Dallas Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott gave fans plenty of cause for concern after leaving practice with shoulder soreness earlier this week. A new timeline has been set for his return to practice after he was diagnosed with a muscle strain.
Speaking to the media on Thursday, Cowboys head coach Mike McCarthy estimated that Dak could return to throwing in “two, three days.” McCarthy said that Dak will continue to do everything except throw until that time but made it clear that he should be ready for mock games.
“Dak will still do all the drill work, he’ll be able do all the mock games,” McCarthy said, via ProFootballTalk. “We are going to stop throwing here for a few more days.”
McCarthy believes that the Cowboys made a good decision by removing Dak from practice after he began having problems. McCarthy is confident that Dak will be available for preseason.

Dak Prescott missed 11 games last year due to a serious ankle injury that he sustained in Week 5. The Cowboys offense soon became weak and finished the season with a record of 6-10.
The Cowboys signed Dak to a huge contract extension in the offseason.
The Cowboys are determined to keep him safe as they enter the 2021 season. Mike McCarthy, the Cowboys’ head coach, will do everything he can to protect his tenure.
Dak, get well soon! Also, Happy Birthday!
