FRISCO, Texas — So far as Dallas Cowboys government vice chairman Stephen Jones is anxious, Dak Prescott‘s season-ending proper ankle harm does nothing to alter the ideas the group has on the quarterback.

“Completely not,” Jones mentioned on 105.3 The Fan in Dallas. “He is our future. He is particular. If anybody can overcome something, it could be Dak. That is one thing that our medical doctors really feel good that he’ll overcome and are available again higher than ever.”

Prescott is about to be an unrestricted free agent after this season after taking part in on the $31.4 million franchise tag in 2020. The Cowboys can use the tag on him once more subsequent March, which is able to price $37.7 million, or enable him to check the free-agent market.

The Cowboys and Prescott’s agent, Todd France, had been unable to achieve an settlement on a long-term deal earlier than the July 15 deadline, which meant Prescott needed to play this season on the tag. The edges can resume negotiations after the season.

The Cowboys’ supply to Prescott over the summer season included a $50 million signing bonus and round $110 million assured, however the size of the deal was a sticking level. The Cowboys needed a five-year deal, whereas Prescott was looking for 4.

Either side, nevertheless, have maintained perception {that a} long-term resolution will occur; not if one will occur.

The harm complicates the matter some, though a supply pegged Prescott’s restoration time at 4-6 months. Vast receiver Allen Hurns suffered the same harm in a 2018 playoff recreation and was prepared for offseason work in a couple of months.

With the wage cap anticipated to lower in 2021 due to monetary losses because of the coronavirus pandemic, the Cowboys ready for the potential for utilizing the franchise tag on Prescott a second time by restructuring the contracts of Tyron Smith, Zack Martin and DeMarcus Lawrence. The strikes created about $27 million in cap room in 2020 that the Cowboys will carry ahead to subsequent yr.

Jones, nevertheless, was extra involved with Prescott’s well being than Prescott’s funds. He and Jerry Jones, the proprietor and normal supervisor, spoke with Prescott earlier than he went to the hospital for surgical procedure to scrub the wound and restore the fracture.

“He is our heartbeat. Simply to lose him, simply actually simply kills you by way of deep down,” Stephen Jones mentioned. “For him, you harm for every part that he stands for and I feel we’re nonetheless in shock. However actually Dak is such a warrior. He is been via rather a lot. He is all the time overcome it and that is going to be no exception. He’ll get in there and do what he must do, I am positive. Clearly all people’s prayers are with him. He ought to be capable to every part you might want to do to rehab and are available again able to go. It is only a very tough setback for him and for us. It is one thing that we really feel nice about him completely overcoming and be able to go subsequent yr.”
