Michael Irvin is scaring the hell out of Cowboys fans with just weeks left until the games start to get real.
Dak Prescott continues to preach that he’s feeling better and that strides towards playing in Week 1 are being made, but the Dallas Cowboys’ quarterback is getting another MRI on his right shoulder strain.
Hall of fame WR Michael Irvin is extremely concerned about the health of the Cowboys QB as he explained on his podcast this week that he believes the Cowboys might be downplaying the injury.
“When I was there at camp, he was throwing the ball back to the guy that was snapping it to him with his left hand,” Irvin said.
“It only takes that little wave with the right hand to throw the ball two yards, and I was like, ‘Oh, no. Oh, no.'”
Irvin said his contacts in the Cowboys have insisted they believe it’s nothing to fret about … but The Playmaker explained he thinks that might all be a façade at the moment.
Irvin said after Dak went down last year with his ankle injury, the team went into “the gutter” … and he believes the Cowboys are now trying everything to avoid that same feeling in camp this summer.
“The worst thing in the world, right now, is to have everybody in camp saying, ‘Oh, no, we’re going to have to play this season without Dak.’ Or, ‘We’re going to have to miss a considerable amount of time without Dak.'”
Irvin added, “You don’t stay out this long with something this minor at that position when you had all of last year off.”
Prescott noted that this was the first time throughout his career that he’d ever felt soreness or tightness in his arm.
“Once I get back in the team setting, I’m not going to think about my arm,” Prescott told the media Wednesday. “It’s about progressing at the right time. It all felt good out there. Every throw I made. When they tell you stop, you don’t want to hear it, but you (stop).”
Last season, Dak was limited to four games played due to injury and passed for 1,856 yards, nine touchdowns and four interceptions. He also rushed for 93 yards and three touchdowns.
