Football fans everywhere were heartbroken as word spread of Dak Prescott’s gruesome injury.

In the third quarter of the Dallas-New York game, Prescott had picked up a solid gain on the ground when his ankle was visibly injured as he was brought down. The Mississippi State great’s right foot and ankle were caught under the Giants defender, causing the ankle to bend in an unnatural way.
