Steve and Dr. Cole discuss the recovery potential for QB Dak Prescott of the Dallas Cowboys. Prescott suffered a? compound fracture and dislocation of his right ankle in the October 11th matchup with the Giants.

Prescott?s timeline for recovery was set at four months, a mark Cowboys VP Stephen Jones said he?s on pace to challenge. The team hopes he?ll be ready for offseason work ahead of a 2021 season, in which the Cowboys must decide whether and through what means to re-sign him.

Before his injury, Prescott started 72 straight games, including postseason appearances,?for the franchise. He hadn?t missed a contest since Dallas selected him in the fourth round, 135th overall, of the 2016 NFL draft.

Prescott threw for 1,856 yards and nine touchdowns to four interceptions in just four and a half games this season. He scored three rushing touchdowns and one receiving score. Prescott also set?NFL records as he passed for at least 450 yards in each of three complete games preceding his?injury.

Dr. Cole also talks about new procedures in the upcoming NBA Virtual Combine and how the Bulls medical staff is updating their new Coach, Billy Donovan and Athletic Trainer, Todd Campbell.
