And perhaps the biggest boost the side has going into the new season is the return of quarterback Dak Prescott. The quarterback who played on the franchise tag last year suffered a brutal ankle injury which put him out for the majority of the season.

Dak Prescott fired up for new season with Dallas Cowboys

With the first episode of Dallas Cowboys’ ‘Hard Knocks’ debuting on Tuesday, Prescott’s enthusiasm was there for all to see.

Prescott further talked about the adversities he had to face last season following the injury and how a setback to his surgery forced him to go under the knife twice.

“When I had the first surgery, it was an open wound, and they just wanted to go in there and do what they needed to do initially,” Prescott said. “I thought I was going to be able to start rehab, and yet I had to go back under the knife. Yeah, you know we kept it down. Nobody knew that. Then, (the scar) became a wishbone.”

The Cowboys have been taking things slow with Prescott, but in the episode, it was clear to see that he wasn’t too happy about getting limited snaps in practice.

“I’m not coming out of this b*tch,” Prescott said. “I sat last year enough. . . .I sat out enough. I’ll let y’all know if I’m f—ing sore or if something’s bothering me. F—, I’ve been out long enough.”
