Prescott also thanked all of his fans, teammates and fellow NFLers for all the support he's received over the past few days. They've been more than overwhelming. "The guys we've seen out there, we'll just see out there more". "I'm in great spirits". Prescott had successful surgery for a right ankle compound fracture and dislocation and the plan is to release him from the hospital today, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports. Early indications are the rehab process could take four-to-six months, which means Andy Dalton is set to handle quarterback duties in Dallas for the rest of the season. He was visibly emotional as he left the field on a cart as players and coaches from the Cowboys and Giants came over to wish him well. Dak has a long road to recovery, but that journey could start as soon as today, according to NBC Sports. "And I'm excited to move forward and write it". Keep it simple. This is just freakish that they would even go this route totally odd to me that they would even show him getting injured like this.

"And I'mma stay that way", Dak added.
