This was some great news for Dak Prescott and the Dallas Cowboys.
Just one week after the New York Giants ended Prescott’s season, he received some good news about his upcoming recovery. According to ESPN insider Adam Schefter, Prescott has no post-surgical infection on his right leg.
According to Schefter, the source close to the situation said that everything is “so far, so good.”
Prescott suffered a compound fracture in his right leg against the Giants. Prescott had to get surgery later Sunday evening. He’s taken to Instagram to document his progress.
While talking to Instagram on Thursday, Prescott said he was “in good spirits” as he headed to the doctor’s office. He thanked everyone that offered him tributes and well wishes.
“I’m doing well and I can’t thank you all enough for your love and support…” Dak said. “From teammates to family to friends to friends I don’t know to former and current players around the league…”
In the video, Prescott smiled the entire time as he said he was ready to begin his road to recovery. He called this event “adversity” and just “another chapter in the book” and that he “is ready to move forward and write it.”
Leading the charge will now be former Cincinnati Bengal Andy Dalton.
Dalton helped muscle the Cowboys to a 37-34 win over the Giants. Despite not scoring any touchdowns, he helped set up two critical field goals as he finished with 111 yards passing and a QBR of 108.7.
The Cowboys sit at the top of the division with a 2-3 overall record.
