Cowboys' Dak Prescott: Should be full-go at training camp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach Mike McCarthy indicated Tuesday that he anticipates Prescott (ankle) being full-go by the time training camp rolls around, Todd Archer of ESPN.com reports.

Considering Prescott was nearly full-go for OTAs, it shouldn't come as a shock that he'll likely be ready to resume his duties under center next month. He didn't get a ton of time to get acclimated to McCarthy's system last year before going down for the season with a compound fracture in his right ankle, but he did complete 68 percent of his 222 pass attempts for 1,856 yards, nine touchdowns and four interceptions over four-plus games, including 450-plus passing yards in each of the three games prior to going down. Prescott returns to the head of a Cowboys offense loaded with wideout talent, so there's no reason to expect a drop-off from him as long as he can stay on the field.

Cowboys' Dak Prescott: No issues in OTAs
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Prescott didn't take part in full team drills during Tuesday's OTA session, but his ankle didn't appear to be an issue during individual and 7-on-7 drills, Jon Machota of The Athletic reports. "I'm pretty much a full-go," Prescott said after the workout. "I'm not being limited or restricted to doing anything. I'm ready to go. I don't know as far as being tackled or my ankle being jerked and stuff under a pile, obviously we're not there yet. But we're far from being there, so I'm good to go, really."

Per coach Mike McCarthy, the quarterback is "ahead of schedule" in his recovery from last year's ankle surgery. Prescott won't see any contact until training camp, but he's on track to be a full participant once it begins in July.

Cowboys' Dak Prescott: On track for training camp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach Mike McCarthy said Prescott (ankle) is expected to be cleared in time for training camp in July, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

The 27-year-old was given a 4-to-6 month recovery timeline after undergoing surgery to address the compound fracture and dislocation of his right ankle in October, and he also underwent a second cleanup procedure in December. Prescott reached a new deal with the Cowboys in March that includes $126 million guaranteed, and the team remains optimistic about his recovery as it begins on-field work in the offseason program.

Cowboys' Dak Prescott: Continues to progress with recovery
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach Mike McCarthy said Prescott is making progress in his recovery from a season-ending right ankle injury, Rob Phillips of the Cowboys' official site reports. "He's throwing now, doing footwork drills. He's made a lot of progress," McCarthy noted.

When he suffered the compound fracture and dislocation in Week 5 of last season, Prescott was leading the NFL in passing with 1,856 passing yards to go with nine touchdowns and four interceptions. After surgery was performed that same day, he entered the rehab process, which included a second procedure in December, walking on an anti-gravity treadmill and in a pool, and beginning the aforementioned footwork drills in April. The Cowboys are aiming for Prescott to be healthy and ready for training camp.

Cowboys' Dak Prescott: Gets $126 million guaranteed
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Cowboys and Prescott (ankle) agreed to a four-year, $160 million contract, which includes $126 million guaranteed, Mike Garafolo of NFL Network reports.

Among the terms of the deal, Prescott received a record-setting $66 million signing bonus and will earn $75 million in 2021, Schefter notes. Schefter added that the Cowboys will place the franchise tag on Prescott on Tuesday, which is a procedural move so they can't use the tag on the quarterback again in the future. With his home for the next four campaigns known, Prescott will resume his recovery from a season-ending ankle injury with an aim toward being healthy for training camp.

Cowboys' Dak Prescott: Reaches agreement on new deal
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Cowboys and Prescott (ankle) reached an agreement on a new contract Monday, Mike Garafolo of NFL Network reports.

The terms of the deal have not been revealed, but Prescott is destined to avoid the franchise tag for a second straight season and instead will remain in Dallas for the long term. He's in the midst of his recovery from a brutal season-ending from Week 5 of the last campaign, but there's an expectation that he'll be healthy enough to take the field by training camp.

Cowboys' Dak Prescott: On track for training camp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Prescott underwent a second ankle surgery in December but is expected to be ready for training camp in late July, Calvin Watkins of The Dallas Morning News reports.

The second ankle surgery wasn't considered a setback. Instead, the procedure strengthened his right ankle following October surgery that repaired a compound fracture and dislocation. The 27-year-old quarterback remains on track for camp, but it's uncertain whether he'll be back with the Cowboys. Prescott will earn $37.6 million if he plays under the franchise tag for a second straight season, but he'd like the security of a long-term contract, specifically a four-year deal to allow for another contract while he's in his prime. The Cowboys still are an ideal situation for Prescott, as the team features an elite arsenal of offensive weapons, including Ezekiel Elliott, Amari Cooper, Michael Gallup and CeeDee Lamb.

Cowboys' Dak Prescott: Making impressive recovery progress
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Prescott (ankle) is making impressive progress in his recovery and is expected to be in the Cowboys' plans for the 2021 season, Adam Maya of NFL.com reports.

