According to ProFootballTalk, Cowboys head coach Mike McCarthy announced Monday that Prescott is out of the hospital and has returned home.

He now has a long road of recovery ahead of him.

This is a great update for Prescott, the Cowboys, his family and all the fans of the organization. His ankle injury is one of the worst that I’ve ever seen.

It was absolutely gruesome, and there’s no other way to describe it. It made me feel sick when I saw it for the first time.

Now, Prescott will take it step-by-step as he bounces back from a compound fracture. I certainly wouldn’t want to bet against the quarterback.

It’s a minor setback in the process of a monster comeback. Everyone is pulling for Dak, and I have no doubt we’ll see him again in 2021.
