Cowboys' Stephen Jones: Dak Prescott Is Still 'Our Future'

Share

When Dak Prescott left the field for the final time in 2020 due to his brutal ankle injury, he was in tears as he knew he wouldn't be suiting up again for the team this season. The 27-year old turned down an extension over the summer that would have paid him $30 million annually with the aim of earning a more lucrative deal after the season in the $40 million range. A right ankle compound fracture and dislocation leaves Prescott with a lengthy rehab process and Dallas without its unquestioned leader.

Jones warned Tuesday that he wants to see Dallas coaches put less of an emphasis on Prescott running the ball once the quarterback returns, arguing that leaning on it too much makes Prescott "vulnerable".

Losing Prescott to injury on Sunday is devastating for the Cowboys' prospects this season, and obviously to him as a player.

Oregon Live reported that the Lincoln statue was toppled because he ordered the execution of 38 Dakota men "after the Dakota-U.S". Kerry Tymchuk, the historical society's executive director, told a KOIN News reporter that no exhibits had been damaged.

"It's a positive to his chances of getting it back to normal", said Jerry Jones.

"He's our future. He's special". "If anyone can overcome anything, it would be Dak".

Prescott won praise on the eve of the season for encouraging people to talk openly about mental health, revealing he had struggled with depression and anxiety following the suicide of his brother earlier this year. The Cowboys could keep him for another year with a one-year, $37.7 million franchise tag, or they could sign him to a long-term contract, or they could let him walk.
