Cowboys' Stephen Jones: Dak Prescott Is Still 'Our Future'
Oct 15 2020
The boxscore on Sunday indicates that Dallas won a divisional game against the New York Giants, but they lost everything when starting QB Dak Prescott went down with a nasty ankle injury that will cost him his 2020 season.
Prescott signed a 1-year guaranteed deal worth $31.4 million although critics believe he's better than that.
Prescott sustained a compound fracture and dislocation that required surgery at a hospital Sunday night.
Dallas is still committed to Prescott as their long-term signal-caller and on-field leader, according to Jerry and Stephen Jones.
"Physically, I'm told by the doctors by our own experience of seeing this injury, physically there should be no problem with him being back out there in early May or April", Jones said.
Kingsbury said his team will use "a rotation of guys" to replace Jones, who has recorded double-digit sack totals in each of the previous five seasons. However, Cowboys owner Jerry Jones voiced his support for the young quarterback, saying that he still sees Prescott as an essential part of the team moving forward.
"He's our future. He's special".
The Cowboys said surgery to fix the injury was complete and Prescott was expected to leave hospital later on Monday. "If anyone can overcome this, it will be Dak".
Prescott was carted off the field while in clear agony, with tears running down his face as he waved goodbye to the crowd for the final time this season.
