Cowboys News: Dak's green light, penalty problems return, Elliott joins elite club

Expect Cowboys Nation to move on from Week 6 in record time. Not because the loss to Philadelphia wasn’t infuriating,

 but because there’s a quarterback decision to obsess about.

 News and Notes kicks off with the latest on Dak Prescott’s expected medical clearance,

why Stephen Jones isn’t yet ready to commit to plugging him back in the starting lineup,

 and what Prescott himself has to say about his status. And if this closes the book on Cooper Rush,

what does this chapter of his story actually say about him and what he did for the team?

Elsewhere, there is a divisional loss to dissect: who Micah Parsons says is to blame for coming up short,

 what happened to Dalton Schultz and what happens next now that Jake Ferguson is coming on strong,

and what the Dallas coordinators had to say about the team’s 10 penalties. Ezekiel Elliott joins a super-exclusive club,

The official green light was expected to come either Monday or Tuesday,

paving the way for Prescott to take on a “full throwing load” at practice.

Then, maybe, the start against Detroit. “You’ve got to get the timing,” explained Coach McCarthy.

 “I think when you look at players that return to play, they’re cleared medically to play but if you don’t totally feel the timing’s quite there, they may need another week.”
