Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones lauds Cooper Rush after he leads team to third win in row

Cooper Rush does not know if Sunday's 25-10 win against the Washington Commanders was his final start as the Dallas Cowboys' quarterback. Neither does Jerry Jones.

All they know is that if it is, Rush has left the Cowboys in a better spot than when he took over for an injured Dak Prescott three weeks ago.

"I can't say enough about his play," owner and general manager Jerry Jones said after the Cowboys' third straight victory.

"What it has possibly done for this team this season to give us a chance to sit here after these last three ball games and maybe have the opportunity we've got for the rest of the year. It's amazing. It's far more than what I would've expected."

Prescott is eyeing a return next week against the Los Angeles Rams, sources told ESPN's Adam Schefter, while the Cowboys (3-1) want to make sure that Prescott is as close to 100% healthy as possible and could push back his return until Week 6 against the division-rival Philadelphia Eagles.

After the win over Washington, Jones said, "I can't give you anything there medically" about the status of Prescott, who had surgery Sept. 12

Prescott had the stitch removed from his right thumb on Monday, and coach Mike McCarthy said during the week the quarterback still had some swelling in the thumb that needed to subside before he could step up his throwing.

"I really don't know that I'd call that throwing what he's doing, but he's certainly got movement," Jones said. "I wouldn't know if he's throwing at a level that you could say the grip and everything effectively is a good throw, a good, normal passing throw."
