New Practice Update For Dallas Cowboys Quarterback Dak Prescott
A hand injury has kept Dak Prescott, Dallas Cowboys’ quarterback, off the field for the fourth consecutive week. However, a new update about his practice status suggests that he is getting closer.
Ian Rapoport, an NFL insider, says that Dak will be working to the side during practice this week. Although he won’t be participating in reps, he will still be present at practice as he has been since his recovery from surgery last month.
According to the team, Dak is still unable to grip the ball well enough for him throw at velocity. Dak isn’t yet ready to return to full practice with the team.
Cooper Rush will take over as Cowboys’ starter against the Los Angeles Rams in Week 5. He is 3-0 this season, and hasn’t lost a Cowboys start since last year.
However, Cooper Rush may lead the Cowboys to victory over the Rams. The team has made it clear that Rush will not play any games until Dak Prescott is able to.
Dak is worth an average of $35 million annually to the Cowboys. It makes sense that they would like him to be on the field more often.
Nevertheless, Rush’s win streak will make it easier for Cowboys to “exercise a lot of caution” with their star quarterback.
In Week 6, will we see Dak Prescott return to the field?
