Cowboys QB Dak Prescott does work with training ball

Injured Dallas Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott was back at practice Thursday … gripping and throwing a training ball.

Prescott did not throw a football or take any snaps. But his presence at practice, 10 days removed from surgery on his right thumb, comes a day after owner Jerry Jones said Prescott could be back at full practice in two weeks.

That projection is well ahead of initial estimates of Prescott’s return in four-to-six weeks from a broken thumb on his throwing hand.

However, an orthopedic surgeon told The Dallas Morning News that Jones’ projection was “realistic.”

“It would be pushing it a bit, but I think it’s definitely realistic,” Dr. David Hay told the News. “The fracture is outside the motion part of the joint and inside the bone of the thumb.”

Hay, who isn’t a part of Prescott’s medical team, specializes in hand surgery at Cedars-Sinai Kerlan Jobe Institute in Los Angeles.

Prescott was injured in the season opener against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, and backup Cooper Rush was at the helm for a win last week over the Cincinnati Bengals. The Cowboys are 1-1.

Rush will be under center again this week against the New York Giants (2-0) in Week 3.
