Dak had lost his brother and mother before the football season and had been struggling with mental health. He is really a warrior. I would never wish this upon him. Coming from an Eagles fan.

Even as an Eagles fan, this isn't how you want to see someone go down. Even a cowboy.
I’m a cowboys fan I pray to god that he comes back stronger than ever. I love Dak and seeimg a good man like him is heartbreaking. Hopefully his future can be secured and can play again because his attributes on/off is greater than just football. Shoutout out to Brian for making an intellectual and informative video.

This was gross to watch live. This ripped the life out of the Cowboys team, and you can tell from how they've been playing recently. Prayers for Dak, and I hope he has a quick recovery.

I had a compound fracture and crushed 15 bones in my foot leaving me with 2 fusions. My heart goes out to him and I know the pain he's going through. When I saw the video my foot immediately started to throb. I'm praying for a speedy recovery unlike like me, its been 16 years and I'm still hurting.

Dak’s injury was difficult to see. When he was slamming his ankle trying to put it back in place I was saying NO...NO. Though I’m not a Cowboy fan, I really like and respect Dak. Finding out it was a compound fracture made my heart sink. I’m pulling for this young man to make a full recovery. I hope you give us an update Doc after finding out how much more serious this injury was.

As someone who suffered a similar injury to my left ankle while running down stairs some years ago, I found this video very informative.
I never heard any detailed explanation like this before and after surgery and during the long rehab; it certainly would have helped me understand the extent of my injury.

Damn he took that like a champ..
My question is; do they immediately give a player some sorta shot/pain killer on the field for something like that?

I couldn't even watch long enough to see him try to snap it back in on his own. Once I seen that bone, I turned away and said a prayer. I actually had a similar but not as severe injury in his. My foot went the other way tho. I'm pretty sure I had less damage and it took me 7 weeks to walk again. That ankle still looking like a horse ankle to this day. I was able to immediately snap mine back in place on my own. Hope they were able to get his back in on the field. This shit brought back some shitty memories. I hope guy is able to bounce back from this.
