Prescott has surgery on non-throwing shoulder

Raiders to hire McDaniels as new coach

INDIANAPOLIS — Dallas Cowboys coach Mike McCarthy said Dak Prescott had surgery on his left shoulder last week but it will not impact the quarterback’s availability for the off-season program.

McCarthy said the non-throwing shoulder injury was an “irritant” to Prescott as the season progressed but he did not think it impacted the quarterback’s play last season.

Prescott missed a game because of a left calf strain suffered in an overtime win against the New England Patriots. He was not on the injury report during the season with a shoulder problem.

McCarthy termed the surgery as a “clean up.” He said Prescott has been at The Star for rehab and workouts already with a number of teammates.

Prescott passed on a chance of playing in the Pro Bowl after a long season in which he was coming back from two surgeries on the compound fracture and dislocation of his right ankle and the right latissimus strain he suffered during training camp.

The ankle injury kept Prescott as a limited participant in the offseason program in 2021 and in McCarthy’s first season he was limited by the pandemic and a contract issue after the Cowboys placed the franchise tag on him.

Last season Prescott set a franchise record with 37 touchdown passes. He completed 410 passes for 4,449 yards last season.
