Dak Prescott headed to hospital for “serious right ankle injury”

USA TODAY Sports

The Cowboys announced the expected news: Dak Prescott has a “serious right ankle injury.”

He is being transported to a local hospital for further evaluation. ESPN reports Prescott will undergo surgery tonight.

It appeared the quarterback’s ankle was displaced on a tackle by Logan Ryan at the end of a 9-yard scramble.

Prescott was carted off with 6:33 remaining in the third quarter.

He was in tears on the ride to the locker room.

Prescott has started all 69 games of his career, but the Cowboys upgraded at the backup spot in the offseason in signing Andy Dalton.

Dallas leads 31-23 early in the fourth quarter.

  1. Eagles fan here. Horrible injury, reminiscent of Theisman. I hate to see that happen to any athlete (or person for that matter). Hoping against all odds that it’s somehow not as serious as it looked. Get well soon, Dak.

  2. Dallas will be in the market for a new QB this offseason. No way Dak gets the contract from Jerry now.

  3. Eagles fan here. I hate all things cowboy, but seeing that injury makes me feel like rivalries are trivial. I hope Prescott is ok.

  4. Not a Boy fan, but very sad to hear this. Jones must be grinning because he didn’t pay Prescott. Dak will not play for them again. That bridge is burned.

  5. Talk about contract this and that another day. This saddens me, I never wish injury on anyone. Prayers that he can recover and play well again…

  6. Not looking good for the Cowboys.
    Dak looked like he had the Giants on their heels and total control of the game.
    Dalton came in and started playing Giants Santa Claus.

  7. Well now the Cowboys won’t franchise tag him next year, he will have to prove his worth on a one year deal in Dallas or elsewhere. Stupidity for not reading the market correctly.

    —————————–

    Mr. Jones, Mr. Rodgers line one.

    Good luck Dak, get well soon.

  9. Yep Jets fan has nothing to look forward to no hope and jumps on message boards to spread the love.

  10. He always bets on himself. How’s that working now? One day / one play. I would have taken the $ and run.

  11. Ugly injury, no doubt. Might well be Dak’s last play as a Cowboy. I don’t see Jerry signing him in the off-season , not knowing his status for 2021.

  12. As someone stated above, I feel bad for him but when a contract is offered, take what you can get. Don’t get greedy. When you’re offered $175 million for five years, TAKE IT!! You can’t spend that much money in your lifetime anyway! Pro athletes don’t know how good they have it.

  13. Not a Cowboys fan but I never like seeing an injury like that. Ever. Hopefully he can recover fully. However, I would not be surprised if he isn’t ready for training camp next year. I only saw the aftermath of the injury and not the entire play but that was a gruesome injury. It reminded me of that WR from Alabama (Tommy Prothro) that suffered a serious leg injury and was never the smae. His was a lower leg break though so maybe Dak’s will be different. Again, not a Cowboys fans but I never like seeing a player’s career end in an injury like that.

  14. Wife had that..they will realign the ankle, including the small fractures in the ankle with the surgery and he’ll have numerous screws and a few plates inserted. He should be up and running in 6 months.

  15. “You have to hope it’s a cramp.” Yeahhhh, no. That’s a very visibly broken ankle. Ouch

  16. Cowboys fans did nothing but gripe and complain about Dak. Well, you got your wish. No Dak…. Enjoy….

    Prayers for Dak! Everything else is trivial.
    ——————-
    Actually, the prayers are pretty trivial too.

  18. Terrible for the camera to keep showing it over and over and Romo not shutting up and letting the mnet speak for itself. Hopefully he can come back soon! Good luck Dak

  19. And so the Dalton era begins.

    Every win that the Red Rifle gets is another reason NOT to sign Dak to an “unfriendly contract.”

  20. I really wish for Dak a speedy and complete recovery. The fans bringing up the contract and how he should have signed a lesser deal are scum. He had a horrible injury let’s wish Dak well. No person is wrong for wanting what they are worth.

  21. tough day for dak, and just to pile on dalton come in and proves hes not worth 40 mill.. ouch

  22. If they say it’s a displaced ankle, he’ll be fine. Still should’ve taken that $175 mil on the table. I mean it’s possible to not go hungry for your and your kid’s lifetimes with the franchise tag money, but we know that won’t happen. We’ve seen this injury before in every sport. The docs will fix him up and he’ll rehab. Question is, where will he play next season? You know if the Boys tailspin and get that #1, Dak is out.

  23. As a bengals fan I can tell you exactly how this plays out. Andy Dalton plays with just enough competence to win a few games and compete for the playoffs in the awful East. Jerry decides that Dalton is not bad enough to justify paying Dak to come back and the boys go 7-9 for the next 2 years. Mediocrity has been burned into AD after the years in cincy and a mediocre qb is the same as hell.

  24. Do you think he called Jerry Jones on the way to the Hospital and said soooo about that contract

  26. Stupid play call. You have all those weapons on offense and you expose your $32 million QB to injury on a QB draw play to gain 9 yards? Idiotic.

    A lot of QB’s have designed run plays. Even though Dak is a big guy, he still needed to protect himself, rather than fighting through tackles.
