Hours after he suffered a serious hand injury against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers,

Dak Prescott underwent successful surgery for a fracture in his right thumb.

According to ESPN's Ed Vedder, the Cowboys quarterback needed a plate and screw to "repair and stabilize" the fracture on his throwing arm.

He also said that the team did not place Prescott on injured reserve to allow for "flexibility" when returning to practice.

Dak Prescott needed a plate and screw to repair

and immobilize the fracture near the right thumb.

One of the reasons he is not being placed on the IR is to allow for flexibility so that he can eventually take practice reps as he gets closer to a potential return to play.

Most fans don't believe Prescott will be back within four weeks.

"4 weeks... yeah right," said one fan.

Another fan said, "4 weeks isn't enough to heal a hand injury. It's a Jerry Jones trick...".

However, at least one fan thinks that the front office is actually making a smart decision by allowing the Prescott Rooms to pick up reps when they're ready.

"Can't believe I'm saying this but it's a real smart move by FO...

Don't throw it at the wolves when he comes back....." said the fan.

What do you think of Dallas' decision on Prescott?
