But the Cowboys owner didn't appear concerned and believes the team is making use of Prescott's athleticism while offering a comparison.
"I think we have a dimension in Dak with him being able to run the ball, you saw what Cam Newton does with that," Jones said, via Jon Machota of the Dallas Morning News. "[Panthers offensive coordinator] Norv Turner, who can be as traditional a playcaller as you can ever imagine, was doing a great job of using Cam.
"We've got a quarterback that is somewhere between [Jared Goff] and Cam Newton. He can do some of what both of those guys do. You're going to see it."
With 658 yards rushing and 12 touchdowns on his short career, Prescott has shown the ability to put pressure on a defense as a runner. But the signal-caller had a tough go in that department in Week 1, totaling 19 yards on five attempts and was sacked six times.
"They did get separation," Jones said. "We just didn't get the ball to them."
The team owner's backing of Prescott and wide receivers comes a day after head coach Jason Garrett gave a vote of confidence to offensive coordinator Scott Linehan.
