Cowboys QB Dak Prescott

A little more than a year to the day after compound-fracturing and dislocating his right ankle, Dallas Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott suffered a separate malady to the same leg.

Prescott strained his calf amid Sunday’s 35-29 overtime conquest at New England, an injury that occurred on the game’s final play: a 35-yard touchdown strike to wide receiver CeeDee Lamb.

“It just came down funny and that’s what it was. It’s something we’ll get checked out and I’ll be fine,” Prescott told reporters after the victory, per the official team website.

He added: “Life keeps throwing punches and I’m going to keep throwing them back.”

The NFL MVP contender — who completed 36 of 51 passes for 445 yards, three TDs and one interception against New England — confirmed a Monday MRI will determine the severity of the injury. He showed up to his postgame press conference in a jovial mood despite being dressed in a walking boot.

Dak Promises to be ‘Fine’

Obviously any affliction to Prescott, the $160 million franchise bedrock, is cause for concern. Fortunately, though, it came at a fortuitous time, with 5-1 Dallas heading into its bye week, a point he made sure to underscore.

“I’ll be fine. I can promise you that,” Prescott said after the game, per Todd Archer of “Great timing going into the bye week but as I said y’all can have fun with it this week.”

Archer further reported that Prescott’s ailment is dissimilar to the calf strain that has shelved WR Michael Gallup, who went down in the season opener and was given a three-to-five-week recovery timetable.

“A source said Prescott’s injury is different than the one that has kept Michael Gallup out for the last five games and the bye week will help,” Archer wrote on Twitter.