Prescott has been walking on an anti-gravity treadmill and in a pool, and the Cowboys believe he can come back at 100 percent in 2021. In turn, the Cowboys are actively working toward a long-term deal with Prescott after the quarterback played on the franchise tag in 2020. Owner Jerry Jones even said that Prescott has increased leverage now because of how well he played before suffering the devastating ankle injury in Week 5. Through the first four games, Prescott posted 1,690 passing yards, nine touchdowns and three interceptions, adding 86 rushing yards and three scores. If Prescott truly comes back at full speed and is retained in Dallas, the team will immediately be ready to make a playoff push in 2021 with mainstays Ezekiel Elliott, Amari Cooper (lower leg), Michael Gallup and CeeDee Lamb in the fold.

Cowboys' Dak Prescott: Contract negotiations can resume
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Getting Prescott signed to a long-term deal is the Cowboys' top offseason priority, according to executive vice president Stephen Jones, Mike Fisher of Sports Illustrated reports.

"(It's) certainly at the top" of the team's to-do list, Jones said Monday on 105.3 The Fan. With the Cowboys' season officially over after Sunday's loss to the Giants, negotiations on a long-term contract can resume at any time, and both Stephen and his father, owner/GM Jerry Jones, have repeatedly insisted Prescott is their quarterback of the future. That said, the QB played last season under the franchise tag because the two sides couldn't agree on the length of a new deal, as Prescott and his camp wanted one that made him a free agent a year sooner than what Dallas was offering. Prior to his season-ending ankle injury Week 5, the 27-year-old was only improving his bargaining position with an explosive start to the campaign that had him on pace for nearly 6,000 passing yards. Assuming Prescott is a Cowboy again in 2021, he should have all the key pieces of the offense back around him -- including offensive coordinator Kellen Moore, who received an extension of his own over the weekend -- and the only thing standing between Prescott and another huge statistical season might be improvement from a Dallas defense that was among the worst units in the NFL in 2020.

Cowboys' Dak Prescott: Recovering ahead of schedule
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cowboys executive vice president Stephen Jones said Monday that Prescott (ankle) is progressing ahead of schedule in his recovery from surgery to repair his fractured ankle, Clarence E. Hill Jr. of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports.

Prescott isn't a candidate to return this season, but it's certainly good news to see that the 27-year-old's recovery is progressing quickly and without any setbacks. The Cowboys previously expressed optimism that Prescott, who began 2020 on a record-setting pace through five contests, will be able to participate in offseason workouts as early as late April. Jones also rejected the notion that the Cowboys could entertain drafting a quarterback in 2021 even if presented with a top-three pick, per Hill, saying, "Prescott is our quarterback and we are fired up about our future with him." Dallas will have the option of assigning a $37.7 million franchise tag to Prescott for 2021 if he and the team can't agree on a long-term deal.

Cowboys' Dak Prescott: Officially moves to IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Cowboys placed Prescott (ankle) on injured reserve Monday, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports.

Prescott's spot on the 53-man roster will be taken up by Leighton Vander Esch (collarbone). The star quarterback is set to remain on IR to conclude the 2020 season due to the compound fracture and dislocation in his right ankle, but the Cowboys are hopeful he'll be ready to participate in offseason workouts as early as late April. Team owner Jerry Jones has suggested that he envisions Dallas retaining Prescott, though it remains to be seen whether a long-term deal will be negotiated. The Cowboys also will have the ability to assign the franchise tag on Prescott for a second consecutive year, but such a move would raise his salary to $37.7 million.

Cowboys' Dak Prescott: Should be ready for offseason work
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said Tuesday that he expects Prescott (ankle) will be ready to join the team for offseason workouts in late April or early May, David Helman of the Cowboys' official site reports.

A spring return to full activities essentially aligns with the 4-to-6-month recovery timeline Prescott received Monday after undergoing surgery to address the season-ending right ankle compound fracture and dislocation he suffered in the Week 5 win over the Giants. Even if his recovery proceeds as planned, the quarterback may be reluctant to report for workouts until his contract situation is resolved. Prescott, who is playing under a $31.4 million franchise tag in 2020, could be tagged again in 2021 if he and the Cowboys aren't able to come to terms on a long-term deal, although his salary on a second tag would rise to $37.7 million. Jones has suggested that he's interested in retaining Prescott, though Jones noted Tuesday that he would like the coaching staff to be more judicious in how the quarterback is used as a runner coming off the major injury, according to Todd Archer of ESPN.com.

Cowboys' Dak Prescott: Expects 4-to-6 month recovery
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Prescott (ankle) received a 4-to-6-month recovery window after undergoing surgery Sunday, Jane Slater of NFL Network reports.

