Dak Prescott injury update: Cowboys QB suffers calf injury during game-winning play vs. Patriots

Dak Prescott’s status for the Cowboys’ next game — and perhaps more of Dallas’ season — is uncertain after he suffered an injury at the end of the team’s overtime victory over the Patriots on Sunday. 

Prescott reportedly suffered a right calf strain on his game-winning touchdown pass to CeeDee Lamb in OT. He was helped by Ezekiel Elliott into the locker room after the game.

Dallas’ starting quarterback is scheduled to receive an MRI on Monday. His timetable to return is unclear, although the Cowboys do have a bye in Week 7, which will allow him more time to recover. Prescott was in a walking boot as he met with with reporters after the game.

Prescott has battled multiple injuries the past two years. He suffered a season-ending ankle fracture in Week 5 last season and then managed a right shoulder ailment that kept him out for the majority of 2021 preseason.
