Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott has sent his first public message since suffering a compound fracture of his ankle in last Sunday’s game.

Prescott was taken to the hospital and had surgery on Sunday night to repair the injury. He was released from the hospital on Monday and went on Instagram to share his gratitude for the good wishes he’s received in the last few days.

Prescott also vowed to make it more than all the way back from the injury.

“Forever thankful for the love and support I’ve received. I’ll be back stronger and better. Thank you all,” Prescott wrote.

While there are contractual issues to sort out to ensure Prescott will be in Dallas next year, Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said that the team anticipates Prescott being able to do some work at the tail end of the 2021 offseason program and that he will be ready to start next season.

  1. And Jerry will overpay him based on his “potential” thus leading the Cowboys into yet another five years of mediocrity.

  2. Dak won’t be back in a Dallas uniform. If Jerruh was going to pay him, he would’ve done it already.

  3. NEWSFLASH: you never come back from a double fracture, torn ligaments being stronger. But, we are all betting on you that you will return as good as ever, which is damn good! Get well and get paid! The NFL needs you.

  4. What kills me is the media screaming ‘Jerry did Dak wrong’ now that he is hurt…where were the screams when ‘Dak was betting on himself and breaking NFL records’. Can’t have it both ways. Jerry made fair offer, Dak didn’t accept…done. we all pick our paths and accept the risks that go along with them. Now the media says Dak will have many suitors…LMAO…but does Dak really want to play for the (insert bottom 10 teams under salary cap…JETS).

    Better? Is he expecting the entire game to be played in garbage time?

    Garbage time? Do you even watch football? Every game they had a lead or chance to take a lead late in the 4th quarter, but just because they ended up losing it makes it “garbage time?” I get it, most people hate the Cowboys and their players, but Dak was easily playing like a top 5, if not top 3 QB this season.

    Is it still considered garbage time if they take the lead or win the game?

    No. The problem is he never wins them. He just pads his stats once they get down big.

  7. Dak ill believe it when i see it. You need to start winning some games because you may throw for allot of yards. Thats great but i have yet to see you winning allot of games and getting to the big games. Again ill believe it when i see it. Ice up son

    Didn’t know it was a one man sport… One of, if not the worst defense in the league, and a depleted offensive line. Don’t give me the QB Winz argument

  9. folks talking ‘Garbage Time’ don’t watch the games, just an example: the Cowboys were beating the undefeated, already anointed MVP Seahawks with 4min to go in the game. Just ask yourself…’can my QB throw for 450 yards, if we are down by 20′?….you know the answer…NO

  10. Dak was able to mask a LOT of O-Line deficiencies with his legs… I sure hope Dalton knows how to get rid of the ball in less than 3 seconds, because he only has a small fraction of Dak’s ability to escape.

    Funny, because every quarterback and his overly-sensitive fans say that very thing when the team isn’t winning and the QB gets criticized for it.
    Yet when it’s contract time those same QBs demand to be paid a huge chunk of their team’s salary cap, while they and their defenders trumpet stats and toss around words like “deserve” and “earned” and “underpaid.”
    Which is it, because you can’t have it both ways. If a guy can say with a straight face he and his position are so important he deserves a fifth or a quarter of a 53-man-team’s cap money, then said player must also say the ‘buck stops with me’ and be willing to accept criticism when his team isn’t winning.
    You can’t say ‘I put up great stats and we win because of me,’ then use the excuse ‘it’s other people’s fault and I don’t have enough help’ when criticized for losing.

    You’re not wrong about that. Plenty of QBs are overpaid….. but I’m not defending his pay or what he should be paid

    My argument was that the Cowboys are missing their left and right tackles and have an awful defense. Not an ideal situation to win games.

    Dak played at a high level in all 5 games this year and is the furthest thing from the reason they’ve lost 3 games so far
