FRISCO, Texas — Dallas Cowboys coach Mike McCarthy says he believes Dak Prescott will probably be utterly cleared for work by the point coaching camp begins in July, if not sooner.
“I’ve no purpose to not assume that,” McCarthy stated Saturday. “I believe this week in Part 2 will probably be a pleasant step in that path.”
Prescott’s restoration from the compound fracture and dislocation of his proper ankle he suffered final October has gone effectively. He has been at The Star for rehab and exercises and in addition has been figuring out together with his private quarterbacks coach.
The Cowboys open Part 2 of the offseason program with on-field instructing classes this week. In Part 3, they are going to undergo organized crew actions and the obligatory minicamp that runs June 8-10.
“He’ll do most things,” McCarthy said when asked what he anticipates Prescott will do during the on-field work. “There’s a plan in place that’s coordinated with [athletic trainers Britt Brown and Jim Maurer] and the training room so I know he feels really good. He’s really had some excellent workouts here in the last couple weeks. I’d see him doing most of the work.”
After suffering the injury last October, Prescott was given a four-to-six month recovery period. He had a second cleanup surgery in December that was unrelated to the break, but the Cowboys had no worries about making him the second-highest-paid quarterback in the NFL with a four-year, $160 million contract.
In the wild-card round of the 2018 playoffs, wide receiver Allen Hurns suffered an injury similar to Prescott and was back on the field taking part in the organized team activities and minicamp.
