Cowboys QB Dak Prescott sounds off on health amid looming return from ankle injury

Dak Prescott, Cowboys

After suffering from an awful ankle injury in October last year and straining his right shoulder last July, Dallas Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott is ready to make his return.

In a press conference held today, Prescott said this about his return:

“I’m ready. I’m definitely ready. I’m excited. I’ve put in a lot of work to get to this point.

“Whether it was months ago just rehabbing the ankle to the last few months, keeping the feet working while letting my arm rest. There’s so much work that I’ve put in. I’m just excited to get out there and be a part of a full game.”

To say that Prescott is an immensely valuable player for the Cowboys is a massive understatement. He was the main driving force behind their offense. Before he suffered his gruesome injury, the quarterback averaged a ridiculous 371.2 passing yards per game. But without him, the Cowboys offense floundered, as Andy Dalton wasn’t able to pilot the offense the same way Prescott did.

Now, the Cowboys are poised to make a huge comeback. Flanking Prescott is sophomore receiver CeeDee Lamb, who has shown promise in his rookie year, veteran and Pro Bowler Amari Cooper, and Ezekiel Elliott. The team has garnered significant hype for the potential of their offense, especially with their star quarterback returning to take the reins.

The hype will be put through a trial by fire, though, as the Cowboys face the defending champions Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Week 1. It will be a fun game to watch, for sure. Prescott and the Cowboys will look to validate the fanfare and excitement surrounding their team.
