Dak Prescott in protective boot after suffering calf strain: 'I'll be fine'

By , Audacy Sports

If you had just tweaked an ankle, or pulled a muscle, or strained a calf after throwing a 35-yard game-winning touchdown in overtime, you probably would have way too much adrenaline coursing through your body to realize the minor injury that had occurred. And that seems to be exactly the case for Dallas Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott, whose dime to CeeDee Lamb sunk the Patriots and advanced the Cowboys to a 5-1 start.

However, there's understandably concern when you see said quarterback in a protective walking boot or walking with a limp after the play, so Prescott put everyone's mind at ease in the postgame press conference.

"Surprise," Prescott said as he entered the presser, to some nervous laughter (via Patrik Walker). "Came down funny [on the last throw]. I'll be fine. I promise you that... Life keeps throwing punches, I'm gonna keep throwing them back."

Of the boot, Prescott said that he's "just giving reporters something to write about during the bye" — with another grin — and added that he would have been able to keep playing on his injured calf had the game gone on any longer.

Prior to the presser, as Prescott walked to the locker room, he was assisted by running back Ezekiel Elliott.

The Cowboys have a bye in Week 7 and will retake the field on Halloween night on the road against the Minnesota Vikings.
