During his second game back from a calf injury, Dak Prescott showed no signs of wear and tear in the Dallas Cowboys’ win over the Atlanta Falcons but did show up to his postgame press conference with a bruise under his eye.
Prescott revealed that in a moment of excitement, teammate CeeDee Lamb headbutted him, but the problem was the quarterback was not wearing his helmet.
“Yeah, after the second touchdown, CeeDee, I come off the field put my helmet down and then I see CeeDee coming past me, so I give him a hug and tell him good job, and I guess he thinks I have my helmet on, so he leans in to do the helmet tap and yeah face mask to cheek,” Prescott explained to reporters. “But I’m alright, I’m tough, I told you.”
Prescott joked that the hardest hit he took all day was from his own teammate, not from his touchdown run.
“Yeah, I mean the hardest hit was with CeeDee on the sidelines, so I’ll be fine,” Prescott added.
The video of the incident:
Dak completed 24 of his 31 passes for 296 yards and those three total TDs.