Prescott, who was released from the hospital Monday, will miss the remainder of the season after suffering a right ankle compound fracture and dislocation in Sunday's 37-34 win over the Giants. Over five games in 2020, the 27-year-old compiled 1,856 passing yards and a 9:4 TD:INT, in addition to three rushing scores and a receiving touchdown. He'll now hand the reins of the offense over to Andy Dalton. Prescott's anticipated rehab window hints at optimism that he could return for 2021 without major complications, though he doesn't have a contract with the Cowboys beyond this season.

Cowboys' Dak Prescott: Surgery deemed successful
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Prescott has undergone successful surgery to address his right ankle compound fracture and dislocation Sunday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

Prescott had to undergo same-day surgery after suffering a devastating ankle injury against the Giants, and he'll now set his sights on what stands to be a long road to recovery. Given the severity of his injury, the Cowboys are expected to place Prescott on injured reserve in the near future while turning to Andy Dalton under center for the rest of the year. Prescott doesn't currently have a contract with Dallas beyond the 2020 season.

Cowboys' Dak Prescott: Likely done for the year
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Prescott is expected to miss the remainder of the season due to a severe ankle injury sustained during Sunday's 37-34 win over the Giants, Michael Gehlken of The Dallas Morning News reports.

Prescott had to be transported to a local Arlington hospital after suffering a right ankle compound fracture and dislocation Sunday, and he'll now undergo what is expected to be season-ending surgery to address the injury. The 27-year-old's 2020 campaign will come to an end with 1,856 passing yards, nine touchdowns and four interceptions, a 16-game pace which would have put him on track to set multiple records. He also caught one touchdown versus the Giants. In Prescott's stead, Andy Dalton will step up under center and lead the Cowboys' passing attack for the rest of the year.

Cowboys' Dak Prescott: Undergoing ankle surgery
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Prescott will undergo surgery on his right ankle Sunday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

Prescott suffered what the Cowboys have termed a "serious right ankle injury" during Sunday's game against the Giants, as he had his leg twisted up while being tackled. The star quarterback had to be carted off the field and was immediately transported to a local Arlington hospital, where he'll undergo surgery. Andy Dalton will slot into the starting lineup for Dallas as long as Prescott remains out.

Cowboys' Dak Prescott: Taken to hospital for evaluation
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Prescott will be taken to a local hospital for evaluation after suffering a brutal ankle injury during Sunday's game against the Giants, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

Prescott was carted off the field during the third quarter of Sunday's contest when he suffered what the Cowboys have termed a "serious right ankle injury" while being tackled, as Calvin Watkins of The Dallas Morning News reports. The Cowboys will rely on Andy Dalton under center for the remainder of Sunday's divisional match, and possibly for the foreseeable future, given the apparent severity of Prescott's injury.

Cowboys' Dak Prescott: Suffers gruesome injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Prescott was carted off the field during Sunday's game against the Giants after his lower right leg was bent awkwardly at the end of a tackle, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

Considering the concern from both sidelines, Prescott seems poised to miss significant time with this injury. He'll end his day 14-for-21 passing for 166 yards and one interception, two carries for seven yards and an 11-yard touchdown grab on a trick play. Andy Dalton will take over for Prescott under center.

Cowboys' Dak Prescott: Tops 500-yard mark vs. Browns
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Prescott completed 41 of 58 pass attempts for 502 yards, four touchdowns and one interception Sunday against the Browns. He also carried two times for 12 yards in the 49-38 loss to the Browns, and was involved in three two-point conversions -- two passing, and one he ran in himself.

Prescott set a new career best in passing yardage as he attempted to help his team battle back from yet another deficit. He connected for two touchdowns with CeeDee Lamb while adding scores to Amari Cooper and Dalton Schultz as well. Unfortunately, Prescott's lone interception on the day came in the final minutes as Dallas looked to draw near after closing a significant gap, sealing another disappointing outcome. Prescott's tendency to play from behind has been a huge boon to his fantasy value thus far, as he's on pace for an unsustainable 6,760 yards and 36 touchdowns through a quarter of a season. Next Sunday's game script against the Giants could be slightly different, but Prescott should still be considered a top fantasy option for that contest.

Cowboys' Dak Prescott: Huge numbers in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Prescott completed 37 of 57 passes for 472 yards and three touchdowns with two interceptions in Sunday's 38-31 loss to the Seahawks.

The showdown against Russell Wilson didn't disappoint as Prescott become only the second quarterback in NFL history to throw for at least 450 yards in back-to-back games. However, this time around his efforts didn't result in a comeback win as his desperation heave into the end zone in the final seconds was intercepted by Ryan Neal. Prescott will look to stay hot in Week 4 against a Browns defense that's already been lit up by Lamar Jackson and rookie Joe Burrow this season.
