The Dallas Cowboys’ worst fears have come true. And it’s just the first game of the 2022 season.

He was hit in his throwing hand as he was attempting to throw a pass. This injury will require Prescott to have surgery in the coming days.

At this time, it is believed that Prescott will miss several weeks of action. Without their best player, the Cowboys have been put in a tough situation.

When the Cowboys set their 53-man roster, they chose not to give a roster spot to a backup quarterback. The team signed Cooper Rush and Will Grier, who had been Prescott’s backups last year, to the practice squad.

Before Sunday’s game, Rush was elevated to the active roster. Little did he know, the Cowboys were going to need him in the fourth quarter.

If the Cowboys want to be a player later this season, they’re going to have to sign a veteran until Prescott returns. Rush is not the answer.

He had a lackluster performance on Sunday following Prescott’s exit. He had just 64 yards.

He started and guided the Cowboys to a win over the Minnesota Vikings last year.
