The Dallas Cowboys season took a devastating hit last Sunday when quarterback Dak Prescott suffered a season-ending compound fracture and dislocation of his right ankle. After successful surgery, Prescott is in good spirits and took to Instagram Thursday to thank the fans for their support.
Prescott did something else on Thursday, he went to the Cowboys facility in Frisco, Texas to visit his teammates, and his presence was felt by everyone in the building.
His partner in crime so to speak, Ezekiel Elliott, talked about what it was like seeing him and how it’s important to support Prescott as much as possible.
“I’m going by to see him every day…I’m going to try to see him as much as I can, if that is every day then it’s everyday…I think it’s important we surround him and show him love and involve him,” Elliott said.
Cornerback Anthony Brown made his return to the field last Sunday after being on injured reserve with a rib issue he suffered in Week 1 and had this to say about seeing Prescott.
“It was just like a breath of fresh air to see the QB here at The Star today,” Brown said. To get to touch him, talk to him, hear his voice, and see what his spirit is like. I know he’s going to fight. …He’s going to be back in no time.”
It wasn’t just the players that felt the impact of Prescott’s visit, but also the coaching staff. Mike McCarthy raved about the energy his quarterback brought to the facility.
“He’s in the building. You could see the reaction that everyone has that he’s here,” McCarthy said. “I think that speaks volumes about him as a man and the electricity that he brings to this football team.”
Even amid adversity, Prescott continues to inspire and motivate his Dallas Cowboys teammates.
