"I'm in better shape than I've ever been." Those were the words of Dallas Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott prior to the start of training camp, and he was correct.

The Dallas quarterback had not been fully healthy since the start of the 2019 season, due to a variety of injuries that kept him out or slow.

Yet, despite being the season opener for 2022–23, this was intended to be Prescott's best year.

Losing to the Buccaneers 19-3 in their season opener dealt a severe blow to the Cowboys.

Shaq Barrett, a Buccaneers linebacker, came back on Prescott's hand as he was throwing the ball in the final minutes of the fourth quarter, bending it backward.

Prescott will require surgery on his right thumb and is anticipated to miss several weeks, according to Jerry Jones, who spoke after the game.

Prescott was not having a particularly good night prior to the finish of the game. He threw one interception, was sacked twice, and only completed 14 of his 29 passes for 134 yards.

Prescott threw 37 touchdown throws in 2021, a single-season record.

Prescott was limited in practise earlier this week because of a sore ankle, which he attributed to a new set of cleats.
