Former Cowboys great and FOX analyst Troy Aikman is among those who are heartbroken for Dallas quarterback Dak Prescott.
Aikman joined a long line of members around the league in a heartfelt tribute. Prescott, the Cowboys’ starting quarterback since 2016, suffered a serious ankle injury late in the third quarter against the New York Giants.
The former Mississippi State quarterback was carted off the field with tears in his eyes at AT&T Stadium.
Aikman wrote that he was “devastated” for Prescott and called him one of the greatest peop\le in the NFL.
Devastated for @dak – one of the truly great people in the NFL

Prescott went on to have surgery last Sunday night as Andy Dalton came in to lead the team over the winless Giants.
As for other rivals in the division, Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Carson Wentz took to Twitter to express his concern.
Since Wentz suffered a torn ACL in the 2017 season, he has not looked like his former MVP self. During that season, Wentz was playing like the league’s potential MVP before he had to sit back and watch Nick Foles lead the Philadelphia Eagles to their first Super Bowl title.
Wentz saw the serious leg injury to Dallas Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott on Sunday afternoon. Against the New York Giants, Prescott went down late in the third quarter and underwent surgery.
After the injury occurred, Wentz was like many from the rest of the league that took to Twitter to extend his best wishes.
“Worst part of the game. Definitely praying for @dak,” tweeted Wentz.
The Eagles and Cowboys may be rivals, but at the end of the day, we are all human beings. Nobody ever wishes for anyone to suffer an injury or get seriously hurt.
