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

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.

Cowboys' Dak Prescott: Lucrative day against Falcons
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Prescott went 34-for-47 passing with 450 yards and one passing touchdown, adding 18 yards and three touchdowns on five carries during Sunday's 40-39 win against the Falcons. He also lost a fumble on the Cowboys' second offensive possession of the game.

As if the three rushing scores did not already boost him toward a week-winning fantasy performance Sunday, Prescott's 450 passing yards were good for the third-most in his 66 career regular-season outings. Prescott's performance surely was enhanced by game script, as Dallas fell into a 29-10 halftime deficit, forcing the quarterback to put up 28 pass attempts in the third and fourth quarters in order to execute a comeback. With 716 passing yards already to his name in 2020, Prescott will next face a Seahawks defense that gave up 450 passing yards in its season debut.

Cowboys' Dak Prescott: Falls short on SNF
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Prescott completed 25 of 39 pass attempts for 266 yards and a touchdown, adding 30 yards on three rush attempts in Sunday's 20-17 loss to the Rams.

Prescott was having a steady night against a tough Rams defense, coming a questionable offensive pass interference call away from potentially tying or taking the lead late in the fourth quarter. Overall, it appears that new head coach Mike McCarthy is more willing to take risks with his play calling, which could result in bigger fantasy totals (at the expense of efficiency) for his QB. The addition of 17th overall pick CeeDee Lamb (five catches for 59 yards) to Amari Cooper, Michael Gallup and Ezekiel Elliott gives Prescott the best supporting cast he has ever had as a pro. Prescott gets a much softer matchup against the Falcons defense Week 2, so we may see the full potential of the Cowboys offense unleashed.

Cowboys' Dak Prescott: Will play under franchise tag
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Prescott will play under the Cowboys' franchise tag during the 2020 season after failing to reach a long-term extension with the team prior to Wednesday's deadline.

Prescott is now slated to earn $31.4 million in 2020 after signing the franchise tender back in late June, per Todd Archer of The two sides won't be able to open up extension talks until after the coming season, and it's possible that Prescott could play under the franchise tag again in 2021. In any case, the 26-year-old -- who logged a career high 4,902 passing yards in 2019 -- will continue to helm a Dallas offense that also features a strong wideout nucleus featuring Amari Cooper, Michael Gallup and first-round draft pick CeeDee Lamb, as well as a top-tier running back in Ezekiel Elliott.

Cowboys' Dak Prescott: Given final offer ahead of deadline
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Cowboys extended a final offer for a long-term contract to Prescott on Tuesday, Jane Slater of NFL Network reports.

Prescott and the Cowboys only have until the July 15 deadline this Wednesday to come to terms on a potential extension, otherwise the signal-caller will be locked into the $31.4 million franchise tag he signed last month. The deal on the table reportedly includes between $33-35 million annually with over $100 million in total guarantees, terms reminiscent of the offer Dallas was rumored to have made Prescott back in March. Slater notes that the Cowboys presented the current offer despite the fact that the team hasn't had any recent discussions with Prescott, a hint that the two sides still aren't close to agreeing to terms on a multi-year deal.

Cowboys' Dak Prescott: Extension talks not close
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Prescott and the Cowboys aren't close to agreeing on a long-term deal ahead of the July 15 deadline, Calvin Watkins of The Dallas Morning News reports.

Prescott signed his $31.4 million franchise tag last month, which obligates him to show up for the start of training camp even if a long-term deal isn't reached by the looming deadline. The Cowboys have reportedly attempted to negotiate a five-year contract with Prescott, while the soon-to-be 27-year-old signal-caller has pursued a shorter deal for four years which would allow him to hit free agency sooner. The two sides now have just a handful of days to come to terms on a multi-year agreement before the franchise tag gets locked in, though Watkins notes that the "situation could change."

Cowboys' Dak Prescott: Signs franchise tag
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Prescott signed his franchise tag from the Cowboys on Monday, David Helman of the team's official site reports.

The Cowboys extended the exclusive version of the tag, which gave Prescott no chance to talk with other organizations as a bargaining tool. With that figure at $31.4 million for the 2020 season, his representatives have until July 15 to reach agreement on a contract extension, but those talks have stalled as the Cowboys are aiming to lock Prescott into a five-year deal, while the quarterback is seeking four more years. In any case, Prescott now is obligated to report for the start of training camp.

Cowboys' Dak Prescott: Plans to sign franchise tender
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Prescott intends to sign his $31.4 million franchise tender with the Cowboys by Monday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

The two sides still have until July 15 to agree to an extension, but signing the tender means Prescott will be contractually obligated to report for the start of training camp, ending any potential of a holdout. The 26-year-old has been in communication with new coach Mike McCarthy despite not participating in the team's offseason program, but due to the offseason restrictions from COVID-19, he hasn't missed any on-field activities.

Cowboys' Dak Prescott: In touch with new coach
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Prescott has been in contact with new Cowboys coach Mike McCarthy even though he has yet to sign his franchise tag offer or agree to a contract extension, Jonny Auping of reports. "There has been communication," McCarthy confirmed. "This is the way these business situations go sometimes and [I] respect that. I have confidence that it will work out."

Under normal circumstances, Prescott being in contract limbo would have prevented him from participating in on-field activities with his teammates, but at the moment all he's missing are some virtual meetings. The fact that he's stayed in touch with McCarthy suggests the quarterback won't be behind in understanding any new wrinkles being added to the offensive scheme once in-person team activities are allowed to ramp up. Prescott and the Cowboys have until July 15 to work out an extension, a move that would free up additional cap space for the team -- otherwise he'll play out the 2020 season under the franchise tag at a salary of $31.4 million.

Cowboys' Dak Prescott: Contract length at issue
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Cowboys' latest contract offer to Prescott would reportedly make him the highest-paid player in the NFL, but the two sides have so far been unable to agree on the length of the deal, per Clarence Hill Jr. of the Star-Telegram.

The parameters currently being discussed would match the $35 million a season Russell Wilson is making. However, while the Cowboys want the contract to run for at least five years to give them more roster stability and spread out the salary cap hit, Prescott's camp is asking for a four-year deal, presumably on the assumption the market for his services is only going to become more favorable. With a July 15 deadline to get the QB under contract inching closer, expect the impasse to be broken sooner or later, although Jerry Jones has made a career out of waiting until the last minute to really ramp up negotiations. Until an agreement is reached, though, Prescott is choosing not to participate in the team's virtual offseason program.

Cowboys' Dak Prescott: Gets official tag salary
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Prescott's franchise tag number has been recalculated to $31.4 million, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Reports on the value of the tag have been all over the place, and we finally get an official number now that the signing period for restricted free agents has ended. The Cowboys would've been looking at a smaller salary if they'd used the non-exclusive option instead of the exclusive tag, but that would've allowed Prescott to sign an offer sheet with another team, whereas the exclusive tag is exactly what it sounds like. The two sides have until July 15 to reach agreement on a long-term contract, with recent reports suggesting progress has been made.
