Dak Prescott Injury: Cowboys QB to Undergo Second MRI
Dallas Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott will undergo a second MRI on Monday to determine the extent of his injury. Prescott suffered a non-contact knee injury during Sunday’s game against the Washington Redskins and was ruled out for the remainder of the season.
Dak Prescott will undergo a second MRI on his injured ankle. The injury is considered to be minor, but the quarterback will still miss some time.

Dallas Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott will get a second MRI on his injured throwing shoulder, which the team insists will not be a setback before the regular-season start on Sept. 9.
“It’s not a setback,” she says. It’s also not a cause to be concerned. However, quarterback Dak Prescott intends to get another MRI,” the club said as cryptically as possible Wednesday evening.
Prescott hasn’t completely practiced since July 28, when he was diagnosed with a right shoulder injury that lodged beneath his armpit, a condition more typically seen in baseball players, leading Dallas to seek treatment from the Texas Rangers of Major League Baseball. He was then banned from throwing and missed out the preseason opener against Pittsburgh last week.
The good news is that Prescott has been cleared to begin light throwing during Tuesday and Wednesday sessions, under the supervision of the Cowboys’ medical team. The $160 million quarterback is on a pitch and will not throw at full power count until his appendix is re-examined when the team returns home from training camp in Oxnard, Calif., this weekend.
Prescott believes that the restrictions will be lifted in time for the Cowboys to open the 2021 season against the defending Super Bowl champions.
“I’m not going to worry about my arm until I get back in the team setting,” he told reporters on Wednesday, according to the official team website. “It’s all about moving forward at the appropriate moment. It was all quite pleasant out there. I made each and every throw. You don’t want to hear them urge you to stop, but you must (stop).
“When September 9th arrives, I’ll move on and won’t worry about it again.”

Is Dak going to play in the preseason?
Cowboys COO Stephen Jones teased the idea of Prescott suiting up during the preseason period, perhaps as soon as Aug. 21, when Dallas hosts Houston at AT&T Stadium, while making the rounds with the media before breaking camp.
Jones remarked on the team’s official website on Wednesday, “I’d say it’s not out of the question.” “The issue will be whether we do it or not when we get there. It’s simply that as we go forward, we need to make smart, sound, and strong choices for Dak. I wouldn’t rule anything out, though.”
In the next breath, Jones reiterated that Prescott, regardless of whether he sees preseason action or not, would be treated with baby gloves leading up to the aforementioned clash in Tampa Bay.
“I completely see why some folks are skeptical when we’re being so cautious with Dak. You have to protect the man from himself, as you can see with Dak in “Hard Knocks,” Jones remarked. “I mean, he’s a functioning machine who wants to be out there,” says the narrator. He’s a hard worker. He wants to be the leader of this squad, to be out on the field doing everything, but we have to control it.
“We’re going to be very cautious. As you can see, he’ll be just fine. It’s just a matter of handling the situation correctly.”
