Cowboys QB Duck Prescott (thumb) Eyes Week Seven returns vs. Lions


Philadelphia – Dallas Cowboys Quarterback Duck Prescott He sets his eyes on a comeback from a broken right thumb next week against a visit to the Detroit Lions.

“That’s my plan,” Prescott said as he walked to the team bus after the Cowboys lost 26-17 to the Philadelphia Eagles Sunday night. “Obviously, the document has been looked at, but, yeah, that’s kind of my plan.”

Prescott has missed the past five games after picking up an injury in Dallas’s season-opening loss to the visiting Tampa Bay Buccaneers. He underwent surgery on September 12 and was looking at a four to six week recovery timeline. Last week saw him throwing passes and taking shots for the first time, and he was listed as a limited participant in practice on Thursday. While Prescott was dubious over the match with the Eagles, Cowboys coach Mike McCarthy wanted to go through a full week of training before returning.

“I plan to go into this week and try to get a full week of training,” Prescott said.

McCarthy and MVP Will McClay watched Prescott’s throwing session.

Prescott had duct tape on his thumb, “just for comfort, and it all helps.”

“I’ve done a lot over the past couple of days, and it’s been just as planned,” Prescott said. “I felt as good as I did [Saturday]. So, yes, just on the right track. “

Cooper Rush He had won four straight games in Prescott’s absence and entered Sunday unchallenged, but Philadelphia hit it three times, including twice in the first half with the Eagles leading 20-0. Rush finished 181 yards on 18 of 38 passes with one touchdown and helped the Cowboys cut the lead to 20-17 early in the fourth quarter.

Prescott was extravagant in his praise of Rush and the team.

“I mean, I had no doubts that the team wouldn’t do what it just did,” Prescott said. “You obviously know me, [I’m] Very optimistic. I have a lot of pride in this team, get to know the guys on this team, the defense, and see what Cooper is capable of. So, yeah, I was obviously disappointed that I couldn’t be with the guys for the past five weeks, I guess. But excited to move forward and very happy with the position we are in, we can roll.”

As Cowboys Pro Bowl right keeper Zach Martin He said, “When you get the midfielder in the beginning [it’s great]. But Coop, I can’t say enough about what he’s done for us this year. We talked about it after that first game that we have to correct the ship in the process [No.] 4 out. I think Cope answered the bell and did just that. He did a great job. But obviously, when Duck is ready to go, he’ll be ready to go.”

The Cowboys didn’t top 25 points in their five Rush starts. The third place offense was an ongoing struggle against the Eagles (4 out of 10). The Cowboys managed to win with a spin-free offense, strong running game and defense that allowed no more than 19 points in their first five games.

“We’re ready to take back 4,” Dallas ran back Ezekiel Elliot He said. “As long as he’s healthy and ready to go, it would be good to get him back.”

How good is the offense in Prescott’s comeback?

“The sky is the limit”, a large-scale receiver of the cowboy sir lamb He said. “The insult is so good, everyone knows it. When we bring it back, we’ll show it to everyone.”

Although he hoped to return early, Prescott said he was not discouraged.

“I had plans; [the] Prescott said, “Bone didn’t have the same plan. So that was pushed back, but that was how I got excited. It wasn’t that different from what the doctor’s plans and the coaches’ plans were. Like I said, the plan now is to go next week, and let’s see if I can do that.”
