Dak Prescott is a very rich man. The Dallas Cowboys rewarded their star franchise signal-caller with a hefty contract earlier this offseason. Prescott is locked into the Cowboys for the foreseeable future as he enters his athletic prime.
There has been some concern regarding Prescott’s recovery from the nasty ankle injury that he suffered in week five of the 2020 season. The majority believe Prescott will be 100-percent by week-one. Others, though, have voiced some skepticism.
105.3 The Fan’s Mike Bacsik has been the most prominent of those that have expressed doubt. However, head coach Mike McCarthy is confident about where Prescott stands in his rehab. McCarthy expects his quarterback to be “completely cleared” for the beginning of training camp.
Mike McCarthy expects Dak Prescott to do “most things” as Cowboys transition into on-field work in the offseason program. “He feels really good. He’s had some excellent workouts the last couple weeks.”

PRESCOTT IS EXPECTED TO PARTICIPATE IN OTAS
In addition to being on track for training camp, Dak Prescott is expected to participate in offseason team activities. It will be his first real work on the field in an organized team environment.
McCarthy stated that Prescott will “do most things”. According to a report from ESPN’s Todd Archer, the Cowboys head coach explained that the organization has a plan in place for Prescott this offseason.
“He’ll do most things,” McCarthy said when asked what he anticipates Prescott will do during the on-field work. “There’s a plan in place that’s coordinated with [athletic trainers Britt Brown and Jim Maurer] and the training room so I know he feels really good. He’s really had some excellent workouts here in the last couple weeks. I’d see him doing most of the work.”
This is significant because it signals that Prescott is indeed on track to making a full recovery. Prescott’s work ethic and determination have long been lauded, and that seems to be the case in his recovery process, as well.
The NFL seems to be in belief that Prescott will be more than ready to go for week one, as well. Dallas is set take on the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in the 2021 kickoff game in what will surely shatter NFL ratings records.
Dak Prescott is (almost) back. Get excited, Cowboys fans.
