Shark Bites

Cowboys HC Mike McCarthy said Saturday that QB Dak Prescott (ankle) is on track to be a full-go when training camp opens in late July. Prescott has had "excellent workouts" the past couple of weeks and is expected to do "most things" at OTAs, McCarthy added. Prescott, by all indications, has had a smooth rehab from October's fractured and dislocated ankle. We're not expecting it to be an issue this season.

Cowboys QB Dak Prescott has earned rave reviews for his work through the first 3 days of training camp. "Prescott has shown no signs of ever having suffered a severe ankle injury," The Athletic's Jon Machota writes "His mobility looks as good as ever and he’s been accurate in individual and team drills." At this point, we can put any concerns about that ankle to bed. Prescott -- with a loaded group of pass catchers -- has upside to lead all QBs in fantasy points this season.

Cowboys QB Dak Prescott is not expected to be limited at the open of training camp. “I see for him to be a full participant,” HC Mike McCarthy said on Wednesday. “It’s still a projection. We’ll see how it goes. Obviously, we’ll watch it.” Dak, who suffered a compound right ankle fracture on October 11, was held out of team drills in OTAs. We’ll keep an eye on the ankle, but with a loaded supporting cast, Prescott's positioned to tally top-5 fantasy totals.

According to Jon Machota of The Athletic, Cowboys QB Dak Prescott appears “on track” to be a “full participant” in training camp. Machota observed Dak moving well in OTAs, all while “never seeming to favor his surgically repaired right ankle.” HC Mike McCarthy added the following: “Physically, I think he’s right where he needs to be. He’s done everything. He hasn’t missed anything that’s been slated. He’s doing a lot of extra, frankly, so the anticipation would be for him to go every day (in training camp) is the outlook. We’re not naïve. It’s just like any player that comes back from injury, especially a major joint injury, the first year back there’s going to be some things you have to work through. But I would anticipate we’d start with him in full mode, get him into the team periods and get back to playing football.” Prescott, almost 28, remains a high-ceiling QB1.

Cowboys QB Dak Prescott (ankle) was on the field for the start of OTAs on Monday. It was his 1st live action since suffering a compound fracture and dislocation of his right ankle in Week 5. All reports on his recovery have been positive, and Prescott remains on track to be full-go for the season opener.

Per NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport, Cowboys QB Dak Prescott is “expected to be ready to go” for training camp. He adds that Prescott isn’t expected to participate much in spring practices. Regardless, it’s good news, as the 6th-year passer has progressed well from 2 ankle surgeries. A healthy Dak projects as a top-5 fantasy passer.
