Dallas Cowboys great Michael Irvin is not liking what he is seeing when it comes to Dak Prescott’s shoulder injury.
The Hall of Fame wide receiver was discussing the latest development around Prescott’s shoulder — another MRI that was announced by the team — during the latest episode of The Michael Irvin Podcast.
Irvin is concerned that the injury is serious and said “there’s something bigger going on here that they’re not telling you.”
TMZ Sports shared the audio:
“When I was there at camp, he was throwing the ball back to the guy that was snapping it to him with his left hand,” Irvin said. “It only takes that little wave with the right hand to throw the ball two yards, and I was like, ‘Oh, no. Oh, no.’
“The worst thing in the world, right now, is to have everybody in camp saying, ‘Oh, no, we’re going to have to play this season without Dak.’ Or, ‘We’re going to have to miss a considerable amount of time without Dak.’
“You don’t stay out this long with something this minor at that position when you had all of last year off.”The Cowboys have insisted that there is no reason to be concerned about Prescott’s injury, but the timing of their announcement and the decision to have a previously unscheduled MRI conducted did raise plenty of eyebrows.The Cowboys are set to open the 2021-22 regular season on Thursday, September 9 against the defending Super Bowl champion Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Kick-off at Raymond James Stadium is set for 8:20 p.m. ET on NBC. Whether Prescott will be under center for Dallas remains to be seen.
