Dak Prescott injured his right hand in the second quarter of the Cowboys’ 38-14 win over the Redskins on Thursday, but the quarterback says his hand is going to be just fine.
Prescott remained in the game and played through what was later diagnosed as a “bruised hand.” X-rays came back negative, and he did not miss a snap.
“It just swelled up,” Prescott said, per ESPN.com. “I was fine. Got great trainers and doctors, wrapped it up, fixed it up, and we’re good to go.”
Despite the injury, Prescott led the Cowboys to their first win since early November. Prescott passed for 102 yards with two touchdown passes and completed 11 of 22 passes.
If Prescott could not return to the game, the Cowboys were prepared to put in rookie Cooper Rush, but coach Jason Garrett credited Prescott’s toughness for getting back on the field right away.
