Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott says he’s “definitely ready” for Thursday’s opening NFL game against the Tampa Buccaneers. Prescott’s season last year came to an abrupt end as he suffered a compound fracture and dislocated his right ankle.
Now, after nearly 11 months of preparation, he’s back.
After a recent Cowboys practice session, Prescott said from team headquarters: “I’m definitely ready, I love it the way it is (and) wouldn’t want it any other way, to be honest. I love night games. Love playing on prime time. I think it’s just set for the perfect stage. Them coming off the Super Bowl title, and us, having fans back to full capacity, I think this is what the NFL and the world needs.”
“From the shoulder to the leg to my mind, I’m ready to go.”
In a recent practice recorded by HBO’s Hard Knocks, Prescott tells his teammates: “I ain’t scared. I put a little touch on that one, it worked out. Let’s be smooth, let’s run fast, let’s get in and out.”
Fans will be watching the quarterback closely during Thursday’s big game. There is certainly much hope that his comeback will be just as electric as he plans it to be.
