Prescott is playing under the franchise tag this season after he was unable to work out a long-term deal with the Cowboys. Many have wondered how his ankle injury will impact contract negotiations, but both Jerry and Stephen Jones have made it seem like it will not be a factor at all.
Prescott suffered a compound fracture and ankle dislocation after being dragged to the turf on Sunday. He underwent successful surgery this week and is expected to be sidelined for 4-6 months.
