Prescott: “I’ve buried the injury” 

           Cowboys QB Dak Prescott was asked on Wednesday about the significant ankle injury he is recovering from.

“I’ve buried the injury,” Prescott said, per ESPN. “Honestly, guys, you know me, from the point of practice, from the point of just moving forward and going about my life, I’ve buried it mentally. And I think you guys and a lot of people around have to help me in burying it as well as we move forward.”

Prescott is clearly tiring of the ankle questions.

“Had a good Cinco de Mayo, was a little active and at that time maybe did some little dance moves and I felt like I’m ready to go,” Prescott said. “So that was the time that I said in my head, ‘The injury’s gone.’”

“Just knowing that I could do all the different drops, get away from pressure when I need to,” Prescott said. “I’m sure you guys see the scramble drill that we’ve done a few times. That was a big one for my confidence, just being able to pivot and turn out left, get out to the right, change directions, not feeling anything and then look at the tape and realize day by day that I’m running more smoother, I’m getting better, I’m using my legs more when I throw. Those are just all building blocks and stepping stones for me to get where I want to be. It’s just exciting.”

Prescott underwent immediate surgery Oct. 11 and required a second surgery in December to strengthen the ankle.

Prescott started the first 72 games of his career, including the postseason. He missed the final 11 games of last season. Prescott, who signed a four-year, $160 million deal with an NFL-record $126 million in guaranteed money this offseason, was leading the league in passing yards when his season ended.

The two-time Pro Bowler finished his fifth season with 1,856 yards, nine touchdowns and four interceptions in five games.

Prescott is expected to fully participate in training camp next month.
