Dak Prescott is planning on making his return to the field next weekend.

The Cowboys, 2-1 on the year, are set to host Washington on Sunday afternoon. Cooper Rush will start at quarterback for Dallas in Week 4.

However, Prescott could be back for Week 5, when the Cowboys take on the Rams.

"Cowboys’ QB Dak Prescott, who had the stitches removed from his surgically repaired thumb and began throwing a football this past week, is eyeing next Sunday's game against the Rams for a possible return, per sources," Adam Schefter reports.

The Cowboys have played well in Prescott's absence, though they surely can't wait for his return to the field.

Not everyone is convinced he should return this soon, though.

"Nope, don’t come back until the Philly game…we need a 100% healthy Dak," one fan wrote.

"The man wants to return against AD99 … I would’ve waited one more week lol," another fan joked. 

"Ugh, this is obviously rushed & im gonna say I’ll take 3-3 with Dak at 100% over compromised Dak v Rams/Eagles defenses," another fan added.
