Injured QB Dak Prescott dressed for padded Cowboys practice
Injured quarterback Dak Prescott took the practice field with the Cowboys on Thursday in Oxnard, Calif., one day after leaving a training camp session with a Grade 1 shoulder strain.
Prescott walked off the field with medical staff on Wednesday and was taken for an MRI, which revealed the mild strain in his right (throwing) shoulder.
The Dallas Morning News reported Prescott could miss multiple weeks to guarantee the strain is fully healed.
But Prescott, who celebrated his 28th birthday on Thursday, said he doesn’t think the injury is serious and plans to practice with the Cowboys during camp.
Head coach Mike McCarthy will make the final call on the practice decision, but allowed Prescott to work with the team Thursday while forbidding throwing. McCarthy said the Cowboys are planning to reassess Prescott, but he’d likely be banned from throwing for a few days.
Prescott missed the final 11 games of the 2020 season with an ankle injury that required surgery.
The two-time Pro Bowl selection signed a four-year, $160 million contract in the offseason.
