Dak Prescott has been dealing with some hand issues since last week’s loss to the Chicago Bears. It turns out the Dallas Cowboys quarterback is actually playing through an injury.
FOX broadcaster and former Dallas Cowboys QB Troy Aikman revealed in the first quarter of today’s game against the Los Angeles Rams that Prescott is playing with a “hairline fracture” in his right index finger.
Aikman and Prescott were seen talking on the field before the game.
Prescott opened the game with white tape on that finger. It’s since been taken off.
Troy Aikman just revealed on the FOX broadcast that Prescott has a hairline fracture in the tip of his pointer finger on his throwing hand.

Prescott struggled with his accuracy to open the game, perhaps due to the tape on his right index finger. He removed the tape prior to Dallas’ drive at the end of the first quarter.
The Cowboys’ quarterback downplayed the significance of his finger injury earlier in the week.
“Just a couple of bruises,” Prescott said Thursday. “I’ll probably wear the same tape in the game, but that’s that…Nothing serious.”
Dallas and Los Angeles are tied, 0-0, late in the first quarter. The game is on FOX.
