Dallas Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott put up historic numbers through the first four weeks of the 2020 NFL season, but his year was cut short on Sunday after the superstar QB suffered a devastating ankle injury against the Giants. Prescott suffered a right ankle compound fracture and dislocation, and is expected to miss up to six months.
On Wednesday, during a ride to the doctor, Prescott addressed fans and thanked everyone who has shown him support in an Instagram video. Prescott said that he’s in “great spirits,” and is looking forward to an eventual comeback.
“Just want everyone to know that I’m doing well. I can’t thank you enough for your love, your support, your prayers over the last few days, they’ve been more than overwhelming. From teammates, to family, to friends, to fans I don’t know, to former and current players around the league and players around all sports. Just wanted to say thank you, they’re definitely appreciated and received well. Just knowing that I have that much love and support out there makes a huge difference. in great spirits.
Headed to see the doctor, headed to see my leg for the first time post-surgery. So just ready to start this road to come back. This little adversity is just going to be another chapter in the book, and I’m excited to move forward and write it.
…. I’m looking forward to this football season. Seeing the game in a different perspective and supporting my teammates and those around the league that need it. And just excited, excited for God’s purpose and God’s plan. I know it’s bigger than anything that I see or that I could’ve imagined. I’m trusting him. My faith is doubled-down more than ever.”
