The Dallas Cowboys is preparing for Cooper Rush to once again man the starting quarterback role against the Eagles in Week 6, Cowboys coach Mike McCarthy told reporters Wednesday.
Prescott spent Wednesday’s practice with the Cowboys’ rehab group and participated in some light throwing at the end of the session, marking the quarterback’s first round of passes to receivers since suffering his thumb injury in Week 1.
The Cowboys listed Prescott as a DNP, but the quarterback gave a positive review of his throwing session afterward.
“Solid. Ask the receivers,” Prescott said, via the Dallas Morning News’ Calvin Watkins, before being told his receivers said his passes had some pop on them. “I always got some pop on my balls. I’m not going to throw if I ain’t got pop on my balls.”
