Mike McCarthy Shares Gruesome Of Walking Up To Dak Prescott When He Injured His Ankle

In a piece for Peter King's FMIA column, Dallas Cowboys head coach Mike McCarthy shared the story of walking up on QB Dak Prescott after his the compound fracture and dislocation of his right ankle last year. McCarthy said Dak was trying to fix it himself...

“I walked up on him when he was down on the field,” McCarthy told me, “and I don’t think I’ve seen anything exactly like it. He was trying to put his ankle back together, right there on the field. It was almost—this isn’t quite the right word—but it was almost barbaric.”

Prescott to me, on a quiet day at camp last Friday: “I remember that. My mom had always told us when we got hurt, just to get off the field so she knew that we were like okay. I initially thought I had rolled it and I had looked and grabbed my ankle and it was facing the other way. I’m like, ‘No way.’ I just was trying to like, I thought maybe if I slammed it into place a couple times it’d just snap back or maybe it was just dislocated and it wasn’t broken, stuck like it was. When I did that a couple of times and it didn’t move, that’s when I just started waving to get help. I was literally like, ‘I can’t do this myself. Help, help.’ “

reminds me of Tony Finau at the Masters a couple years ago, who dislocated his ankle and popped it back into place. He finished play the par-3 tournament, then shot a great round the next day.

kind of reads like a Bee article to be honest.

I, for one, am glad to see Larry Leo correct an poorly written headline.
