Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones confirmed on Sunday that quarterback Dak Prescott is good to go for the season opener against Tampa Bay.
Prescott has not played in the preseason, as he’s been dealing with a shoulder injury, but he’s been back at practice.
“He really turned it loose and was none the worse for it,” Jones said.
While Prescott is good to go for the season opener, there are questions about how rusty he’ll be. After all, he hasn’t played in a regular season game in nearly a year.
ESPN reporter Ed Werder shared what he’s been seeing from Prescott at practice.
“You mentioned the practice, which I watched yesterday. Prescott was pushing the ball about 50 yards down the field in some of the 7-on-7 work,” Werder said on SportsCenter, per 247Sports. “In some of the two-minute offense that Mike McCarthy added to the script, Prescott seemed erratic, as Jourdan Lewis, Trevon Diggs broke up passes, Keanu Neal knocked the ball loose from a receiver to prevent another completion, but Prescott kept loose between reps, throwing with equipment personnel and he did appear to be moving with relative ease. To me, the question with Prescott at this point is not whether he’ll play Week 1, but how well will he be capable of playing in that opener?”
The Cowboys are set to open the season on Thursday, Sept. 9 against the Buccaneers.
Kickoff is set for 8:20 p.m. E.T. on NBC.
