Dak Prescott medically cleared, throwing with starters at Cowboys practice ahead of Lions game

Oct 20, 2022

It's official. Dak Prescott has been cleared from his broken thumb and is throwing with starters at Dallas Cowboys practice.

Head coach Mike McCarthy announced Wednesday that Prescott “has been cleared medically to be a full participant” ahead of Sunday's home game against the Detroit Lions. The news confirms anticipation from the team earlier this week that Prescott would be cleared.

The Cowboys quarterback hasn't played since breaking the thumb on his throwing hand in Week 1 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. He had surgery to repair the fracture on Sept. 12.

Per McCarthy, Prescott was slated to participate in a mock game leading the starting offense on Wednesday and would then "probably throw somewhere between 40 and 50 balls” in a separate workout.
