(Sports Spectrum) The last time NFL fans saw Dallas Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott, he was being carted off the field in tears after suffering a horrifying right ankle compound fracture and dislocation in a 37-34 win over the New York Giants. The injury will keep him out for at least the rest of the season.
That was Sunday. On Thursday, a smiling Prescott posted an Instagram video on his way to the doctor to see his leg for the first time since his surgery Sunday night. In the video, he thanked fans, teammates, friends and family for the overwhelming support he’s received in the last week. He said it has helped him stay motivated to recover as soon as possible.
“What’s up everyone, I just wanted everyone to know that I’m doing well,” Prescott said, “and I can’t thank you enough for all your love, your support, your prayers over the last few days. They’ve been more than overwhelming.”
