Dak Prescott’s return appears to be imminent! According to Mike McCarthy Dak Prescott will attempt to get medically cleared to return tomorrow when they return to Dallas! If Prescott is able to get cleared he will more than likely start in next Sunday’s matchup against the Detroit Lions.
Cooper Rush filled in valiantly in Prescott’s absence, however the offense struggled to score points, leaning heavily on the star studded defense to carry the team to victory. During his 5 starts Cooper Rush threw for 1020 yards 5 touchdowns and 3 interceptions with a 57.7 completion percentage. While Prescott struggled in the season opener he is 11-6 in his last 17 regular season games with 38 TDs to only 11 interceptions. Prescott is also one of the winningest quarterbacks in the NFL being posting a career 53-33, tied for 5th most wins in the NFL since entering the league.
Prescott was also able to end the 2021 season 4th in passing TDs (37) and 4th in completion percentage (68.8%). With Dak’s return the offense should receive a much needed boost as the Cowboy’s are currently ranked 23rd in scoring and 27th in passing offense. With Dak’s return the Cowboys are poised to cement themselves as a complete team and legit contender going forward.
