Cowboys HC Mike McCarthy says doctors have cleared QB Dak Prescott (thumb) to play, according to NFL Network's Jane Slater. The team plans for Prescott to throw 40-50 passes at Thursday's practice, and the QB appears on track to return Sunday against the Lions.

Cowboys rookie TE Jake Ferguson caught 4 of 6 targets for 40 yards and the team's lone passing TD in Sunday night's loss to the Eagles. He checked in 3rd in targets, with TE Peyton Hendershot drawing another 5 and TE Sean McKeon 1 as well. WR CeeDee Lamb led Dallas with 10 targets, catching 5 for 68 yards. WR Michael Gallup ranked 2nd, putting up a 2-18 receiving line on his 7 looks. QB Cooper Rush attempted a season-high 38 passes but completed only 18 (47.4%) for 181 yards and 1 TD. He also threw 3 INTs.

Cowboys QB Dak Prescott (thumb) is inactive for tonight’s game vs. the Eagles. NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport said this morning that Prescott “still must improve to be ready to practice" this coming Wednesday. It sounds like he’s not a lock to be ready for Week 7. QB Cooper Rush gets another start tonight.

Though he's listed as questionable for the Sunday night game against the Eagles, Cowboys QB Dak Prescott (thumb) won't play, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. He adds that the QB "still must improve to be ready to practice" Wednesday. We'll continue to track Prescott's progress. Cooper Rush gets his 5th straight start.

The Cowboys list QB Dak Prescott (thumb) as questionable for Sunday night’s game vs. the Eagles. He got in limited practices on Thursday and Friday. We’re still expecting QB Cooper Rush to get the start this weekend, but we’ll continue to keep an eye on the situation.

Cowboys HC Mike McCarthy said Wednesday that he's preparing for QB Cooper Rush to start Sunday night's game vs. the Eagles. QB Dak Prescott (thumb) is expected to throw off to the side of Wednesday's practice but is still in the “medical, rehab phase," McCarthy said. We'll see if Prescott can make it back for Week 7.

Cowboys QB Dak Prescott (thumb) is out for Sunday’s game vs. the Rams. He remained sidelined in practice all week, reportedly still having trouble gripping the football. We’ll see if Prescott can make it back for Week 6, which always seemed like the best-case scenario. QB Cooper Rush gets another start on Sunday.

Cowboys owner Jerry Jones admitted Tuesday that QB Dak Prescott (thumb) still can't grip the football well enough to play. That sure doesn't sound like a guy who will be ready to start an NFL game on Sunday. Look for QB Cooper Rush to be under center again vs. the Rams. We'll see if Prescott can make it back for Week 6

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that Cowboys QB Dak Prescott is "eyeing" next week's game against the Rams for a "possible" return from his thumb injury. We'll certainly be tracking the QB's status throughout the week. The combo of surgery on his throwing thumb and a good defense on the other side of that matchup would have us wary of playing Prescott in fantasy football lineups right away.

Cowboys WR CeeDee Lamb tallied 8 grabs for 87 yards and 1 score in a Week 3 win over the Giants. His 12 targets easily led the team and represented a 38.7% share from Cooper Rush. He dropped an easy downfield ball before halftime, but fantasy owners can’t really complain about his production. The young WR has now tallied lines of 6-112 (2021), 7-75 and 8-87-1 in 3 starts with Rush. Dak Prescott (thumb) might only be a couple of weeks away from returning, and Lamb will clearly remain a fantasy starter in the meantime. Next up is a divisional tilt with Washington.

Cowboys QB Dak Prescott told ESPN's Lisa Salters that he expects to be back from his thumb injury in a couple of weeks. He intimated that could be as soon as Week 4 against Washington. We'd bet on Week 5 actually being the earliest. Prescott did get stitches removed from the injured hand Monday, though. ESPN's Todd Archer reports that the QB's grip strength will play a big part in determining when he can get back into the lineup. We'll keep watching Prescott's progress.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports that Cowboys QB Dak Prescott had successful surgery Monday to "stabilize" his fractured right thumb. He's reportedly eyeing a return on either Oct. 30 vs. the Bears or Nov. 13 vs. the Packers. Dallas' bye falls in between those 2 games, which could factor into Prescott's return. We'll keep an eye on his status as the time draws nearer. For now, it's Cooper Rush taking over.

Cowboys QB Dak Prescott is expected to miss "more than a month" with the right thumb fracture he suffered in Sunday night's loss to the Bucs, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Prescott will have surgery on Monday. The team expects to have a firmer timetable for his return after the surgery. QB Cooper Rush is the next man up for the Cowboys. He went 7 of 13 for 64 yards in relief of Prescott on Sunday night and posted a 325-2-1 passing line in his lone full game last year. We'll see if Dallas makes an addition at QB.

Cowboys owner Jerry Jones says QB Dak Prescott needs surgery on his right thumb and will be out "a few weeks," according to Charean Williams of Pro Football Talk. Prescott suffered the injury late in Sunday night's loss to the Buccaneers. It's obviously a huge loss for the Dallas offense, especially high profile fantasy pass-catchers WR CeeDee Lamb and TE Dalton Schultz. Cooper Rush is the backup, but we wouldn't be surprised to see Dallas try to make a move for another QB.

Cowboys QB Dak Prescott left in the 4th quarter of Sunday night's game against the Buccaneers after taking 2 shots to his right hand. After getting the had checked on the sideline, he jogged to the locker room for further testing. We'll see about the extent of the issue. Cooper Rush came on in relief.

Cowboys HC Mike McCarthy said Monday that he expects QB Dak Prescott (calf) to be a "full go" for Thursday's practice, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. That should certainly put Prescott on track to face the Broncos -- now down top pass rusher Von Miller -- on Sunday.

Cowboys QB Dak Prescott (calf) is inactive for tonight’s game vs. the Vikings. He was seemingly close to playing, but Dallas is playing it safe here. We’re expecting Prescott back next week. QB Cooper Rush makes his 1st career start tonight -- a clear downgrade for Cowboys pass catchers.

Both ESPN and NFL Network report that Dak Prescott plans to work out before Sunday night's game against the Vikings to determine whether he can play. Adam Schefter adds, though, that "some within the organization believe" Cooper Rush will start the game after taking team reps in practice this week. Barring some further update ahead of the early games, waiting for Prescott will be a risky move for your fantasy football lineups today.

The Dallas Morning News' Michael Gehlken tweets, "It would surprise many close to situation if Cowboys QB Dak Prescott (calf) starts Sunday vs. Vikings." On top of his calf issue, Prescott left the team on Friday following the death of his grandmother. He's back with the team now and traveled to Minnesota. But Gehlken notes that backup QB Cooper Rush saw the "most meaningful reps" of the practice week. At this point, we're leaning toward Prescott missing Sunday night's game. But we'll see if we get a more concrete update on Sunday morning.

Cowboys QB Dak Prescott reportedly said he expected a decision following Saturday's practice on whether he'll start Sunday night against the Vikings. ESPN's Ed Werder, however, says 2 sources have called it a game-time decision. He quoted one as saying, "We are literally going to take it into tomorrow (night)." If it's truly a game-time decision for Sunday night, that would take the call beyond when most other QBs are starting their games. Waiting on Prescott will bring some risk this week.
