Cowboys QB Dak Prescott says right ankle is fine

Dallas Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott said there’s “absolutely nothing” wrong with his right ankle.

Prescott answered questions Tuesday after being spotted in a walking boot while on vacation in Mexico last week.

“Honestly, I’m getting older. It’s the same ankle that I snapped, and I had a nasty surgery on four years ago so a couple of hard days of training and you know, you get a little sore and you’re going on a fishing trip, and you want to protect it and make sure things don’t get worse,” he told ESPN at his Dallas-area youth football camp.

“Literally, it’s absolutely nothing. People are reaching, trying to make things that they aren’t. I’m getting older and have to take care of my body, have to be smart. If I can take precautions and lessen something by putting on a boot, I’ll do it. Sorry that I caused such a worry.”

Prescott, 30, sustained a season-ending injury to the ankle in Week 5 of the 2020 season.

Last season, he made his third Pro Bowl and topped the NFL with 36 touchdown passes.

Prescott is entering the final year of his contract and is set to earn $29 million this season. He said he is letting his agent handle contract talks and focusing on the start of training camp on July 25.

“Day One of training camp, my mind flips to obviously helping my team and doing everything I can within the organization and on the football field to make sure I’m my best and everyone around me is there best and all that will take care of itself like it always has,” he said.

Prescott owns a 73-41 record as the Cowboys’ starting quarterback since 2016. He has completed 67.0 percent of his passes for 29,459 yards with 202 touchdowns and 74 interceptions. He is 2-5 in the playoffs.
