Even the neighbors are pulling for Dak Prescott.
Prescott suffered a compound fracture in his ankle during the third quarter of Dallas’ 37-34 win over the New York Giants. The injury required surgery late Sunday night, but the updates provided signaled that Prescott will likely make a full recovery.
Prescott was in tears when he was carted off the field due to his high competitive nature. It broke all the hearts of Cowboys players and those around the league.
Prescott was playing on a one-year franchise tag in hopes of securing a longer commitment from the team. Prescott was offered a five-year contract, but Prescott refused in hopes of securing more guaranteed money. He could have held out, but elected to sign the exclusive franchise tag.
Players around the league posted on Twitter their tributes, but his neighbors went out of their way to show their support as well.
There was a sign in Prescott’s yard that said, “Get well soon! Love, your neighbors.”
Moving forward, the Cowboys will use 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.
