An MRI of Dak Prescott‘s right shoulder revealed “purely precautionary” is a muscle strain, the Cowboys announced.

Todd Archer of ESPN reports Prescott has a latissimus strain in his throwing shoulder.

The Cowboys say the quarterback will undergo treatment, with athletic trainers and doctors evaluating him on a day-by-day basis.

Thus, it is unknown when Prescott might practice again.

“I felt some soreness when making certain throws today, and I really just decided not to push things too far,” Prescott said in a statement released by the team. “Better to be cautious and smart about it. I don’t see this as any kind of serious setback. We’ll treat it on a daily basis, and I’ll be fine.”

Prescott did not participate in team drills Wednesday, leaving for the locker room before practice ended.

The Cowboys went 2-3 in Prescott’s starts last season and 4-7 with Garrett Gilbert, Andy Dalton and Ben DiNucci starting games in his absence. Prescott’s season-ending right ankle injury happened in Week 5 against the Giants.

Dalton left in free agency, leaving Gilbert, Cooper Rush and DiNucci to compete for the backup job behind Prescott.

  1. Probably stained it carrying all that money to the bank that Jerry wasted on him.

  2. I hate the Cowboys but Dak seems like a nice guy, I wish him well but not the team.

  3. Are they sure his ankle is good to go? Could the arm injury be from protecting the ankle?

  4. Lets be honest…..they are 0-1 no matter what. Dak ain’t beating the GOAT. LFG Bucs!!!

  5. Remember that massive contract offer he thought was “insulting”? LOL.

  6. Dak is a great guy but he’s a below average nfl qb who gets credit for being on the nfls most overrated team. He consistently gets ranked above Lamar Jackson in all the nfl guru rankings. Its laughable and borderline incompetence

  7. Coming off that serious an injury I was surprised they had him full-go in camp. And could this be related to the ankle? Lots of funny things can happen when your body is trying to protect an injury. And even if he’s 100% healed it takes a while for your body to adjust and really trust the injured area.
