Dak Prescott says he’s starting Sunday

Mike Florio and Chris Simms rip through Week 7 storylines, the 49ers hoping to avenge their Super bowl LIV loss to the Chiefs, to the Giants being underdogs against the Jags and more.

Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott said he’ll be back in the lineup for Sunday’s game against the Lions.

The Cowboys have resisted making any official announcements about Prescott making his return after missing five games with a right thumb injury, but he’s medically cleared and practicing without limitations so there isn’t much suspense about their plans.

Prescott eliminated a little more of it on Thursday. Prescott was asked during a press conference if he is starting on Sunday and he said “I am” in response. He added “I think” after a brief pause, but that aside would seem to be about avoiding any huffiness about going public with the plan for the weekend than actual doubt about where he’ll be this weekend.

The Cowboys won four straight with Cooper Rush at quarterback before falling to the Eagles last Sunday. They’ll be hoping Prescott’s return sparks another winning streak.
