Former Dallas Cowboys quarterback turned FOX analyst Troy Aikman had a telling admission on Dak Prescott’s injury status.
Prescott is recovered from his devastating 2020 leg injury, though he’s currently dealing with another injury in his shoulder.
The Cowboys have shut Prescott down from throwing for a bit, though he reportedly did some “light throwing” on Saturday.
Aikman believes Prescott’s shoulder injury might be a little more serious than the Cowboys are letting on.
“The Cowboys are downplaying it, but I think when your franchise quarterback is missing the amount of time he’s missing, I tend to think it’s probably a little bit more significant than what they have led on,” Aikman said.

While that might have been true, the Cowboys shared a promising update on Prescott’s status over the weekend.
Head coach Mike McCarthy told reporters that his starting quarterback was able to do some light throwing on Saturday.

The Cowboys are about a month away from opening the regular season.
Dallas is set to take on Tampa Bay in the Opening Night game on Thursday, Sept. 9. Kickoff is set for 8:20 p.m. E.T.
The Cowboys obviously want to make sure that Prescott is 100 percent ready for that one.
