Dak Prescott suffers small setback at camp
OXNARD, California (KLTV) - Dallas Cowboys quarterback suffered a small setback on Wednesday as he looks to return to the field after his serious ankle injury last season.
Prescott only went through a few plays in pads on Wednesday before being pulled due to shoulder soreness. According to the Cowboys an MRI was ordered and Prescott has a muscle strain in his right shoulder.
“I felt some soreness when making certain throws today, and I really just decided not to push things too far,” Prescott told the teams website. “Better to be cautious and smart about it. I don’t see this as any kind of serious setback. We’ll treat it on a daily basis, and I’ll be fine.”
The team will take the injury day to day. Garrett Gilbert stepped up after Prescott left camp. The team also has Ben DiNucci and Cooper Rush on the roster.
If this setback can go away and be an afterthought that would be great for owner Jerry Jones. Jones has been very hopeful to end the 26 year drought of not winning a Super Bowl. There is no reason to not believe, even if it is just a small belief, that a healthy Cowboys team can compete for a title.
“I would right now, if I could and I knew I had a good chance to do it I do anything known to man to get into a Super Bowl,” Jones said. “That’s a fact”
Critics and many of them are Cowboys fans say Jones is always meddling, and he should let someone else be the team’s general manager.
“I’ve had a lot of people tell me that I am naïve,” Jones said. “Well, it’s a beautiful world. It’s a better world to be naïve then to be skeptical and be negative all the time. And so, I do my best work I think when is more positive.”
