After Prescott said he would undergo another MRI exam on the shoulder injury he suffered on July 28, the Cowboys' Twitter editorialized the team's press release.
Any sort of injury news about Dak Prescott is guaranteed to send Cowboys nation into a panic. The team’s Twitter appeared to take that into consideration when they tried to dull the latest blow.
After Prescott said he would undergo another MRI exam on the shoulder injury he suffered on July 28, the Cowboys’ Twitter editorialized the team’s press release by saying: “It’s not a setback. And it’s not a reason to worry. But QB Dak Prescott is planning on getting another MRI.”
It’s hard to fault the Dallas fans for worrying. Prescott is coming off a season where he suffered a brutal compound fracture in his ankle, ending his season and requiring multiple surgeries in the offseason.
He is fully recovered from that injury, but during a training camp practice on July 28 – shown in the premiere of HBO’s “Hard Knocks” – he felt discomfort in his throwing arm and immediately took himself out of practice.
The original MRI exam revealed no serious issues other than a strain, to heal through rest. It’s clear why one would assume a second MRI would be linked to a setback, but Dallas insists that is not the case.
The Cowboys play the Cardinals in their second preseason game on Friday night. Prescott is not expected to play.
