Dak strains muscle in right shoulder, will 'be fine'

Dallas Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott was diagnosed with a muscle strain in his right shoulder after leaving practice on Wednesday, and is planning "to be cautious and smart about it."

Mike McCarthy lived through the transition of Brett Favre to Aaron Rodgers with the Packers, and now from afar he's glad Rodgers is back in Green Bay. “I think it's great for him,” he said. “I think it's great for the club. I'm very hopeful Aaron gets to finish his time up there. He's done so many great things in his time up there. I was glad to see, I don't know exactly what's going on, but I was glad to see that it's working out."

Safety Malik Hooker continues to work through the COVID-19 protocols and has yet to officially sign with the Cowboys, but Mike McCarthy acknowledged the interest. “I think he just gives us another excellent football player,” he said. “I think he's someone that brings competition. He's coming off a major injury (Achilles) but we just feel like he'd be a really good fit for us.” McCarthy said the addition does not indicate unhappiness with the safeties on the roster already.

The Cowboys want to use Micah Parsons' versatility but Mike McCarthy felt they overdid it with the rookie Thursday. “His volume yesterday was off the charts as far as how much he did out there on the practice field. I think that speaks to him and his ability and his talent,” he said. “… We have great challenges in front of us as far as trying to play all those guys but you don't want to spread him too thin because he is unique.”

Dak Prescott has big expectations for the Cowboys' offense in 2021 “Be the best offense in the NFL,” he said. “Stats, scoring, whatever you want to say, we want to be the best offense and we want to make sure we're playing complementary football first and foremost with our defense and with our special teams. It's just not about getting out there and throwing it 100 times … Giving the defense a chance to get out there and to be their best. First and foremost, just be the best offense in the NFL."

Considering where he was last October after suffering a gruesome ankle injury, Dak Prescott took a moment to reflect before his first practice. “That's something I did well before the injury, so now, it's been a long time since I've been out there,” he said. “It's been awhile since we've been in Oxnard. That was a special moment just to think about where I was, think about all the hard work and support and everything that went into me being back out there and being able to do what I love again.

Ezekiel Elliott said he grew up in a household that did not believe in vaccines, but he got the COVID-19 vaccine regardless. “Just because I wanted to put myself in the best situation to be out there for my team week in and week out,” he said. “But I mean not everyone feels that strongly or maybe other people still have their view of vaccines. You can't force someone to do something that they don't to do to their body.”

Ezekiel Elliott's motivation has been clear by the offseason workouts he posted to social media. “Just having the year I had last year, I don't really no more motivation than that," he said. "I just know the type of player I am and I don't think I showed that last year. I've got a lot to prove. I just made sure I didn't leave any doubt out there that I didn't do as much as I needed to do.”

The Cowboys will place Amari Cooper (ankle), DeMarcus Lawrence (back), Trysten Hill (knee), Greg Zuerlein (back), Mitch Hyatt (knee) and Chauncey Golston (hamstring) on the physically unable to perform list as training camp opens, according to a source. Hill might need more time in his rehab from a torn ACL, as will Hyatt, but the others are not expected to miss much time. Receiver T.J. Vasher will go on the non-football injury list as he is still recovering from a knee injury.
