It’s a sight for sore eyes if you ask Cowboys fans.

On social media Tuesday night into Wednesday morning, videos began circulating of rehabbing Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott back on a practice field with a football in his hands.

Prescott missed the majority of the 2020 season after suffering a devastating ankle injury in a Week 5 win over the New York Giants last October.

In videos posted from Damian Devon of 3DQBTexas, Prescott can be seen taking snaps and doing short drop-backs while throwing short and intermediate passes. Noticeably missing from the videos, the boot Prescott has been sporting on his right ankle in recent months as his rehab continued.

In addition to his ongoing rehab, Prescott reached another level of success this offseason when it came to finally signing a long-term extension to remain the Cowboys’ quarterback for the foreseeable future.

Just over a month ago, Prescott agreed to a new four-year deal worth $160 million with an NFL-record $126 million in guaranteed money. Prescott also received $66 million upon signing and will be paid an NFL-record $75 million in the 2021 season.

Since his injury and throughout his recovery, Prescott has been expected to participate once the Cowboys’ offseason activities roll around, and the quarterback appears on track to do just that.
