Injuries are an inevitability in the NFL – even to the highly paid, highly protected superstars under center. And 2022's first in-season quarterback switch will occur Sunday in Dallas, the Cowboys' pivot to Cooper Rush necessitated by Dak Prescott's surgery for a broken thumb on his throwing hand.

Owner Jerry Jones served up unexpectedly optimistic news Tuesday, announcing the Cowboys won't place Prescott on injured reserve given their belief he won't be out for more than four games. Still, could be sufficient time for a team that lost its opener to let this campaign get away if Rush and Co. can't stop the bleeding.
