Dak Prescott focused on being ready for next season: ‘I know my team needs me’
Dak Prescott’s season ended before it could really get started, as he was forced to undergo surgery after suffering a compound fracture and dislocation to his right ankle during the Cowboys’ Week 5 matchup against the New York Giants. Now, the quarterback is focused on getting ready for next season and he says that he is motivated by being there for his Dallas teammates.
“Each and every day, when I wake up and I go in for rehab, it’s about, for me, seeing my leg or seeing my body do something that it didn’t do the day before or creating a feeling that I didn’t have the day before — so I know that I’m continuing to get better,” Prescott said. “And at the end of the day, I know my team needs me. I know that they need me now for support but they’ll need me again later, so it’s about helping them, whichever way that I can and however I can.”
