Dak Prescott is optimistic the shoulder strain he suffered during Wednesday's practice won't have long-term consequences.

"So, I know I will be fine. I know I am doing the treatment. I am doing everything necessary to make sure I will be just fine," Prescott said, according to ESPN's Todd Archer. "I am not worried about that. It's not anything I worry about lingering or causing problems. Not even near the same aspect of the ankle and the time I had to take from that."

The Dallas Cowboys quarterback said he left Wednesday's practice out of precaution and believes the injury may have been caused by not warming up correctly.

"I didn't want to work through (the injury) and making something small worse and bigger than it has to be," Prescott said.

Though Prescott isn't expected to throw for a few more days, he thinks the injury wouldn't stop him from playing had it happened during the regular season.

"I think I'd do whatever is necessary and take the steps that were needed to make sure I was ready for Sunday if that's when it was or Monday or whenever the game would be," Prescott said.

He added: "I know I'd get myself there one way or the other and be able to perform the way I want to."

The 27-year-old is set to be reevaluated Monday, and the team will be patient with him, according to head coach Mike McCarthy.

Prescott signed a four-year, $160-million contract with the Cowboys this offseason. He missed most of the 2020 campaign after sustaining a compound ankle fracture and dislocation.
