Cowboys’ Dak Prescott protector receives painful injury update ahead of 2023 NFL season

Dallas Cowboys guard/tackle Josh Ball suffered an injury during Sunday's preseason game against 

the Las Vegas Raiders, leaving the team without one of its crucial Dak Prescott protectors.

Ball was injured during the Cowboys' opening offensive drive against the Raiders and was forced to leave the field. 

Initial reports on the injury were not encouraging, and head coach Mike McCarthy verified all of the concerns on Monday, 

saying that the problem is "significant" enough to cost the 25-year-old offensive lineman "multiple weeks," according to CBS Sports.

While McCarthy did not specify how long Ball will be out, a recent report said he could be gone for around two months, 

according to Michael Gehlken of the Dallas Morning News. Ball, it appears, had a soft tissue damage in his hip-groin area. Fortunately, 

it does not appear that he will require surgery."It is expected that Josh Ball will avoid surgery."
