Cowboys QB Expected To Miss Multiple Weeks

The Dallas Cowboys got off to a horror start in the 2022 NFL campaign, as they were thoroughly beaten by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, all while watching all three of their division opponents kick off the year with victories. The bad news doesn't end there for the Cowboys, as Dak Prescott injured his thumb during the game, and while the exact timeframe isn't clear yet, it appears that No. 4 will be on the sidelines for a few weeks, minimum.

This couldn't come at a worse time for Dallas, as they have Cincinnati a week from now, and given the strength of the Philadelphia Eagles especially in the division, an 0-2 start with Prescott potentially missing more weeks would be worst case scenario in Big D. Cooper Rush will now take over as the starting QB, and with all the injuries surrounding the Cowboys right now, this season may get off to a very rough start indeed.

When healthy, Dallas are good enough to compete for a playoff spot, but if Prescott is out for 4-6 weeks after his thumb surgery, there's a chance this season could be over, and with the defending AFC Champs on board next, the Cowboys are going to need a major upset to keep their hopes alive early in the 2022 NFL season.
