The Dallas Cowboys are not doing a great job convincing their fans that Dak Prescott’s shoulder injury should not be a concern.
The Cowboys’ franchise quarterback was limited to non-throwing drills over a week ago due to a “strained shoulder muscle”. There is no timetable for his return to practice after feeling tightness and soreness, which was described as “atypical.”
Troy Aikman, Fox Sports NFL analyst, stated that Prescott’s injury was worse than the team is letting on during last week’s Hall of Fame Game.
The team announced Wednesday night that Prescott had received another MRI, but assured fans “not worry” that he will be available for the start to the season.
It's not a setback.
And it's not a reason to worry.
But QB Dak Prescott is planning on getting another MRI.

Cowboys fans began to panic immediately after the team told them to not worry about Dak.
