Jerry Jones expects Dak Prescott to be in ‘top form’ despite shoulder injury
Dak Prescott is dealing with a shoulder injury that has prevented him from throwing in practice this week, but Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones is not concerned about it.
Jones said on 105.3 The Fan Thursday that he expects Prescott to be in “top form” when the Cowboys take on the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday.
Jerry Jones on @1053thefan on Dak Prescott’s injured shoulder: “I’m totally convinced he’ll be in top form. We need him in top form and he will be in top form.”

Not long after Jones made those remarks, Cowboys head coach Jason Garrett told the media that Prescott is making progress but is unlikely to throw again on Thursday.
#Cowboys HC Jason Garrett says Dak Prescott shoulder injury is progressing but probably won’t throw very much today, if at all. LT Tyron Smith’s eye has improved. He can see out of it and expected to practice with a shield.

Prescott has an AC joint sprain in his throwing shoulder, which typically requires rest for a quarterback. However, both the Cowboys and Eagles are 7-7, and Sunday’s game in Philly could ultimate decide who wins the NFC East. It would be a shock if Prescott didn’t suit up given the circumstances, and Jones clearly expects him to. The fact that the quarterback was even limited in practice on Wednesday was very noteworthy for another reason, but he will likely play.
