Dak Prescott Ankle Injury updates
“I don’t have any concern about him playing,” McCarthy stated.
McCarthy did not confirm if Prescott was undergoing the MRI during the day on Thursday. However, McCarthy he said “we checked him out. We made sure everything was good.” McCarthy stated that Prescott will be fully participating for two more days of practice and will be fully fit for gameday.
This past Thursday Prescott stated that the ankle he had surgically treated was “uncomfortable” after wearing a different type of cleat for the first time during the summer.
Prescott was in the field during part of the practice session which was open to the media, before getting into the gym. Prescott said he didn’t slip on his ankle in the course of training. He claimed he had broken with a brand fresh pair of Nike Jordan 11s following wearing the Jordan 1s all summer long during training camp. He wore Jordan 11s during matches last year, but the trainer said he would change back to Jordan 1s.
“I promise you I’m great,” Prescott said Thursday. “Just being very, very precautious. Switched shoes today, probably wasn’t the best idea. We’re good to go. Promise that.”
When asked the reason Prescott was not able to change to cleats that are more comfortable and then return to training, McCarthy said, “high caution.”
“We do it with all the players. There are always exams or things that go on. We react to everything. That’s just the nature of the game. So really, I know the importance of Dak and the quarterback position but it’s really standard procedure to go through that anytime a player has an issue.”
