With the NFL Draft now in the rearview mirror, the Dallas Cowboys will continue to monitor the long term health of franchise quarterback Dak Prescott.
Dallas will begin organized team activities in less than two weeks, giving everyone a chance to see how Prescott throws and, even more importantly, how he moves around.
Cowboys head coach Mike McCarthy feels that Prescott has had some solid workouts and that he should have no issues making it back to the field.
“Yeah. I have no reason not to think that,” McCarthy said on Saturday.
“I know he feels really good. He’s had some excellent workouts the last couple weeks.”
Most teams around the NFL, including the Cowboys, will begin OTAs on May 25th, and there will be plenty of injury updates from the media about Prescott and others on the team.
Still, Prescott is optimistic, especially when he considers how far he’s come in just a short time.
“That’s a feeling that’s tough to put in words,” Prescott said in late April on NFL Network.
“Six months ago, being carted off the field and knowing your season’s done. Just spending the last few months throwing the ball from a chair, to actually be out there using my own two feet and slinging it around felt good. But that was two weeks ago, and I’m well further than that, so that’s the exciting part.”
