The emotions of a last-second win against the New York Giants could not overcome the disappointment the Dallas Cowboys felt Sunday after losing quarterback Dak Prescott for the season.
Prescott suffered a compound fracture and dislocation of his right ankle that will require surgery Sunday. The injury occurred on a 9-yard run while being tackled by Giants defensive back Logan Ryan with 6 minutes, 33 seconds to play in the third quarter, and it quickly brought a hush to the AT&T Stadium crowd, teammates and opponents alike.
Prescott left the field, his right leg in an air cast, on a cart and in tears. He was taken to local hospital for surgery to clean out the wound and repair the fracture.
