Dak Prescott Didn’t Tell Cowboys About Undergoing Anesthesia For 11 Hours



Dak Prescott apparently had some trouble with communication leading up to the regular season.

According to a report from Clarence Hill of FortWorth Star-Telegram, the Dallas Cowboys‘ star quarterback failed to inform the team that he would be undergoing 11 hours of anesthesia in order to get a massive leg tattoo done in one sitting.

The incident took place before Cowboys owner and general manager Jerry Jones traded for former first-round pick Trey Lance without telling Prescott or the team’s head coach.

“Remember the controversy about owner Jerry Jones not telling Prescott and Mike McCarthy about the trade for Lance,” Hill wrote. “Well, the highest-paid player in franchise history didn’t tell Jones or his coach about the process of going for 11 hours under until after it was done.”

Jones did not appear to be very happy about Prescott failing to mention going under for more than 10 hours.

“I certainly didn’t know he was under for 10 hours,” Jones said. “Just so you’re clear, I had no idea about tattoos. I better get up to date on it. I had no idea that required that kind of sedation of any tattoo. It further explains to me why I don’t have a tattoo.”

McCarthy also was unaware of Prescott’s procedure and found out when Prescott showed up to the team facility with an extremely swollen right leg.

“I was like ‘whoa, what the…happened to your leg’,” McCarthy told Hill. “So he shows it to me. I’m like ‘Jesus Christ, how long did that take? You’ve been doing it all week. He said, ‘no, I did it all at one time’. He showed me a video of it and like ‘Oh, my God’.”

It’s hard to believe that a tattoo could ruin the relationship between a quarterback and a franchise, but communication from the guy who is supposed to be your franchise signal-caller is very important.

And with two years remaining on his contract, Prescott may need to focus more on the field and less on anesthesia and ink.
