Prescott will be a free agent at the end of the season and Cowboys vice president Stephen Jones said the team’s plans for Prescott’s future have “absolutely not” changed in the aftermath of the injury.
“He’s the face of our franchise and we know he’ll overcome this,” Jones said (via Jori Epstein of USA Today).
