“I’ve got a lot of concerns about the Cowboys heading into the season but Dak Prescott is actually not one of them. Everyone I talked to has said he has been in the facility every single day. He’s mobile, he’s out and about.

“What is intriguing about this, there was all of this buzz that he had the second surgery and then he pushed his recovery too much, and there might be concerns about the ankle. There has been no talk of that.”

Slater added that she has spoken to a lot of people close to the Cowboys’ organization. And most people that she spoke to have said that there is no reason to worry about Prescott’s health when he makes his return next season.
