Dak Prescott had stitches removed from his surgically repaired right thumb on Monday but won't start throwing immediately due to swelling.

"He still has some swelling that he has to deal with," Mike McCarthy said. "Once he gets past the swelling and the strengthening stage, then he'll get to the point where he'll be able to throw. He'll be dealing with more rehab this week and hopefully we'll get the swelling and the strength where it needs to be. But I do not have a timeline on when he'll start throwing."

There had been some speculation that Prescott could return for the Dallas Cowboys in Week 4, but that appears to be a long shot at this point.
