Cowboys ‘don’t have any concern’ about Dak Prescott’s status

The Dallas Cowboys are heading into another season with high aspirations of pushing toward Super Bowl contention.

Much of the attention lies on star quarterback Dak Prescott to push the franchise toward that ultimate end goal. However, Prescott is going into Week 1 action against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers dealing with an ankle injury.

Despite that, head coach Mike McCarthy recently voiced that he has “no concern” about the situation.

“He’s going to be a full participant today,” McCarthy said, via Michael Gehlken of the Dallas Morning News. “I anticipate he’ll be the same tomorrow, so I don’t have any concern [for Sunday].”

Prescott went through practice as a full participant on Friday, which should erase any additional doubts. The Cowboys will need the Pro Bowler to be a significant offensive factor if they hope to get past the Buccaneers.

Prescott will have plenty of pressure on his shoulders to lead the charge, especially with the Cowboys dealing with injuries to the wide receiver corp that features Michael Gallup for at least the first two weeks of the 2022 campaign due to his recovery from a torn ACL and MCL in his left knee.

Meanwhile, offseason addition James Washington is out for the first month due to a fractured foot. The Cowboys may look to depend on their running back duo of Ezekiel Elliott and Tony Pollard to take the pressure off Prescott to lead the charge.

The Buccaneers are favored by 2.5 points despite being on the road for the Sunday night matchup.
