Dallas Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott suffered a devastating ankle injury on Sunday after an awkward fall against the New York Giants.
As Prescott was attended to on the field and helped into the cart to be taken off the field, Jason Garrett, his former coach and current offensive coordinator for the New York Giants, rushed over to stand with Cowboys head coach Mike McCarthy and check in on his longtime quarterback.
