shut down Mahomes too this week (17-14 chiefs). SThe problem with the Cowboys is the same as it has been since Dak was in Junior High. Poor coaching and a Mediocre GM who has no idea how to build a football team outside of superstar players who jump of the screen on film. No discipline, no depth,no innovation, no glues guys. How long must the cycle repeat itself until Jerry gets 100% of the blame.
