Cowboys Announce Why Dak Prescott Left Practice Early

Dak Prescott has been back with the Dallas Cowboys, fully recovered from the serious leg injury that ended his 2020 season. Fans were however understandably anxious after today’s practice.

Michael Gehlken, Dallas Morning News reports that Prescott ran off the field during today’s training. Prescott was a spectator for 7-on-7s as well as 11-on-11s. However, there was no evidence that Prescott’s departure was due to an ankle injury.

ESPN’s Todd Archer quickly revealed the reason. Archer stated that Prescott felt “some soreness in his throwing arm.” The issue is being investigated further by the team.

Archer was told by a Cowboys spokesperson that Prescott experienced the pain early in practice. They decided to not push it.

Dak Prescott just returned from a season-ending ankle injury which kept him out of football for several months. He was on track for a career year as a quarterback before that injury.

In his absence, Dallas’ offense was severely affected. In his absence, they went from scoring an average of over 30 points per game for the first five weeks to scoring a total of 42 points over the next four weeks.

The team finished the season at 6-10 and missed the playoffs the second consecutive year.

The Cowboys, with Dak Prescott in good health, are potential Super Bowl candidates and contenders for the NFC East title. They’ll struggle to finish with nine wins without him.

Prescott should be in full health soon so that he can return to the field.
