After quarterback Dak Prescott inked a blockbuster deal with Dallas, there were questions about confidence in his rehabilitation. Suffering a gruesome ankle fracture in week 5 of the 2020 season and then signing a 4-year deal with a $ 66 million signature bonus out of season after? Why were the cowboys so sure he was returning to full health?
Thanks to good work from doctors and Cowboys training staff, Prescott is already back on the field and practicing less than 6 months removed from the injury. The Mississippi State product showed his progress in a video on Twitter.

Prescott made some awkward throws in the video, similar to the quick ones he made to Dallas’ star-studded receivers before his injury. The casts also included planting on his right leg, which further showed the confidence he has after recovery progress.

In the second video released after the workout, Prescott made some dropbacks while delivering deep throws to a receiver who worked with him. Seeing the Cowboys’ franchise quarterback back on a field and making strong throws is a sight for sore Dallas fans who still vividly remember his injury.
Prescott, who returns to 100%, is expected to be a full-go by 2021 and will look to have a comeback season to regain control of NFC East and prove he was worth the $ 160 million award.
