"Certainly the way he and Showers played," Jones explained early this week, "I wouldn't consider a backup quarterback situation at all. I wouldn't want to, by any way, deter the progress and the excitement that he can bring to the building of the team and the future."
The NFL is a week-to-week league. Prescott's arrow couldn't be higher this week. As long as he doesn't faceplant in the next two weeks, Jones will have no incentive to purchase premium insurance at the position.
