Dak Prescott continues to remain in high spirits.
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.”
Those around the league know that Prescott can handle a little bit of adversity.
ESPN analyst Mark Sanchez had all the respect in the world for the hardship he has endured. Prescott lost his mother years back, and then his brother to suicide this year. He has been questioned by the media, including Skip Bayless, about his battle with depression.
Throw in this horrific injury, Sanchez believes that Dak is “battle tested”
“If there’s anyone that’s battle tested enough to handle something like this, it’s Dak,” Sanchez said on Outside The Lines.
According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, Prescott’s recovery will take between 4-6 months.
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.
