The day that that Dallas Cowboys fans have been waiting for has arrived. The team no longer needs to count on Cooper Rush.
Dak Prescott returned from injury on Sunday against the Detroit Lions. He made his return at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas.
He had been sidelined since the season-opener. He was injured in the fourth quarter against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers at AT&T Stadium.
Buccaneers star defensive end Shaq Barrett hit Prescott on the follow through. This caused Prescott to leave the game.
The Cowboys initially said that Prescott would be out 6-8 weeks after surgery. With Prescott sidelined, Rush guided the team to a 4-1 record.
Rush had his worst performance of the season last weekend against the Philadelphia Eagles.
Cowboys owner and GM Jerry Jones did not want to rush back their franchise quarterback. He was very patient in his decision to hold out Prescott.
There was some speculation that he may have started last Sunday against the Eagles. However, Jones held him out as Rush suffered his first loss as a starter in the league.
A plate was inserted into Prescott’s thumb to stabilize it. This was Prescott’s first thumb injury of his career, even dating back to when he played for the Mississippi State Bulldogs.© 2007-2023 The Capital Sports Report. All Rights Reserved.
