When Quarterback Dak Prescott suffered a compound fracture and dislocation of his right ankle the Dallas Cowboys season went up in smoke. They would lose four consecutive games after his injury and finish a disappointing 6-10.
Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reported on Saturday that Prescott is walking, using an anti-gravity treadmill, and is doing work in a HydroWorx pool which takes the pressure off the ankle.
“Based on the work he’s put in, what they think, he’s going to come back better than ever,” Rapoport said Saturday on NFL GameDay Morning.
Having Prescott back healthy puts the Cowboys right back in the mix in the NFC. However, the biggest issue surrounding the star signal-caller is his contract situation. He played on a franchise tag that paid him $31.4 million in 2020 and will go up to around $37.7 million in 2021 if another tag is applied, which neither Prescott nor the organization wants.
Round three of the negotiating game is upon us, and the hope is that Prescott and the organization find a way to come to a common ground.
