Dallas quarterback looks to ‘God’s plan’ after season-ending injury

The NFL season ended early for Dallas Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott after a devastating injury. However, he hasn’t lost the positive attitude and faith in God that have contributed to his success.

A smiling and upbeat Prescott recorded an Instagram video on Oct. 15 updating Dallas fans on his health, saying he is “excited for God’s purpose and God’s plan.”

“I know it’s bigger than anything that I see or could have imagined. But I’m trusting Him,” Prescott said. “My faith is doubled down more than ever, and I’m thankful that He’s my Savior and He guides me in life, so I know through Him, all of this will be possible and all this will be a great comeback and a great story.”

Prescott recorded the video while he was on his way to a medical checkup, post-surgery. He said he’s “doing well” and in “great spirits” after the injury and surgery.

“I can’t thank you enough for all your love, your support, your prayers over the last few days,” he said. “They’ve been more than overwhelming – from teammates to family, to friends, to fans I don’t know, to former and current players around the league, and players around all sports, I just want to say thank you. They’re definitely appreciated and received well, so just know that that much love and support out there makes a huge difference.

“I’m just ready to start this road to a comeback. I know .. this little adversity is just going to be another chapter in the book. I’m excited to move forward and write it. I just, once again, can’t thank you all enough for your love and your support through it all. But I’m in great spirits. I’m gonna stay that way. I’m looking forward to this football season – seeing the game in a different perspective and supporting my teammates and those around the league that need it. I’m ready to get this journey of the comeback started. God bless you all.”
