Cowboys QB Dak Prescott ‘full go’ for Sunday’s game vs. Lions

After missing the last five games, Dallas Cowboys Pro Bowl quarterback Dak Prescott will make his long-awaited return.

Prescott voiced as much to the media on Thursday, stating that he has no limitations and will be a full go for Sunday’s game against the Detroit Lions.

“I did everything. I wasn’t limited by any means,” Prescott said via ESPN. “There wasn’t a pitch count. I think I threw about 140 balls, something like that. I just made that up, but there was no pitch count, I was full go.”

The Cowboys have handled the situation with much precaution, given the sensitivity of the injury. The team elected to keep him off the field in last week’s game against the Philadelphia Eagles despite Prescott airing that he felt he could have played.

Head coach Mike McCarthy voiced he wanted to see Prescott go through a week of practice first before declaring that his star quarterback will take the field. The 29-year-old has gone through all the necessary rehab work to get himself in the position to return after five weeks.

The Cowboys are hoping that Prescott can immediately step in and make a significant impact with his play. Backup Cooper Rush performed admirably in his absence, leading the team to four straight wins before last Sunday’s loss to the Eagles.

Prescott will have full control of the offense that holds a favorable matchup against the Lions, who rank last giving up 32.0 points per contest and yards allowed per game (428.6).
