It’s no secret when it comes to Dak Prescot and Ezekiel Elliott’s relationship.
The two entered the NFL together after being drafted by the Dallas Cowboys in 2016. The two have had the highest of highs, and now Zeke is helping Dak during his lowest of low.
Prescott suffered a compound fracture in his ankle during 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.
While Prescott has remained in the hospital to be monitored, ESPN’s Todd Archer reported that Zeke has visited Prescott every day since the quarterback got hurt. According to Archer, Elliott said, “it is important the Cowboys keep close contact with Prescott.”
“We’re dealing with COVID and we’re already isolated as it is,” Prescott said. “Just for him to have that with the injury, to be out of his normal routine, to be able to leave the house and come see us, and now he can’t even really move around with the ankle. I just think it’s important that we all surround him and show him plenty of love.”

Moving forward, the Cowboys will use backup quarterback Andy Dalton.
Dalton is a 32-year old veteran that gave nine seasons to the Cincinnati Bengals where he was a three-time Pro Bowler. Dalton helped muscle the Cowboys to a 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.
“Dak definitely is special,” Elliott said, according Archer. “He definitely is special but I think we have a lot of pieces in this offense and Andy’s played at a high level in this league. I think we should still be one of the best offenses in the league.”
