Dallas Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott is scheduled for surgery on his right thumb Monday after suffering an injury in Sunday night’s 19-3 loss to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in the season opener. According to sources, he is expected to be out for six to eight weeks and is likely to be on the injured reserve list due to the injury.
Prescott injured himself in the fourth quarter when he caught fullback Shaq Barrett’s hand while throwing a pass. Prescott is scheduled to meet with the Cowboys’ hand specialist on Monday, and multiple sources say he plans to place pins and plates in the area to stabilize the joint.
Prescott thought he had pinched his finger at first, but he didn’t think it was serious. However, he went to the changing room for an X-ray, which showed a broken bone.
It’s officially the first week of the NFL season as the Buccaneers play tonight.

They failed to muster a significant offensive threat when the Cowboys lost 19-3 to the Buccaneers in Tampa Bay in front of his packed house of 93,797 fans. The offensive line performed decently given the circumstances, but consistency and penalties were an issue.
On their part, the receiving corps struggled to create space, and Dak Prescott was never sharp, but made only 14 of 29 attempts for 134 yards and a passer rating of 47.2. rice field. His new No. 1 wideout, CeeDee Lamb, made him a target 11 times, but he only passed twice and he went for 29 yards.
