Dak Prescott’s Trouble with Practicing

On Monday, Dak Prescott had stitches removed from his right hand and threw a few soft tosses, but it is clear that he is still not ready to return to practice yet. 

The Cowboys’ practice report shows that Prescott remains out. 

According to Cowboys coach Mike McCarthy, via David Moore on the Dallas Morning News, “He’s been conditioning. He’s been doing that after the first week. He’ll just continue on the path with the cardiovascular. But now that he has the stitches out, the next step is to get the swelling totally out of the joint and the thumb area and start to build his strength so he can grip the football. That’s the next step.” 

Earlier this week, Prescott said that he is unlikely to return for Sunday’s game against the Commanders and is pointing toward the week five game against the Rams. This means that Cooper Rush will most likely start again this week. 

Rush is 3-0 in his career as a starter, joining Roger Staubach, Steve Beuerlein, and Jason Garrett as the only Cowboys quarterbacks to win all three of their first career starts. 

Receiver Michael Gallup has also yet to play this season because of the ACL he tore in a January 2 game against the Cardinals. He recently had a full practice and is steadily making progress. 

Defensive end DeMarcus Lawrence, who had three sacks in Monday night’s game against the Giants, was limited by his foot injury.

Safety Jayron Kearse and tight end Dalton Schultz both have knee injuries, and left guard Connor McGovern has an ankle injury. All three were limited on Wednesday and missed Monday night’s game with their injuries.

Although receiver Simi Fehoko has a shoulder injury and linebacker Luke Gifford has a hamstring injury, they were full participants.

    How the Youth Sports Industry Misleads Parents

    It isn’t uncommon for young athletes to dream big. Any youth devoted to their sport will eagerly tell you their ambitions of playing in the big leagues, mimicking the roar of the crowds as they score that buzzer-beating shot. But in the face of reality, we intuitively know that those childhood dreams rarely come true, and the data backs that up: according to the NCAA, there are 10 million high school athletes in the US compared to just over 400,000 college athletes across all sports. At the professional level, that number is drastically smaller. So why do youth training camps and similar programs in the youth sports industry continue to peddle parental fantasies about their children as future professional athletes?
