Dak Prescott had his first doctor’s visit following surgery Sunday night to repair a compound fracture and dislocation of his right ankle.

The Cowboys quarterback said in a social media post he is “ready to get this journey started.”

“Just ready to start this road to comeback,” Prescott said. “I know this little adversity is just going to be another chapter in the book. I’m excited to move forward and write it. . . . I’m in great spirits. I’m going to stay that way. Looking forward to this football season, seeing the game in a different perspective and supporting my teammates and those around the league that need. Just excited. Excited for God’s purpose and God’s plan. I know it’s bigger than anything that I see or could have imagined. But I’m trusting him. My faith is doubled down more than ever.”

Prescott also thanked everyone for their support and prayers. J.J. Watt, Troy Aikman, Patrick Mahomes, Carson Wentz, Richard Sherman, Dwayne Haskins and Dirk Nowitzki were among those who tweeted their well wishes to Prescott after his injury during Sunday’s victory over the Giants.

“I just want everyone to know that I’m doing well and I can’t thank you enough for all your love, your support, your prayers over the last few days” Prescott said. “They’ve been more than overwhelming. From teammates to family to friends to fans I don’t know to current and former players around the league and players around all sports. I just wanted to say thank you. They’re definitely appreciated and received well.”

Prescott’s injury is expected to take four to six months to heal.

  1. This story will have a great ending. The Cowboys have a couple other players who are playing right now, despite having to overcome extremely long odds. Jaylen Smith and Aldon Smith. Both these guys are playing better than ever. I have no doubt Dak Prescott will return and take his career to a higher level, too.

  2. Never been much of a Dak fan but I gained much respect for him when he spoke out on depression regarding his brothers struggles and ultimate suicide regarding their mothers passing as well as Dak’s own struggles. That’s not easy stuff to open up about (source:me every day). I found it despicable when Bayless and others railed on him.

    While I’m not convinced he’s worth the $$$ he’s hoping for (yet), he’s was certainly on the right track to making the point that he was. IMO if Dallas had half a defense they could easily be undefeated.

  3. Im going to use his outlook on faith for motivation. Thank you Dak for opening my eyes again. Best of luck.

  4. I understand his injury was probably painful, but its only a 4-6 month recovery. I dont see people making this big of a deal for acl tears and those usually take a whole year to recover. Sometimes longer than that.

  5. As a football fan in general this is such a bummer! Dak’s a baller tho so I won’t be surprised if he comes back and picks up where he left off!

  6. I think Dak is pretty likeable and I hope he makes a full recovery… However, its going to be very interesting to see how this all plays out… Dak should have taken Jerry’s offer of one hundred and sixty freaking five million dollars ($105 million guaranteed)… That might not be there again if Dalton plays well. Who turns down 105 mil guaranteed? The answer should be nobody, but….
