Texas Rangers trying to help Dak Prescott stay on the field this season
By Seth Carlson
Dak Prescott has a “baseball” injury, so of course he and the Dallas Cowboys turned to… the Texas Rangers for medical advice?
According to Fox Sports NFL insider Jay Glazer, the Cowboys’ QB suffered a strain near his armpit area during training camp, which has been deemed a lat strain, a common baseball injury for pitchers who also do lots of throwing during the season.

So naturally, the Texas Rangers’ medical staff would be experts on the subject matter, right?
Jerry Jones seems to think so, as he explained to the media what the Rangers told him should be the course of action with his franchise quarterback during the recovery process.
"“We talked about throwing, arm care and arm recovery,” Jones said. “They advised rather than work through a progression on healing but to go cold turkey to make sure the injury is repaired.”"
Dak Prescott and the Dallas Cowboys sought out medical advice from the Texas Rangers
It’s definitely interesting that the Cowboys would turn to the lowly Rangers for help on anything, seeing as the DFW area professional baseball team’s lack of winning in 2021 probably doesn’t inspire much confidence in their abilities across the board. Not to mention, the Rangers have injuries of their own to manage.
But professionals are professionals, and it’s good to see the two franchises helping each other out in any event.
Did we mention that Dak Prescott happens to be a fan of the now demoted second baseman Nick Solak? He’s shown up to a couple games at Globe Life Field this season, so the Rangers-Cowboys connection is pretty strong.
Cowboys team officials are unsure whether Prescott will be able to play in the upcoming preseason, especially after the advice the Texas Rangers gave him to shut throwing activities down for a period of time.
No, the baseball team isn’t trying to sabotage the football team. It’s all about proper rest and recovery so that when Dak Prescott is ready to take the field once again, Dallas Cowboys fans can thank the Texas Rangers for returning their signal caller to top physical form.
