Dak Prescott shares positive update on social media following season-ending ankle surgery
It’s been a tough week for Dak Prescott, as the Dallas Cowboys quarterback suffered a right ankle injury in a game against the New York Giants this past Sunday, then underwent season-ending surgery.
On Thursday, the former Mississippi State quarterback took to Instagram to offer an update on how he is doing several days removed from the procedure.
“What’s up everyone, I just want everyone to know that I’m doing well,” Prescott said in his Instagram video. “I can’t thank you enough for all your love, your support, your prayers over the last few days, they’ve been more than overwhelming. From teammates to family to friends to fans I don’t know to former and current players around the league and players around all sports. I just wanted to say thank you, they’re definitely appreciated and received well, so just knowing I have that much love and support out there makes a huge difference.”
Prescott shared that he was on his way to meet with his doctor to see his leg for the first time since the surgery.
“This little adversity is just going to be another chapter in the book,” Prescott said. “I’m excited to move forward and write it. Just once again, I can’t thank you all enough for your love and your support through it all. But I’m in great spirits, I’m going to stay that way. I’m looking forward to this football season, seeing the game in a different perspective and supporting my teammates and those around the league that need it.”
