As the offseason begins to transition into the preseason, there isn't a more anticipated practice field sighting than that of Dak Prescott. His return from the ankle fracture he sustained in 2020 will be the biggest story to follow the Dallas Cowboys through OTAs, minicamp, and training camp as the Cowboys gear up for the 2021 NFL Season.
Yesterday, as part of his initiative with Walk On's and OurCalling, Dak Prescott was in Dallas handing out meals to those in need. He took time to speak with the media and was asked about where he was in relation to on-field activity.

In the video from Calvin Watkins of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram, Prescott indicated that he's close and could go play in a game right now if he had to and be “very successful.” Prescott said, “There's no doubt that when I need to be successful when I need to do the things it takes to be on the field, I'm going to do exactly that, and the timing will be right. ”
It will be exciting to see him back on the field and leading an offense that was on pace for some historic numbers in 2021. The offense is bringing back everyone from the start of the 2020 season and a healthy Tyron Smith and La'el Collins will help make the Cowboys one of the most dangerous offensive teams in recent years. If the defense is able to improve even a little bit from their horrendous 2020, then this will be one of the best teams in the NFL in 2021.
Dak Prescott is poised for a Comeback Player of the Year season, but if things go right, should also contend for Most Valuable Player. Even if he doesn't win either award, his work in the Dallas-Fort Worth community and the way he's made himself a part of the Metroplex makes him one of the most valuable and important figures in DFW.
