Quarterbacks have not been immune to the rash of injuries plaguing the NFL this season. Several teams have had to change their plans and schemes to accommodate losing their top guy for a week or more.
Dallas Cowboys QB Dak Prescott suffered one of the most gruesome injuries in recent memory last week against the New York Giants. He underwent successful surgery and returned to the facility today, per Jon Machota. Prescott will miss the remainder of the season and Dallas will lean on Andy Dalton at quarterback.
