Prescott admitted in a recently published interview that he experienced anxiety and depression early during the nationwide quarantine period.
Hurst dealt with depression and had a suicide attempt, which is why he especially appreciates Prescott opening up. The Cowboys quarterback told the Falcons tight end that they should collaborate on something.
Prescott dealt with some criticism for opening up about his feelings, but Hurst’s comments show plenty of people respect the quarterback for his actions.
