Dak Prescott injury: NFL world reacts to Dallas QB's nightmare
The NFL community has tried to rally around Dak Prescott following his brutal injury.
The former Mississippi State quarterback and star for the Dallas Cowboys sustained what appeared to be a serious injury during the third quarter against the New York Giants. After picking up some yardage with his feet, Prescott was tackled with his leg pinned awkwardly under a defender. A teary-eyed Prescott was carted off the field following the injury.
According to the CBS broadcast, the injury is being classified as an ankle injury with Prescott reportedly being transported to the hospital for further evaluation. It truly is a nightmare injury for one of the bright stars in the NFL and by all accounts a great human being.
Following the injury, many current stars and analysts took to Twitter to offer their thoughts, prayers, and encouragements to Prescott:
Big time Prayers up man @dak !!!!

If Dak’s your guy check on him. Be there for him. He has had one hell of a year, & has already been going through it. He needs his people to step up and be there. Y’all do that man. Y’all be where you’re supposed to be, & where y’all are needed. Lift him up! Blessings @Dak 🙏🏾

The opposite has been said, but this moment, Dak Prescott, the epitome, and the embodiment of leadership. You don’t cry over things you don’t care about immensely.
