Jerry Jones speaks about Dak Prescott’s injury

    Owner was a guest on 105.3 “The Fan” the other day and spoke more about 's thumb .

    It seems that his grip isn't doing too well at the moment, which is going to stop him from playing in the upcoming game this week against the . You know what that means, right? RUSH HOUR!

    Cooper Rush will be taking the field this week for the Cowboys again and try to work on getting to 5-0 as a starter. But enough about the courageous backup, let's focus more on Dak.

    A couple of weeks ago Dak Prescott was seen practicing with other team members, only a week and a half after his injury. The Cowboys staff figured it would be a good idea for him to get out there and work on his passing and grips. It seems though that the idea to get him playing quicker will be delayed due to this.

    In my Dak Prescott Injury Update, which I posted a while back, I stated how they shouldn't be putting much pressure on his thumb for it may cause more stress. I'm not sure if this is the main reason he won't be playing, but I'm sure it didn't help. Back to good ol' Jerry Jones.

    Jerry Jones was not so sure about Dak's return anytime soon. Week 6 was the projected game for Dak to return to the field, yet still, no glory.

    Another example is that during last week's game against the , Dak was asked by a few reporters about his hand and if it was healing properly. Dak responded by stating that it was healing but not fast. He figures that over the past few weeks he's been overworking it with practices.

    A lot of trust was put on the rehab team and Jerry Jones to get Dak back on the field sooner rather than later. I'm sure Dak wants to get back out there as quickly as he can, but if even he is saying it's not fully healed, it must be the truth.

    I have said this once and I'll say it again, Dak needs REST!

    It is ok if he doesn't practice for a while, a player like him doesn't simply lose talent. Let the dude lie down and have his thumb generate back to full strength.

    So, I'm sure many fans are now wondering two things:

    1. When will Dak return and,
    2. Will Prescott still be the starter when he comes back?

    For one, I still see Prescott out for another two weeks. I don't care what anyone says, Dak has a hurt thumb that's critical to throwing, he needs more rest.

    For the other question, maybe it's time for the Dallas Cowboys to start trusting Cooper Rush. For now, Dak's thumb doesn't seem like it's healing super fast. I knew that the Cowboys staff hyped up his early return too much during these past few weeks even though they knew it would take longer.

    I predict that he will be out for another two weeks and then he should be back to full strength. Even going back to what Jerry Jones said, it's safe to say the staff knew they made a mistake by stating that he could make a return as early as week 4.
