Dallas Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott suffered a right calf strain during Sunday’s overtime win against the New England Patriots and will be evaluated on Monday. The injury happened on the last play of the game when Prescott threw a touchdown to CeeDee Lamb.
The 28-year-old quarterback told reporters that he “came down funny,” adding, “I’ll be fine. I promise you that. Life keeps throwing punches. I’ll keep throwing them back.” Prescott has also been dealing with a shoulder issue throughout training camp and missed much of the Cowboys’ preseason, as he attempts to return from the devastating leg injury that cost him most of last season.
Dallas has cause for concern if Prescott’s latest injury results in missed play time. Cooper Rush and Will Grier are the only other quarterbacks listed as backup in Prescott’s absence.
