Dallas Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott is expected to be out for several weeks after injuring his hand in a game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
Now, a video replay of the event shows the exact moment he injured his hand that ended the game.
In the fourth quarter of the game, Prescott got hit by Ezekiel Elliott as two defenders charged at him.
Unfortunately, his right hand connected with Shaq Barrett’s hand while throwing the ball, causing the problem.
Prescott was immediately removed for evaluation by medical personnel. He was forced off the field and replaced with QB Cooper Rush. It remains to be seen how long Dak Prescott will actually be out, but the fact that he’s having surgery doesn’t raise hopes.
The team is expected to provide a clear timeline to deal with their QB’s head injury, although they have other issues to deal with on top of that. With the departure of Prescott, the question of who will take over as QB1 is now in the spotlight.
Will the Cowboys turn to free agency? Or will they add to the callers they already have? The Cowboys’ success in 2022 depends on Prescott, if he misses a big campaign and they can’t find a suitable replacement soon, then the team is in big trouble.
