Dak Prescott will be under center when the Dallas Cowboys kick off the 2021-22 regular season against the defending Super Bowl champion Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Thursday, September 9, according to team owner Jerry Jones.
Jones told reporters on Sunday that the star quarterback will be “good to go” for the season opener at Raymond James Stadium.
“He really turned it loose and was none the worse for it,” Jones added.
Cowboys insider Rob Phillips shared the news on social media.

Prescott was held out of the preseason and limited his reps in practice. Earlier this month, there was some cause for concern when Prescott underwent an MRI on his injured shoulder, but now he appears just fine. Dallas has been without Prescott since his gruesome ankle injury in Week 5 of last year.
Kickoff between Dallas and the Buccaneers at Raymond James Stadium is set for 8:20 p.m. ET on NBC.
