Dallas Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott has officially confirmed that he will play in Week 1 versus the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
At the start of training camp, Prescott suffered a shoulder strain and he was held out of the entire preseason.
“I’m ready. I’m definitely ready. I’m excited. I’ve put a lot of work in to get to this point,” Prescott told reporters on Friday, via the Dallas Morning News’ Michael Gehlken.
Prescott was on a record-breaking pace last year as he had 1,856 passing yards through the first five games.
Unfortunately for Prescott and the Cowboys, the quarterback suffered a season-ending ankle injury in Week 5.
“I have high expectations for myself. I plan to come out starting fast,” he said, via David Moore of the Dallas Morning News. “I plan to come out better than I was last year, to be honest.”
