Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescot left the field in an ambulance, while his tears ran down his face because of a gruesome injury occurred.
Prescott was taken immediately to a local hospital, where he is expected to undergo surgery for a compound ankle and dislocation on Sunday night as he got injured during a Cowboy’s win against the Giants.
It was in the 3rd quarter when he experienced the gruesome injury and scrambled left (up to 9 yards), tangling with Logan Ryan, Giants’ defensive back on Ryan’s tackle. The right leg of Prescott suffered an injury as he sat, distressed of Giants defensive back, close to the red zone of the left sideline.
Players gathered around him to assess his injury and the stadium went quiet…
“It’s tough,” running back and draft classmate Ezekiel Elliott stated. “You see how durable he’s been throughout his whole career, and how tough. It sucks to see a warrior go down like that.”
Prescott was immediately recieved sterile dressing on the field before the surgery.
Jason Garett, the Giants coordinator, also approached Mike McCarthy, Cowboys coach to express his concerns over Prescott’s injury.
The Cowboys recorded 2-3 under McCarthy and taken over the first place in a weak NFC East. But unfortunately, the postgame celebration took a terrible turn after Prescott’s injury.
“I feel terrible for him,” stated McCarthy. “He’s clearly the leader of this football team. I have no doubt that he’ll bounce back from this. This will be just a part of his great story. This will be another chapter of his great story.”
Prescott finished 14 of 21 successful attempts for 66 yards along with an interception before exiting the game. He ran twice for 7 yards…
He is also the first Cowboys quarterback to catch a receiving touchdown after more than 30 years.
The Cowboys entered 2020 at 1-3 even. After all, Prescott, in NFL history, became the first quarterback to throw for 450 yards in consecutive three games. Prescott also became the first quarterback to throw for 450 yards in Dallas’ win against the Falcons.
