What happened to The Dallas Cowboys?
Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said he’s been informed by his medical team that quarterback Dak Prescott suffered a torn ACL during Sunday’s game against the Seattle Seahawks.
The injury is the second of Prescott’s career and the second to be sustained in two games, joining the season opener against the Washington Redskins on Oct. 17, when he suffered a season-ending knee injury.
Jones said Prescott will undergo surgery on his ACL and MCL and that he expects to be out for several weeks.
“The injury we feel that he had, it’s an MCL tear.
That’s the diagnosis,” Jones said.
“I feel like he’ll be out two weeks.
The recovery from it, it takes some time.
I just feel like the ACL is not completely torn and he’s not going to be able to do anything, so I think he’ll have to get a full MRI tomorrow.”
Jones did not say whether Prescott would need surgery on the MCL or ACL, but he noted that the Cowboys have been trying to reduce the workload of Prescott on the field since his injury.
