By now, almost everyone has heard about, or seen, the brutal ankle injury suffered by Dak Prescott on Sunday afternoon. The compound fracture with dislocation caused Prescott to have surgery right away and we have since learned that a four to six month recovery timeline is expected.

Given the nature of the injury, there has been plenty of speculation about the recovery process and whether Prescott will heal without any complications for his long-term career. Jerry Jones addressed that question today and indicated that the doctors don’t think there isn’t anything in this injury that should be a problem past the rehabilitation period.

It sounds like what Jerry is saying there is that nothing was found when they did the surgery that would be a problem past the four to six month period of recovery. That’s very good news for Prescott and the Cowboys.

Jerry went on to say that the doctors think Prescott will be fine to participate in offseason activities in late spring.

As bad as the injury was, it’s great news that it looks like it will be a clean recovery for Prescott.

Now about getting a deal done...
