Prescott said Monday that his left, non-throwing shoulder is "fine," and he has no limitations following surgery in February, Clarence E. Hill Jr. of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports. When the surgery was reported in early March, it was termed a "clean-up" procedure, according to Michael Gehlken of The Dallas Morning News. With his health not in question for the offseason program, Prescott now can focus on getting acquainted with a revised receiving corps that lost Amari Cooper via trade to the Browns and Cedrick Wilson in free agency to the Dolphins. At this point, CeeDee Lamb is the Cowboys' unquestioned top wide receiver, followed by Michael Gallup -- who tore his ACL in Week 17 -- newcomer James Washington and Noah Brown. As for the rest of the skill positions, Prescott has holdovers Ezekiel Elliott (knee) and Tony Pollard at running back and Dalton Schultz at tight end.
Prescott (shoulder) has agreed to restructure his contract, a move that that frees up about $15 million in salary cap space for the Cowboys in advance of free agency, Rob Phillips of the team's official site reports. By converting a portion of Prescott's 2022 base salary into a signing bonus, the Cowboys gain added flexibility for free agent signings and inking the team's upcoming draft class. The QB is bouncing back from an offseason clean-up procedure on his left (non-throwing) shoulder that isn't expected to impact his ability to participate in the Cowboys' offseason workouts. Meanwhile, the 28-year-old figures to be working with a re-tooled wideout corps this coming season, with Dallas expected to part ways with Amari Cooper and both Michael Gallup (knee) and Cedrick Wilson poised to become free agents.
Prescott had an offseason "clean-up" procedure on his left (non-throwing) shoulder, Michael Gehlken of The Dallas Morning News reports. With regard to Prescott's procedure, coach Mike McCarthy noted, "It's not a concern. We have no concern. He is doing well." With that in mind, the franchise QB is expected to be a full participant in Cowboys' offseason workouts. This past season, Prescott -- who turns 29 on July 29 -- suited up for 16 games, with his only absence occurring in Week 8 when a calf injury sidelined him and led to Cooper Rush drawing a spot start for Dallas.
Prescott completed 23 of 43 passes for 254 yards and a touchdown with an interception while rushing the ball four times for 27 yards and a second TD in Sunday's 23-17 loss to the 49ers in the wild-card round. The Cowboys had a rough first half and found themselves down 23-7 heading into the fourth quarter, but Prescott led his team on two scoring drives to make things close, capping the second one with a five-yard TD run. However, the comeback fell short when he scampered for 17 yards with only 14 seconds left on the clock and no timeouts to try and set up an easier hail mary attempt, only for the clock to hit zeros before Prescott could spike it. It was a disappointing end to a promising season for Dallas, but the QB still set career highs in completion percentage (68.8 percent) and passing touchdowns (37) while compiling 4,449 passing yards over 16 games. Even if the Cowboys lose offensive coordinator Kellen Moore and make some coaching changes in the offseason, Prescott should still be set up for success in 2022.
Prescott completed 21 of 27 passes for 295 yards and five touchdowns in Saturday's 51-26 win over the Eagles. Prescott was excellent in the first half, throwing for four touchdowns for the second time in his last three games. With another passing score to begin the fourth quarter -- his last play of the night -- Prescott set a career high in the category Saturday. The signal-caller did so while continuing to incorporate Cedrick Wilson in Michael Gallup's (knee) absence, boding well for the Cowboys' offensive options in the playoffs. While Prescott now enters the postseason on a high note, he finishes the regular season with a personal-best 37 passing touchdowns in 16 appearances as well.
