After sustaining a broken thumb on his throwing arm, Dak Prescott, Dallas Cowboys quarterback, has been out of action for the past week.
Fans learned earlier this week that Prescott will not be returning to the field for the showdown against the Los Angeles Rams. Prescott was unable to hold the football after returning to practice.
On Thursday, he made a significant recovery step. He was holding a football for his first time today, and was seen at practice.
“Cowboys QB Dak Prescott has incorporated holding a football in his side work with director of rehabilitation Britt Brown,” Cowboys reporter Michael Gehlken said.
Dallas lost to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in the opening game of the season, but has since won three consecutive games with Cooper Rush as its backup quarterback.
Rush will be able to make another start against the Super Bowl champion Los Angeles Rams on Sunday.
Prescott’s return seems only a matter time, however.
