The Dallas Cowboys' season-opener went from bad to worse Sunday night.
Following their 19-3 drubbing at the hands of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Cowboys owner and General Manager Jerry Jones told reporters postgame that starting quarterback Dak Prescott will need surgery to repair his thumb on his throwing hand; costing him several weeks of the 2022 season.
Prescott was just 14/29 on the day for 134 yards and an interception before Prescott's thumb collided with Tampa Bay's Shaq Barrett.
Backup quarterback Cooper Rush finished the game; going 7/13 for 64 yards in Prescott's absence.
Week 2 Odds for Bengals vs. Cowboys Taken Off the Board with Prescott Injury
After opening as 1.5-point favorites in Week 2 against the 0-1 Cincinnati Bengals at FanDuel Sportsbook, following the Prescott injury, the line was immediately taken off the board both at FanDuel, as well as nearly every consensus book around the country.
There have not been any updated odds posted at this time. The matchup vs. Cincinnati was set to be the featured matchup of the afternoon on CBS with Jim Nantz and Tony Romo on the call.
After opening the offseason as the consensus favorites to win the NFC East, the Cowboys were overtaken by the Philadelphia Eagles for the shortest odds to win the division a few weeks left before the season opener. With Prescott out several weeks, Dallas could see themselves fall sizably further down the board.
