Mike McCarthy Expects Dak Prescott to be Back for Training Camp

In a yesterday as part of the Dallas Cowboys' rookie camp, stated that Quarterback Dak Prescott is expected to be medically cleared to participate at later this summer.

Prescott suffered a season-ending ankle in October of 2020 which required surgery to fix. Dak was on a record-setting pace in passing yards over those first five weeks, which helped him secure a lucrative long-term contract from the Cowboys this despite the major injury.

Thankfully, it doesn't appear this injury will cost Prescott any significant offseason work. McCarthy even said he should be able to participate in the practices and camps during late-May and June, though to what extent remains to be seen.

Getting QB1 back for the official training camp is huge for any team, but especially now as the Cowboys look to retool following a dismal 6-10 season and return to playoff contention. And after being out since October, Dak and his teammates will have even more work to do to re-find their rhythm.

The official start date for camp has not yet been announced. Because they play in the this year, the Cowboys and will likely be granted an earlier start to their camps than the rest of the NFL.

Thankfully, whenever that is, Dak Prescott should be a full participant.

  1. The Cowboys really need to have Competition for every position. No one should be exempt from the Competition. Their salary or contract shouldn’t have a factor. If Jerry Jones really wants to win the Super Bowl then he needs to encourage the Coaches to have a Competition in every position and may the best player win the Starter Job and the Backup.
