Prescott recovering from offseason shoulder surgery

Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott was like a walking MASH unit last season. Coming off his catastrophic ankle dislocation in October 2020, he then strained his throwing shoulder in training camp- causing him to be shut down for the entire preseason- and then suffered a calf injury six weeks into the 2021 campaign that forced him to miss a game.

Now it’s been revealed that he also had an issue with his non-throwing shoulder, and it was bad enough that he had cleanup surgery on it after the Cowboys were ousted from the postseason.

McCarthy took to the podium at the NFL scouting combine in Indianapolis on Tuesday, speaking to reporters for the first time since the team’s playoff loss to San Francisco on January 19.

He told assembled media members that Prescott was one of several Cowboys players to undergo an offseason procedure.
