Dallas Week: Cowboys announce starting QB ahead of primetime matchup vs. Eagles
It’ll be the Cooper Rush show in Dallas for at least another week.
Although Dak Prescott tried to rush himself back for the Week 6 matchup, Cowboys HC Mike McCarthy announced today that Dallas is preparing for Cooper Rush to start against the Eagles on Sunday night.

Prescott underwent surgery to repair his fractured right thumb on September 12, with a reported recovery time of four to six weeks.
Rush has been solid for the Cowboys in his absence, leading his team to four straight victories, including wins over the Rams and Bengals. Dallas has had to alter their approach with Rush under center, leaning heavily on the defense while simplifying the gameplan for their undrafted quarterback.
During his undefeated streak, Rush has thrown for 775 yards on 62% completion, 4 TDs and 0 INTs.
With first place in the division up for grabs, Jalen Hurts will look for his first career win against Dallas as the Eagles try to move to 6-0 heading into the bye week.
