According to Jay Glazer of FOX Sports, the quarterback of the Dallas cowboys suffered “a baseball injury”, which occurred “under his armpit.” But Prescott is in no danger of missing the first game of the season, at Tampa Bay.
“Let’s be clear: They have no doubts that he will be the starter in the first game of the season,” Glazer reported before Thursday’s Hall of Fame game between Dallas and Pittsburgh. However, it is not a common injury for this sport. It is similar to an injury that occurs in baseball. What’s more, it happened he lowered his armpit. Dallas Cowboys coaches have reached out to Texas Rangers coaches to ask for their help.
“But they have no doubt that he is ready for the first game.”
Glazer’s information differs from the team’s statement that was released on July 28 after Prescott left training with an upset man. It had been said at the time that it was a minor issue.
“After leaving training today with pain in his right arm, Dallas Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott underwent an MRI in Oxnard, California.” according to team statement. “The results showed that Prescott has a sprained right shoulder. He will receive treatment and will be evaluated daily ”.
The Cowboys had planned for Prescott to pitch again after his first exhibition game. However, according to the team’s coach, Mike McCarthy, that will no longer be the case, as the team decided to change their plans and delay Dak’s return.
“It is important to inform your [Prescott] situation, ”McCarthy told reporters Tuesday. “I think we have taken a step back.” We think the same about the type of injury he has, we are just being more conservative with the times. It will not launch today. He will not play Thursday’s game.
“After examining it and considering the situation, we don’t want it to get more serious,” McCarthy continued. “He is doing everything possible, but we are being more conservative with his rehabilitation.”
Prescott will be reevaluated before the Cowboys’ second exhibition game on Aug. 13, against the Arizona Cardinals. But it wouldn’t be a surprise if the $ 160 million quarterback doesn’t play the entire preseason.
Dak is not worried about his situation before the first game
Prescott spoke to Fox Sports at halftime of the Hall of Fame game in Canton. The two-time pro-bowler reconfirmed in his interview that he is “very confident” about his operated right ankle and not that he is not really worried about being left out of the team due to his shoulder problem.
“Now I just want to recover from the injury to my man,” Prescott said, via Jon Machota of The Athletic. “We are just being cautious. We take it one day at a time. The season is five weeks away, so I have plenty of time.
