Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott is set to sit out Sunday night’s game against the Eagles, but he took another step back toward the lineup on Thursday.

Prescott officially participated in a practice for the first time since he injured his right thumb in the season opener against the Buccaneers. He was listed as a limited participant in a session that took place a day after he threw the ball after the team’s practice had concluded.

Cowboys head coach Mike McCarthy has suggested that Prescott’s return to the lineup won’t be on the table until he takes part in a full week of practice. Thursday’s return to the field makes it possible for Prescott to hit that milestone next week.

Linebacker Micah Parsons (groin) also made the move from out of practice to limited participation.

Running back Rico Dowdle (ankle) was the only Cowboys player out of practice Thursday. Defensive end DeMarcus Lawrence (chest), offensive lineman Jason Peters (chest), and tight end Dalton Schultz (knee) remained limited for the second straight day.

  1. He’s learning what he can do in 15 seconds. I’m sure it is a very limited menu of things.

  2. Glad Dallas has the luxury of not having to rush him back before he’s ready. They can handle a loss at Philly and still be in a good position to make the playoffs or challenge for the division title

  3. Dak should be traded to the Panthers. The Cowboys need a system QB who doesn’t care about stats and is a game manager who doesn’t mess up their historically incredible defense brilliantly built by Jerry Jones and Stephen Jones. They can use all those picks to improve their defense and offensive line and win multiple Super Bowls like Jerry has done before. Jerry is a proven winner who cares so much about the fans he is clearly unwilling to part with Dak because he knows that Dak is the most popular QB in football, but in the end he will do what is best for the team.

  4. Yes Dallas D looks good during a eye test but they’ve been playing olines ranked 19th & up That would do wonders for any team in the NFL
