Dak Prescott’s Tears After Devastating Injury Show NFL Can Be Brutal | sport


TThe Dallas Cowboys won their game on Sunday, but they lost a lot more. Six minutes from the end of the third quarter, quarterback Dak Prescott suffered a devastating ankle injury. It was a blow to the Cowboys, who will need to find a way to continue without their most important player and another, as if necessary, reminder of the risks involved in playing in the NFL.After the game, a 37-34 victory, the team announced that Prescott suffered a compound fracture and dislocation of his right ankle. It’s too early to expect a schedule for his return, but it’s hard to imagine Prescott’s return this season. It’s not nothing since Prescott entered this campaign playing under the one-year franchise label. He was close to signing a big contract with the Cowboys (or another team) at the end of the season. That contract – and his future with Dallas – is less clear now that teams may well have doubts about his fitness. Meanwhile, the Cowboys will look to veteran quarterback Andy Dalton, whom they brought in exactly for this type of scenario. Dalton is one of the most overqualified substitute quarterbacks in the league, but he is still behind Prescott, who led the league in total passing yards this season.
