The Dallas Cowboys head into Week 16’s game against the Philadelphia Eagles with star quarterback Dak Prescott banged up due to a shoulder injury to his throwing arm.

That hasn’t stopped Cowboys owner Jerry Jones from expressing the utmost optimism that Prescott will be “in top form.”

Jones has a penchant for expressing optimism about pretty much everything having to do with the Cowboys. In this case, it’s possible that the owner is engaged in some wishful thinking.

It’s an injury that head coach Jason Garrett said has made it “hard for him to function right now.”

“Everything seems to be OK,” Garrett said, via David Moore of the Dallas Morning News. “He just banged it up and it’s hard for him to function right now, so we don’t anticipate him throwing much in practice today.”

Here’s a look at how Prescott was injured.

The Cowboys need to win in the worst way. If the Eagles were to beat them on Sunday, then they’d have the division lead heading into Week 17. With that in mind, it’s hardly surprising that Jones is expecting his quarterback to be up for the challenge.
