Dak Prescott’s Recovery From Compound Fracture, Ankle Dislocation Is Ahead Of Schedule

    When suffered a compound fracture and dislocation of his right ankle and was lost for the season it pretty much ended all hope for the to have a successful 2020 campaign. The Cowboys survived that Week 5 matchup with the , but haven't won a game since.

    Cowboys COO was asked several questions during a midseason meeting on Monday, and of course, the main topic was Prescott. Jones said that Prescott is not only doing well but he's ahead of his recovery time.

    “This is a four-month and so far, if anything, everything we’re getting from (associate athletic trainer Britt Brown) and the doctors is that he’s ahead of schedule,” Jones said, per 's Todd Archer. “He’s been able to avoid any setbacks and if anything, he’s ahead of schedule, which shouldn’t be a surprise.”

    Before Prescott suffered his gruesome injury he was having a career year, to say the least. His 1,856 yards (371 yards per game) led the NFL and he was completing 68% of his passes with a 99.6 rating.

    The Cowboys were the top in the league at the time, but have fallen off dramatically since. They've scored 41 points during their current four-game losing streak, with nearly half of that (19) coming in last Sunday's loss to the . They were averaging 32.6 points per game with Prescott under .

    When it comes to Prescott the biggest elephant in the room is his current contract situation. He signed a in June that would pay him $31.4 million in 2020. If no long-term deal is reached next , a second tag would put around $37.7 million in his pocket in 2021.

    Jones mentioned on Monday that the organization and Prescott haven't had any discussions about his contract since his injury.

    “We really haven't had any conversations with Dak since his injury other than talk about how he's doing physically in terms of his injury and rehab,” Jones said. “We haven't talked about in particular the future or anything to do with the contract at this point.”

    The only thing left now is for Prescott to continue his progress and come back even better, which he's shown he's capable of throughout his career.

    On a totally different subject …continuing to go with Terrace Steele and not even signing a free agent tackle with some experience, tells me the Cowboys are in total tank mode. But if so, why not shut down Ezekiel Elliot and save wear and tear on his body? Unless he’s going the way of Todd Gurley

    I wouldn’t take anything Jerry says at face value. Of course he will publicly endorse Dak. But this situation will remain fluid. Obviously if we draft a QB it’s the end of the Dak era. But if we don’t then it’s a “here we go again ” deal. I really like Dak as our QB but frankly I’m sick and tired of the will we or won’t we sign him. I understand the apprehension of signing him to a huge contract, and the implications involved with that.

    Matthew – My question is if we are unable to get Lawrence or Fields (which is a good possibility) What do we do about our QB situation? Do we reach for Wilson or Lance? Do we look at the FA market? I like the idea of a stud rookie QB for cap purposes and allowing us more flexibility to build our roster (especially defense) but I don’t wanna reach for one. All these options come with risks. That potential top 5 pick needs to be a can’t miss type prospect IMHO. U don’t get those picks very often so we need an impact player.

    If no QB I like LB Parsons LT Sewell CB Surtain. We need a DE too, but I’m not sure there is one worthy of that pick. Also need to address DT and Safety at some point. Also possible we trade back for additional picks, but the farther we trade down the less chance we have of hitting on a big time player.

    Good to hear that ole Dak is coming along good! Hope he gets back better than ever! Talking about our needs …… we have to have a blind side tackle! I just don’t know how much TS has left in the ole body!

    Ya that’s the biggest issue I’ve had all year with MM ! Terrance “Aluminum” Steele doesn’t deserve to be starting for this team or in the NFL for that matter!
