Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott has sent his first public message since suffering a compound fracture of his ankle in last Sunday’s game against the New York Giants.
He was released from the hospital on Monday and took to Instagram on Thursday to share his gratitude for the well wishes he has received from everywhere.
Prescott signed a one-year franchise tag contract worth $31.4 million during the offseason after failing to negotiate a long-term deal with the team.
Executive vice president Stephen Jones put fears that Presott’s injury could impact his place on the team to rest on Monday when he called him the “future” of the Cowboys.
“Absolutely not. He’s our future. He’s special. If anyone can overcome anything it will be Dak. It’s something our doctors feel like he’ll overcome, and he’ll come back better than ever.”
