Haughton Native Dak Prescott Injured in Cowboys Win Over Pats
Haughton, Louisiana native Dak Prescott had one heck of a Sunday afternoon. In a thrilling 35-29 Overtime game, Dak arguably cemented himself as a top tier quarterback in the NFL. Prescott went 36 for 51, 445 yards and three touchdowns. As Chris Berman would say, 'have yourself a game young man!'
However, despite leading his team to victory, it's not all good news for Dak. According to multiple reports, he suffered a calf injury during the game winning drive. He was spotted by ESPN's Ed Werder being helped to the locker room after the game by Cowboys' running back Zeke Elliott. Dak was also spotted in a walking boot following the game.
In a post game press conference, Dak shrugged off the injury and basically said football is a physical game, it's no big deal and that he'll be fine. And while that may be comforting for Dallas fans, the fact he's scheduled for a MRI today and a full evaluation of the injury shouldn't be. If Dak is sidelined due to the injury, it could change the trajectory of the Cowboys' strong early season push.
However, if there is a silver lining here, the Boys are on bye this week which will give Dak a bit more time to rest and recover.
