WATCH: Dak Prescott Says He is Trusting ‘God’s Purpose and Plan’ and ‘Thankful That He’s My Savior’ in Video Update After Suffering Ankle Injury

The last time NFL fans saw Dallas Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott, he was being carted off the field in tears after suffering a horrifying right ankle compound fracture and dislocation in a 37-34 win over the New York Giants. The injury will keep him out for at least the rest of the season.

That was Sunday. On Thursday, a smiling Prescott posted an Instagram video on his way to the doctor to see his leg for the first time since his surgery Sunday night. In the video, he thanked fans, teammates, friends and family for the overwhelming support he’s received in the last week. He said it has helped him stay motivated to recover as soon as possible.

“What’s up everyone, I just wanted everyone to know that I’m doing well,” Prescott said, “and I can’t thank you enough for all your love, your support, your prayers over the last few days. They’ve been more than overwhelming.”

He continued later, “I’m just excited — excited for God’s purpose and plan. I know it’s bigger than anything that I see or I could have imagined, but I’m trusting Him. 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 this will be possible and all this will be a great comeback and a great story.”

Prescott wrote, “Everything has a Purpose! FAITH GodsPlan” as the video’s caption.
