Frisco, Texas – Dallas Cowboys Quarterback Duck Prescott He will play Sunday against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers despite right ankle pain that limited him in Thursday training, according to coach Mike McCarthy.
“I have no worries about his playing,” McCarthy said.
McCarthy wouldn’t say if Prescott had an MRI on Thursday, but said, “We checked it out. We made sure everything was fine.” McCarthy said Prescott will be a full participant for the next two days of work, leading up to play.
Prescott said Thursday that his surgically repaired ankle felt “uncomfortable” after wearing a different style of cleats for the first time this summer.
Prescott was on the field for part of the training which was open to the media before heading to the locker room. He said he did not twist the ankle in practice. He said he was wearing a new pair of Jordan 11s after wearing Jordan 1s all summer during training camp. Jordan wore 11secs to last year’s games, but said he would be returning to Jordan 1.
“I promise you I’m great,” Prescott said Thursday. “Just be very careful. Swapped shoes today, might not have been the best idea. We’re fine. Promise it.”
Asked why Prescott would not return to his more comfortable cleats and return to training, McCarthy said: “Extreme caution.”
“We do it with all the players. There are always exams or things going on. We interact with everything. That’s just the nature of the game. So, really, I know the importance of Duck and the quarterback position but it’s a really standard procedure you go through this any time a player has a problem. problem “.
