REPORT: Update on Dak Prescott’s Injury and Surgery Status

We finally have the official diagnosis of the that took out of today's game and perhaps ended his season. Prescott was carted off the field in the 3rd Quarter of the ' victory over the .

Dak's injury has been reported as a compound fracture and dislocation of the right ankle. He is undergoing surgery tonight.

According to one source, this type of injury can take several months to heal. A basic ankle fracture might have had Prescott returning by December, but this more severe version could easily mean he won't be back at all in 2020.

How Dak's surgery goes and evaluations at that point will tell the true story. One thing we know for certain is Prescott is one of the toughest quarterbacks in the game; he should be back on the earlier side of whatever timetable he's given.

Our best wishes go to Dak Prescott for a good surgery and speedy recovery.

Thanks for the update, hope he has a quick recovery!


Love u Dak we as cowboy fans looking forward to your return

Mr. Football

Praying for Dak to have a full recovery. Andy Dalton will get the Cowboys to the playoffs. Take it to the bank

Mr. Bambosaul

For all you Dak haters, be careful what you wish for. Dak was having a pro bowl season, Yet, the Dak haters cherry picked every move Dak made to move the Cowboys despite the swiss cheese defense. Dak should have been sign long term 2 years ago. Yet he was on a prove it deal. Hopefully, Dalton will keep the ship afloat to the playoffs. I truly believe that Dak will finally receive his long term deal with the Cowboys once he is healthy because of the overwhelming support and respect he received, that Romo never go, when he was out in 2015. That goes to show you how most of the players in the NFL thought about Romo outside of Dallas. Jerry pay the man, he deserved it.

Prayers For my quarterback 4️⃣….. We wish you a speedy recovery and can’t wait to get you back on the field. Love You DAK 4️⃣DC4L


Good morning cowboy fans.few seconds on Dax injury a compound fracture is a horrible injury bye it’s self but he also has a dislocation there can be some torn tendons.dax will need a lot of time to heal,rehab it’s early in this season as long as things move slow his recovery will put him on a schedule to be ready for the start of next season.I prey for him to stay positive. He’s a good man with a big for the game.i think Jason Garrett play calling was GREAT.our front 7 played good( got physical today)our DB’s did like a little better they play hard but on crossing routes they get confused and leave a WR wide open.truth is we’re not going to out score teams under Andy(dalton) he does things different than Dax,the coaches will this week design a game plan on the offense to his strengths.we will run the ball first throw off of I think it is even more important for Dallas to go find a safety and sign weddle or Thomas or a trade got to get help at that spot the defense is now got to be better. Jaylon smith played out of his mind today.LVE looks to be back next week so that will be jerry and company most go find what will sure up our safety struggles. Look at it this way you get a good, smart safety back there you can blitz more off the edge and not be exposing us to the big play. It was a good win today but at a huge cost.(DAX INJURY)
