Dallas Cowboys quarterback Dak 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.
While Prescott showed his emotions on national television, Spiranac was perfectly blunt with FOX Sports analyst Skip Bayless.
“I swear if Skip Bayless says anything about Dak crying I’ll punch him,” she tweeted.
Bayless has been heavily criticized since the beginning of September for his take on Dak and his mental health. Bayless openly questioned Prescott’s ability to be a leader, while he admitted that he suffers from depression.
“Because of all that, I don’t have sympathy for him going public that ‘I got depressed. I suffered depression early in COVID to the point that I couldn’t even go work out,’” Bayless said on Undisputed on Thursday. “Look, he’s the quarterback of America’s Team. You know and I know, this sport that you play, it is dog eat dog. It is no compassion. No quarter given on the football field. If you reveal publicly any little weakness, it can affect your team’s ability to believe in you in the toughest spots and it definitely could encourage others on the other side to come after you.”
Those around the league have called for Bayless to quit over his comments. For Spiranac, she appears to have just joined the crowd.
