Cowboys QB Prescott on Ankle: "I’ve buried the injury"


DALLAS (105.3 The Fan) - Coming off of a season-ending ankle injury he suffered in week 5 against the New York Giants, Dallas Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott has made a tremendous amount of progress in his recovery.

Just 24 hours after the Cowboys announced that Prescott would be 100-percent free of any limitations, and would be a full go for workouts, Prescott updated the status of that recovery to the media on Wednesday. and how he has completely moved on from any mental concerns.

“I’ve buried the injury honestly guys," Prescott said. "You know me, from the point of practice, from the point of just moving forward and going about my life. I’ve buried it mentally, and I think you guys and a lot of people around have to help me in burying it as well as we move forward.”

Prescott also talked about his rehab, and how was able to move past the concerns of the injury from a mental stand point.

“The first surgery I got out of my boot probably like a week, and then I was having another surgery,” Prescott said. “Then, after that, I really like said, ‘Hell with the time,’ to be honest with you. Didn’t keep account of day by day or week by week and just started going more off how my body felt and just the things I was able to do from one day to another. I think that’s what got me through it honestly. I wasn’t counting months. I think it was just the other day that I had to count on my fingers the time since I’ve been hurt. I haven’t really kept up with that. That was one of my goals and missions when I first got hurt is I said, ‘I’m not going to try to beat anybody’s timeline. I’m just going to go out here and work day by day and just try to get myself better,’ because I knew the amount of time I had before I actually needed to be ready for the season.”
