The Dallas Cowboys will be without their starting quarterback after having thumb surgery.
When Dak Prescott exited Sunday night’s game there was concern that he would miss some time. With Prescott set to undergo surgery on his right thumb, the expectation is that the Cowboys signal caller will be out 6-8 weeks.
The injury to Dak Prescott derails the start to an already rocky beginning to this season. Dallas’ offense was far from prolific with Prescott and will now have to turn to Cooper Rush with their backs against the wall. The Cowboys can look to bolster their quarterback situation, but with Prescott being able to return this season it is doubtful they acquire anyone of note.
The season is already off the rails in Dallas, a lackluster offensive outing in a 19-3 loss combined with losing Prescott does not bode well for Mike McCarthy. McCarthy was already able to secure this job under rather questionable tactics could find him in the crosshairs of Jerry Jones if the season is indeed lost.
