An MRI revealed that the quarterback suffered a latissimus strain and could potentially miss the season opener against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Sept. 9. However, another magnetic resonance imaging gave the Cowboys good news about the health of their defender.
Prescott’s shoulder healed well and he could play during the preseason
ESPN’s Todd Archer reported that Dak Prescott’s shoulder was “healing well” and the quarterback could return to training soon.
Prescott had his third throwing session before the Cowboys ’preseason game against the Arizona Cardinals and came out of it feeling any discomfort in his shoulder. The Cowboys initially imprisoned him for two weeks to ensure he fully recovered from the strain on his shoulders.
It was just a precaution because Prescott wanted to make sure he was fully prepared ahead of the 2021 NFL season. The Cowboys star said he would have gone through the pain had he suffered shoulder strain in the regular season.
Prescott went through two throws on August 7 and 10 and felt no lingering or unexpected pain. Prescott will return to training this week and prepare for the Cowboys ’next preseason game against the Houston Texans on Aug. 29.
Prescott is gearing up for a long-awaited return
Dak Prescott is eager to prepare some pre-season action before the Cowboys travel to Raymond James Stadium to face current Super Bowl champion Tampa Bay Buccaneers in the 1st week of the 2021 NFL season.
Prescott enjoyed the 2020 star season before a horrible ankle injury in week 5 against the New York Giants ended his campaign. Despite missing 11 games, the Cowboys signed Prescott on a four-year $ 160 million extension, confirming his status as a franchise defender
With a secure future, Prescott will now seek to end the Cowboys ’25-year wait to win the Super Bowl. The Cowboys are favorites to win the NFC in the East and if Prescott can play at the level he managed last season before he suffered an injury, they could go deep into the playoffs.
