Jerry Jones: Prescott could return as early as Week 4

Cowboys owner and General Manager Jerry Jones thinks Dak Prescott may surprise people with how quickly he returns from the injury to his throwing hand according to Michael David Smith of Pro Football Talk.com.

Jones said on 105.3 The Fan that it’s still too soon to say when Prescott will be back on the field, but it’s possible that he’ll miss only one more game and play in Week Four against the Commanders.

“I don’t know that anybody knows [when he’ll be back],” Jones said. “But when he [gets enough strength in his hand], then you’ll probably see some real advancement in his timeline. I don’t know when that is. I do know that with a good airing out last week, everybody recognizes that he’ll be back sooner than later as far as the timeline. It really could be a minimum of two weeks up here in my mind [Washington in Week 4]. Now, that’s very optimistic. But he’s got the kind of repair there that will allow him not to have a lot of fear of re-injuring it. It’s just a question of the grip. But it’s a big question.”

Cooper Rush played well in Prescott's absence Sunday, completing 19-of-31 passes for 235 yards and a touchdown in an upset of the Cincinnati Bengals, so the Cowboys would be wise not to rush their starting QB back to the field.  And Russell Wilson in 2021 should be a cautionary tale-Wilson rushed back from hand surgery and was unable to throw the ball with much accuracy.  We would be shocked to see Dak backi in Week 4 but stranger things have happened.
