Cowboys QB Dak Prescott undergoes surgery for a compound ankle fracture
An ambulance was ready as Cowboys' Duck Prescott was taken off the field, tears streaming down his face.

Prescott was rushed to a local hospital and scheduled to undergo surgery Sunday night for a compound fracture and dislocation of his ankle he suffered in the win over the Giants.

The horrific injury occurred in the third quarter when Prescott defended 9 yards to the left, engaging with Giants' defensive back Logan Ryan over Ryan's interference. Prescott's right leg has turned over and shattered near the left lateral line of the red zone. The pitch was quiet as the players attempted to tackle the injury of the midfielder, who has started 68 games in a row since Dallas picked him up in the fourth round of the 2016 NFL Draft.

It's tough, "said colleague and returning student Ezekiel Elliot. "You see how much he has always been throughout his career, and how powerful he is. It's sucking to see a warrior fall like this."

Prescott was treated with a sterile on-site dressing prior to surgery to flush the wound and repair the fracture.

Even Giants Co-ordinator Jason Jarrett, Prescott coach for the first four years of Quarterback, called Cowboys coach Mike McCarthy to express his remorse.

The Bengals long-running Andy Dalton, who was signed by Dallas in May, replaced Prescott. Dalton completed nine of 11 passes, leading to the game winning marked by 19 and 38-yard arrows to receive Michael Gallup. Kicker Greg Zuerlein sealed the victory 37-34 with a field goal from 34 yards.

The Cowboys improved to 2-3 under McCarthy, good enough to take first in the weak NFC area. But the post-match celebration was dimmed under the specter of Prescott's injury.

McCarthy said, "I feel terrible for him." "He is clearly the captain of this soccer team. I have no doubt that he will rebound from this. This will be just part of his great story. This will be just another chapter of his great story.

Prior to exiting, Prescott completed 14 of 21 attempts for 166 yards and interceptions. He rushed twice for 7 yards.

Prescott also became the first Cowboys back-midfield player in more than 30 years to catch a touchdown, an 11-yard trick game that led Dallas to advance to 24-20 before the half.

Prescott failed to land a long-term off-season deal with Dallas, and instead played 2020 on a fully guaranteed one-year franchise brand worth $ 31.4 million.

The Cowboys opened the 2020 at 1-3 even as Prescott became the first midfielder in NFL history to throw 450 yards in three straight matches. In the Dallas win over the Falcons, Prescott became the first midfielder to play 450 yards plus dash for three touchdowns.
