Dak Prescott suffered a thumb injury within the Dallas Cowboys’ loss to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Sunday and is anticipated to be out for a number of weeks.
It would be the second time in his profession that Prescott will miss vital time as he suffered a grotesque ankle damage through the 2020 season. After the 19-3 loss, Prescott addressed reporters with a solid on his proper hand. He was identified with a fractured right thumb.
“Yeah, it’s very disappointing, but injuries happen. Can’t necessarily control it. Just unfortunate. I’m obviously going to miss some time, not be there for my team. That’s what hurts more than anything, especially after the start that we just put out there,” Prescott mentioned, by way of Pro Football Talk.
“I wanted to be able to respond and not necessarily having that opportunity for several weeks. Yeah, it’s unfortunate, but I’ll do what I’ve always done anytime adversity comes. Take it on head first, and I’ll give my best, and I’m sure I’ll come out of this better.”
Cowboys proprietor Jerry Jones mentioned the damage was not season-ending, however he’ll miss a couple of video games.
Prescott mentioned he thought he “jammed” the thumb when he suffered the damage with about 6 minutes remaining within the sport.
“I mean, I’ve hit on however many bodies, a lot in my career, and never really had anything [except] maybe a jammed finger, and I actually thought that’s what it was,” he mentioned. “The next play I realized I couldn’t grip the ball, let the sideline know. Then, when I got off, I told the trainers the same thing. I said, ‘I can’t grip it. I feel like if you yank it, I’ll be OK,’ and I came in and got X-rays and things were different.”
Dallas was dealing with offensive line points all evening. The Cowboys misplaced Tyron Smith in coaching camp and moved rookie Tyler Smith from guard to sort out forward of the opener.
