Cowboys owner Jerry Jones showed concern watching Dak Prescott rush for a touchdown late in the third quarter of Sunday’s blowout 43–3 win over the Falcons.
“I worry about it,” Jones said. “We got to realize that at the end of the year what this is about is being standing,” Jones said on his weekly radio appearance on 105.3 The Fan, via The Athletic’s Jon Machota. “Warren Buffett one time said the hardest thing about accumulating wealth is to be there to spend it.”
The Cowboys were already up 33 points in the third quarter when Prescott ran and powered past Falcons linebacker Mykal Walker and defensive lineman Anthony Rush for a four-yard score.
Cowboys executive vice president Stephen Jones also didn’t love seeing the Prescott taking a big hit in a game that long been decided, telling 105.3 The Fan on Monday, “Let’s don’t do that. But certainly, I mean, that’s Dak. At the end of the day, we have to protect Dak from Dak, but he’s the ultimate competitor.”
It was back in 2020 when Prescott suffered a season-ending leg injury which cost him 11 games.
For this season, Prescott has led one of the league’s top offenses, throwing for two touchdowns and just five interceptions. Dallas has a record of 7-2 as they enter its Week 11 contest with the Chiefs.WANT MORE FROM TOTALPROSPORTS? FOLLOW US ON GOOGLE NEWS.
