Dallas Cowboys QB Dak Prescott injured during yesterday's win vs. Pats

Okay, so a bit of a good news/bad news situation here.

First, the good news. The Dallas Cowboys enjoyed a dramatic victory over the New England Patriots yesterday thanks to a 35 yard overtime touchdown pass from QB Dak Prescott to Ceedee Lamb, securing the win and improving the Cowboys to 5-1 in 2021. 

The bad news? Prescott was injured on the play. He came down awkwardly after completing the throw, and had to be helped to the locker room. He's now wearing a walking boot and is slated to undergo further testing, but for now, the team has classified the injury as a calf strain. 

Thankfully, according to the man himself, he doesn't believe that it's a serious setback.

"Life keeps throwing punches," Prescott said. "And I'll keep throwing them back. It doesn't hurt as bad when you score and win the game."

"I'll be fine," he continued. "I can promise you that. Great timing going into the bye week but as I said y'all can have fun with it this week."

Another portion of good news - this injury is coming at an ideal time, as Dallas is entering their bye week. Prescott will have an extra week to heal and hopefully be back at full strength in two weeks.

It's been just over one year now that Dak Prescott was carted off the field in obvious, excruciating pain after suffering a gruesome ankle injury against the New York Giants last season.
