One week after the terrifying foot injury that knocked him out of the season, Dak Prescott got some very good news about his upcoming recovery.
According to ESPN NFL insider Adam Schefter, Dak has no post-surgical infection on his right leg. Citing a source close to Dak, the outlook as he begins his recovery has been deemed “so far, so good.”
Dak suffered a compound fracture in his right leg during last Sunday’s game against the New York Giants. Dallas Cowboys backup QB Andy Dalton led the team to a win over Big Blue, but to most Cowboys fans it was far too bittersweet.
Fortunately, the surgery on Dak’s leg went well and he is in high spirits. He’s taken to Instagram this week singing the praises of everyone showing support for him and is looking forward to his recovery.

Schefter reported that Dak was healthy enough to visit the Cowboys at their facility this past Thursday to meet with teammates and coaches. Head coach Mike McCarthy praised Dak for “the electricity that he brings to our football team” even when he isn’t under center.
If all goes well, the Dak Prescott comeback story will certainly be a top contender for Comeback Player of the Year in 2021.
We’re all rooting for Dak to make a full recovery so he can continue his stellar NFL career.
Good luck, Dak.
