Dak Gets MRI: Injury Update as Cowboys QB Prescott Explains Injury; Camp Winners

It’s still early in camp, but there are players being noticed. Some good, some bad, some Dak – The Dallas Cowboys Daily Blitz Podcast

Just a few training camp practices into the process, and clearly it’s too soon to rationally sound an alarm (about Dak Prescott, maybe?) or offer someone a post-season award. Or is it?

Welcome to the Daily Blitz by DSP Media in partnership with

There are no reasons to sound the alarm on the Dak Prescott departure from Wednesday's workout in Oxnard, according to our Mike Fisher, who is at camp and first helps us file this report from the sideline. (Hint: The QB is OK.)

But, there is an update: The "arm'' is now the "shoulder.'' The "soreness'' is now a "strain.''

After leaving today’s practice early with soreness in his right arm, Prescott underwent an MRI examination. The results of that test showed that Prescott has a muscle strain in his right shoulder. He will be treated and further evaluated on a day-to-day basis.

“I felt some soreness when making certain throws today, and I really just decided not to push things too far,'' Prescott said. "Better to be cautious and smart about it. I don’t see this as any kind of serious setback. We’ll treat it on a daily basis, and I’ll be fine.”

Hopefully so.

Meanwhile, there are only 53 spots on an NFL roster. That means some players stand out above others, and isn’t that the whole point of all this?

Some winners and losers are more obvious, while others are more subtle. Some players put themselves into bad situations while others are just playing the wrong position on the wrong team.

There are some defensive players who are already making names for themselves, which is good since that’s the biggest area of concern for most with regard to the 2021 Cowboys.

But not to confine ourselves to just players, a coach is also standing out among others. Let’s discuss!
