ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) — Dallas Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott will need surgery for a fractured bone in his throwing hand.
He will miss several weeks after getting hurt in the fourth quarter of the season-opening 19-3 loss to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
Prescott hurt his hand throwing a pass
Prescott’s right hand made contact with a rushing defender when throwing a pass. Prescott said he initially thought he had just jammed his hand like he has many times before, but realized on the next play that he couldn’t grip the football.
After initially being checked on the sideline, he went to the locker room for X-rays.
The Dallas Cowboys next game is Sunday September 18th, at 3:25 p.m. at home vs the Cincinnati Bengals. Cowboys games are carried live in Texarkana on the radio on Fox Sports Texarkana 97.1 FM and 1400 AM.
