After Dak Prescott's season ended in Week 5 last year following a brutal ankle injury, the Dallas Cowboys season effectively ended as well.
Prescott was putting up some of the best numbers of his career and put the Cowboys on his back to will its way to wins in the first month of the year.
Before the injury, Dak threw for 450 yards in three consecutive games and was on pace to crush several Cowboys and NFL records. He also threw for nine touchdowns and ran for three.
So you can imagine some Cowboys fans are holding their breath after Wednesday's practice, where Prescott left early with a shoulder injury.
