Dak is an American football quarterback for the Dallas Cowboys of the National Football League. He played college football at Mississippi State and was selected by the Cowboys in the fourth round of the 2016 NFL Draft. Prescott recently revealed he will likely undergo surgery on his right thumb after suffering an injury during Sunday night’s 19-3 loss to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

According to a number of sources, he will likely be placed on injured reserve after missing 6 to 8 weeks due to the injury. During a pass attempt in the fourth quarter, Prescott collided with outside linebacker Shaq Barrett’s hand and sustained an injury. Adam Schefter also made the announcement on Facebook.

A timeline from overnight: Cowboys’ QB Dak Prescott is scheduled to have surgery on his right thumb today and is expected to miss 6-8 weeks, multiple sources told ESPN’s Todd Archer.

Prescott will consult with the Cowboys’ hand specialist today, but many sources indicate that he will first have a pin and plate put in to stabilize the joint. The Cowboys will start Cooper Rush at quarterback against the Cincinnati Bengals the following week. The team’s third quarterback, Will Grier, is presently a member of the practice squad.


When Prescott was sidelined with a right calf strain last season, Rush started and won his first game. After taking over for Prescott against Tampa Bay, he completed 7 of 13 throws for 64 yards. In the 20-16 victory over the Vikings, he completed two touchdown passes and threw for 325 yards. We wish Dak Prescott a speedy recovery. Check out the post below.
