Cowboys QB To Start Throwing, But Won't Return In Week 6

The Dallas Cowboys have shocked the world this year, going 4-0 with backup QB Cooper Rush at the helm, but at this point, it's only a matter of time until their starter Dak Prescott returns to the team from the wrist injury suffered in Week 1. On that note, today, for the first time since that day, Prescott is going to begin throwing again, as he has been unable to grip the ball with any strength in recent times, which is a very positive sign going forward for his return. 

Mike McCarthy has announced today however that Rush, the QB with a perfect 5-0 record as Cowboys starter will be going again in Week 6 against the Philadelphia Eagles, who hold a perfect 5-0 record to begin the year, so something has to give. When Prescott first went down, Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said it would be great if Rush played so well that there would be a QB competition, and if the team can take out the division rival and undefeated Eagles, there's a good chance that the then 6-0 Rush would be the fans favourite to stay on as the starter.

That problem won't arise for at least another week however, as the Cowboys are preparing for Rush to go again in Week 6, but given the success he's had, this creates a great problem going forward for the 4-1 Dallas Cowboys.
