  1. Our thoughts and prayers are with you Dak. You’ve got this recovery thing. One day at a time, one step at a time. The RedRifle will keep your seat warm although he will likely limit our RPOs. Everything happens for a reason, you will be fine and the ‘Boys will just have to deal without our franchise quarterback.

  2. I’m amazed every time I turn on a Dallas game and see Jaylen Smith and Aldon Smith both playing, and playing at a very high level. I have no doubt Dak Prescott will return healthy and better than ever.

  3. Huge Cowboys fan here. Prayers up for Dak my dude! Had a good friend meet you down here in Orlando a couple of years ago and he’s a Cowboys hater. He said you were a genuine good guy buying drinks for everyone at the bar while not really trying to be noticed or even looking for the acknowledgement and in fact it took him some time before he even noticed it was you because of the humility. Our Star is at half mast today! We salute you Dak, get well soon!

  4. Hoping for complete an full recovery for you. The future is clearly uncertain, but the focus now is to heal and get back into the mix. God speed.

  5. People wonder why players hold out over contract disputes and always demand top dollar. This is why.
