Dak Prescott shares details of his gruesome injury, says he tried to reset his dislocated ankle himself
How tough is Dak Prescott?
The man tried to reset his fractured and dislocated ankle just so he could walk off the field himself after suffering his devastating injury last fall.
It doesn’t get much tougher than that.
“I thought it was just rolled, and as I grabbed it and did that I just was like, ‘I need to get off the field.’ I was trying to set it back myself. I was trying to hit it into the ground,” Prescott says in the clip below. “I don’t know, I was trying to get off the field, and I knew it wasn’t straight. So I wanted to do that so I could get up and when I couldn’t that’s when I just waved [to the sideline], ‘I can’t do this myself.’ They came over, they put it back in place and that was a relief, right? You can imagine the pain it was in and then it gets reset.”
Of course, Prescott was unable to pull that off and had to be carted off the field last season after suffering the season-ending injury against the Giants.
In a recent interview with ESPN’s Sage Steele, the franchise quarterback for the Dallas Cowboys detailed his memories of his attempt to walk off the field that day.
I love how Dak Prescott’s late mother is ALWAYS with him. That’s why @dak was at the top of my “wish list” for my new show. I learned so much about him during our convo & hope you do too. “Up Close with Sage Steele” streaming NOW on @ESPNPlus Thank you, Dak 🙏🏽 @dallascowboys pic.twitter.com/uyl4IOTVz4
