Usually when Dak Prescott’s name comes up, it mostly has to do with him and the front office trying to either workout a long-term deal or be headed for yet another franchise tag type of year.

This time around, it has to do with his health following surgery on his ankle and an unreported second ankle surgery that reportedly “is not a setback.”

The newest rumor comes via a sports talk host who is claiming that Prescott might ‘never play again.’

Dr. David Chao — popularly referred to on Twitter as the “Pro Football Doc” — strongly refuted that speculation on Twitter.

“No way #Dak doesn’t play again, IMO. BTW, I might win the lottery. There is a chance he is not 100%, but I think he makes a full recovery,” Chao tweeted Saturday.

105.3 The Fan’s Mike Bacsik also shockingly claimed Dallas might “release” Prescott later this summer.

“I think there’s a possibility they release Dak Prescott in June,” Bacsik said. “I know something that nobody else knows and it’s very tough to keep my mouth shut on this. I’m just telling you, I know something, and the Cowboys know it too, and Dak knows it, too.”

“I’m rooting for Dak to comeback healthy. I’ve prayed for Dak to be heeled by the hand of God. I want him to lead the Cowboys to a championship. I don’t hate Dak and I’m not trying to ruin his career. For those taking it that way, I’m sorry if I have presented it that way,” Bacsik later clarified on Twitter.
