When Dak Prescott suffered a thumb injury in Week 1, the outlook wasn’t good. The Cowboys were once again facing time without their star quarterback, and only a few thought Cooper Rush would keep them afloat.
But after four consecutive wins, many are already wondering whether Rush should continue to lead the offense even when Prescott is healthy. No one would have ever considered it, but the results are very impressive.
Cowboys owner Jerry Jones, like everyone in Dallas, is happy to see Rush doing so well when the team needed him the most. However, he made it clear that Prescott’s job is not in danger.
Jerry Jones says Dak Prescott will remain Cowboys QB1
“Dak is the No. 1 quarterback, Dak is our guy,” Jones said, via the Star-Telegram. “But isn’t it great that somebody came in and played well enough so that we can ask that question? That’s my point.
“Dak is going to get better this week. I have no idea whether he’ll line up against Philadelphia, but he’ll get better. And what’s inspirational here is that we’ve got a lot of good players here that didn’t play today that we’ve got help on the way with. Cooper Rush and the Dak Prescott syndrome, so to speak, is a fingerprint of this team.”
