Dak Prescott, the Dallas Cowboys QB, has already stated that he will not be participating in this year’s Pro Bowl. He was asked Wednesday why he passed up the chance to participate in this year’s Pro Bowl.
Prescott, who shot a Super Bowl commercial today for 7-Eleven, said he doesn’t want to take any more hits than he has to.
“Didn’t want to take any additional hits I guess you can say or just wear to the body,” Prescott stated, per ESPN’s Todd Archer. “Wanted turn the page, get prepared to just start the next season.”
Prescott has just completed his first season after undergoing ankle surgery.
Why did Dak Prescott pass on playing in the Pro Bowl? “Didn’t want to take any more unnecessary hits I guess you could say or just wear on the body,” Prescott said after a 7-Eleven event at The Star. “Wanted to turn the page, get ready to just start next season.”

In the past, we’ve seen many quarterbacks skip the Pro Bowl. Aaron Rodgers and Tom Brady have already said that they will not attend this year’s Pro Bowl.
Prescott ended the 2021 season with 4,449 yards passing and 37 touchdowns. The Cowboys were eliminated in round one of the playoffs.
Prescott will not be seen again by Cowboys fans until after training camp.
