Dallas Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott went down with a thumb injury back in Week 1 of the NFL season. It immediately thrust the franchise into panic mode, although the steady play of backup Cooper Rush and an elite performance from the defense rallied this squad to a 4-1 record.

Prescott returned to the practice field in Dallas this week, and all eyes and ears have been on the early status of his return. Head coach Mike McCarthy provided a promising review of this process on Friday morning.

McCarthy spoke with 105.3 The FAN in Dallas, explaining that Friday would be viewed as a recovery day for the franchise gunslinger. Prescott actually hit the ground running as McCarthy explained he "probably did a little more than we anticipated [Thursday]." Overall, Prescott is "on schedule" and he's "getting better."

This should be music to the ears of Cowboys fans everywhere. There's no expectation that Prescott will be ready in time for Week 6 against the Philadelphia Eagles, but owner Jerry Jones alluded to being "optimistic" the veteran QB can return for Week 7 against the Detroit Lions.

For now, Rush and his Cowboys are considered 6.5-point road underdogs per NFL odds on FanDuel Sportsbook.
