Dak Prescott is a week away from playing for the first time since the Cowboys star quarterback suffered a terrible ankle injury nearly 11 months ago.
He has had little training time and no activity in preseason games to aid his recovery.
Despite this, he wants to face Tom Brady and the Super Bowl champions, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
“I’m definitely ready,” Prescott said Friday. “I’ve worked very hard to get to this point. Whether it’s been months, rehabilitating my ankle, until the last (weeks) keeping my feet working while resting my arm.”
Prescott He was beginning to push his twice surgically repaired ankle to the limit when he suffered a strained right shoulder in the early days of training camp in California.
He had to settle for mental replay of plays alongside his offense for a month, before he was allowed to pitch hard again last week.
Now the Cowboys say there are no limits to the Offensive Rookie of the Year in 2016 and as the team prepares for its routine in the week leading up to the season opener on Sept. 9 in Tampa.
“You have to give him credit for the work process he’s had. It’s not like he sat in the back and did nothing while he wasn’t pitching. He stayed on top of his footwork. His conditioning couldn’t be better.” said coach Mike McCarthy.
Prescott He doesn’t know if throwing the ball so hard while recovering from a compound ankle fracture and dislocation led to shoulder problems early in training camp.
Despite this, when he was cleared to throw hard again, Dak did not bother to limit the speed or frequency of his passes.
“I think that’s how I play the sport,” Prescott said. “I just want to be on the field and seize the moment, throwing passes, without thinking about it. Just make the plays that have to be executed.”
“So after two days and realizing that there were no effects and that I was not in pain, I have stuck to the plan and it is working out well. Yes, from the shoulder, to the leg and to my mind, I am ready to play! ! “.
Days away from returning to play again, Prescott It does not mean that he has had a nightmare in the last 10 months since he left in the car of misfortune, crying, after his ankle injury. But he says that time did not stand still.
