Dallas Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott suffered a compound fracture and dislocated his right ankle against the Giants last October. He needed two surgeries to get it right, but he’s now set to be a full go from Day 1 at training camp, per the Dallas Morning News’ Michael Gehlken.

Prescott participated in minicamp, but was limited and never did any 11-on-11 drills or saw any kind of pass rush. He should be in the thick of it come this time next week. Prescott, despite his injury, earned a big contract extension and pay day this offseason. His absence meant a lost season for the Cowboys which likely pushed Jerry Jones to get a deal done.

Prescott put up some video game numbers in his four full games last year, as he passed for over 450 yards in three of those four games. A poor defense pushed him into those numbers, but there’s no doubt he and this offense can be explosive in 2021.
