Dak Prescott will remain in rehab group at practice

Cowboys head coach Mike McCarthy said that quarterback Dak Prescott had a good visit with doctors about his right thumb on Tuesday, but there won’t be any change to his status at practice on Wednesday.

McCarthy told reporters at his press conference that Prescott will continue working with the team’s rehab group rather than participating with the full roster.

Prescott had surgery on the thumb after injuring it in Week One and he had stitches removed last week, but McCarthy still needs to rebuild strength before he’ll be able to return to the lineup. That’s in line with what Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said about Prescott’s status on Tuesday and it points to Cooper Rush making his fourth straight start when the Cowboys play the Rams this weekend.

They’ve won the first three starts, which has made it much easier to be patient and wait until Prescott is fully ready to get back on the field.

  1. As long as they keep winning with Rush…he will remain on the sideline. He will only be back after back-to-back losses.

  2. What if Cooper wins 4 starts and Prescott comes back and loses 4. Would that be a QB controversy? Hey, a boy can dream right?…

  3. Dak…meet Drew Bledsoe. He’s going to explain to the how you need to conduct yourself from here forward

  4. Dr Jerry kept dak on active roster despite almost everyone thinking he’ll miss more than 4 games. Could have used that roster spot for someone who could contribute lol

  5. Dak Prescott reminds me of that co-worker we all have that looks extremely busy all day long,but never really gets anything done.
