Dak Prescott suffered a thumb injury in the Dallas Cowboys’ loss to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Sunday and is expected to be out for multiple weeks.
This is horrible news for a team that came into this season with high expectations. Now the team will be tasked to try and stay afloat until Dak can get healed.
It will be the second time in his career that Prescott will miss significant time as he suffered a gruesome ankle injury during the 2020 season.
Cooper Rush is next in line to start, but fans do not want him behind center.
Many Cowboys fans took to Twitter and called on Jerry Jones to sign either Cam Newton or Colin Kaepernick.
After the 19-3 loss, Prescott addressed reporters with a cast on his right hand.
“Yeah, it’s very disappointing, but injuries happen. Can’t necessarily control it. Just unfortunate. I’m obviously going to miss some time, not be there for my team. That’s what hurts more than anything, especially after the start that we just put out there,” Prescott said, via Pro Football Talk.
“I wanted to be able to respond and not necessarily having that opportunity for several weeks. Yeah, it’s unfortunate, but I’ll do what I’ve always done anytime adversity comes. Take it on head first, and I’ll give my best, and I’m sure I’ll come out of this better.”
