Jerry Jones says Cowboys won't put Dak Prescott on IR, could return within 4 weeks

Sep 13, 2022

Dallas Cowboys owner and de facto general manager Jerry Jones served up a heaping plate of Dak Prescott optimism for breakfast on Tuesday morning.

On his weekly radio hit on 105.3 The Fan, Jones said that the Cowboys won't put Prescott on injured reserve while his surgically repaired thumb heals up, because the team believes he could return within the next four games.

"I think what we’re going to do here is we won’t be putting him on IR, which means we want him to be consideration for playing within the next 4 games," Jones said via Jori Epstein. "We will NOT put him on IR."

Prescott's injury, which he sustained during the Cowboys 19-3 loss to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, was reportedly given a 6-8 week timeline, which would fit nicely into the IR's four-game minimum. But Jones is throwing all that out the window, because he believes Prescott can return much quicker.
