McCarthy not worried about Prescott’s condition for Sunday

Dallas Cowboys starting quarterback Dak Prescott appeared on the team’s injury report on Thursday because of an ankle problem that has limited him in practice.

A starting quarterback that appeared on injury reports at the weekend, just before the season’s opening day, is sure to cause a bit of anxiety in the Cowboy fan base.

But on Friday, head coach Mike McCarthy reassured everyone that it was mostly precautionary and he wasn’t worried about Prescott being available for Sunday night’s game against Tom Brady and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

“He will be fully engaged today,” McCarthy said on Friday, via Dallas Morning News. “I predict he will be tomorrow so I don’t have any worries for Sunday.”

The Cowboys have some pretty significant question marks about their offense this season after trading Amari Cooper in the off-season and then losing their left start to Tyron Smith to injury. Add to that the uncertainty of going back to Ezekiell Elliott and Tony Pollard’s split times and a lot of it will fall on Prescott to keep the machine running.

Prescott will have a fantastic season for the Cowboys in 2021, throwing 4,449 yards, 37 touchdowns and just 10 interceptions to give the team a 12-5 record lead and the NFC East Division title.
