Thursday’s injury report from the Dallas Cowboys featured the most prominent names. Quarterback Dak Prescott was limited to practice due to an ankle injury.
Prescott confirmed that the ankle in question was the right one. He also said the same thing about the injury he sustained in 2020.
The quarterback says that Thursday’s news should not be a cause for concern. Cowboys’ spokesperson explained that it was due to discomfort from wearing new shoes during practice.
“I feel great. I still feel the best that I’ve felt in a long time,” said Prescott according to Dallas Morning News’ Michael Gehlken. “I’m good to go. I promise you.”
Cowboys QB Dak Prescott: “It is the (right) ankle.” Same one he injured in 2020. Team “just being very, very cautious. …I’m just excited and ready for Sunday.” https://t.co/CqywQFPgIK

The Cowboys were right to be cautious. Prescott is a great player and you know that you don’t need to put him at risk. Remember that Dak has had surgery on his right leg and it makes sense for him to be stopped if the cleats he is wearing aren’t making him feel right.
It’s better to be safe than sorry
Although some Cowboys fans may feel a bit uncomfortable tonight due to the flashbacks and scare, this seems like an insignificant issue that will not have any impact on the play of the quarterback on Sunday Night. The quarterback sustained no injury.
Michael Gallup was the only notable injury news. He was wearing full pads for the first-time since he tore the ACL last year. However, he is not expected to return for at least a few weeks.
