McCarthy: Prescott set to fully participate in training camp
Dak Prescott is ready to be unleashed.
Dallas Cowboys head coach Mike McCarthy said Tuesday that the quarterback is expected to fully participate in the team's training camp in July.
"He hasn't missed anything that's been slated. He's doing a lot of extra frankly so the anticipation would be for him to go every day is the outlook," McCarthy said, according to ESPN's Todd Archer.
"We're not naive," he continued. "It's just like any player that comes back from injury, especially a major joint injury, the first year back there's going to be some things you have to work through, but I would anticipate we'd start with him in full mode, get him into the team periods, and get back to playing football."
Prescott has been a limited participant in the team's offseason program while recovering from a dislocation and compound fracture of his right ankle suffered last October.
The signal-caller has been held out of 11-on-11 sessions, but he's seemed close to full mobility during practice.
"He's definitely had some moments from workouts, probably three-to-four weeks back, where I definitely felt once we were able to see him move in the pocket, out of the pocket-type drills, scramble drills," McCarthy said. "We're doing more of that work by design for a number of reasons and that only helps him. ...Physically I think he's right where he needs to be."
The Cowboys signed Prescott to a four-year, $160-million contract in March after twice using the franchise tag on the passer.
Prescott enjoyed the best statistical start to a campaign in his career in 2020, leading Dallas to a 2-3 record before suffering his injury against the New York Giants.
He was on pace to shatter Peyton Manning's single-season passing yards record (5,477) with 1,856 yards over five games, and the 27-year-old also threw nine touchdown tosses against four interceptions.
