Cody Bellinger remains positive in a challenging season
Dallas Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott suffers from a shoulder injury that is common among baseball players.
The Dallas Cowboys started their offseason with full confidence in quarterback Dak Prescott, as evidenced by his monumental contract. But at the start of training camp, Prescott was sidelined with a shoulder injury that many didn’t consider too serious. However, a new report shows that this is not the case.
According to Jay Glazer of FOX Sports, Prescott had a shoulder injury that was “more like a baseball injury.” The Cowboys believe he will be ready for Week 1, but they have contacted the Texas Rangers training staff for help with treating the injury.
Cowboys: Dak Prescott’s shoulder injury “more like a baseball injury”
Earlier this week, Cowboys head coach Mike McCarthy said Prescott had “taken a step back” from his shoulder strain and would expose it to avoid it becoming “something bigger”. Now, this latest report describes Prescott’s illness as a “baseball injury.” While the Cowboys fans may be nervous, the team is confident he’ll be on the field for the 2021 season.
The Cowboys learned last season how difficult things can be without Prescott starting below the middle. In a week 5 matchup against the New York Giants, Prescott suffered a complicated fracture and dislocation of his right ankle while attempting to scramble. He was ruled out for the remainder of the season and the Cowboys finished the campaign with a 6-10 record.
Even during the end-of-season operation, the Cowboys and Prescott agreed on a four-year, $ 160 million deal. That was how much confidence the Cowboys had in Prescott’s ability to lead the team on what would hopefully be a trip to the Super Bowl soon.
While Prescott is grappling with an injury usually more seen in MLB than the NFL, the Cowboys fully expect him for their week one match against reigning Super Bowl champion Tampa Bay Buccaneers under the Middle stands.
