Dak Prescott's comeback from a major ankle injury seems to be going well, unfortunately other parts of his body aren't quite cooperating. 

The Dallas Cowboys quarterback left practice early Wednesday after he felt soreness in his right arm. Ever mindful of his recovery, Prescott didn't press his luck.

"I felt some soreness when making certain throws today, and I really just decided not to push things too far," Prescott said via NFL.com. "Better to be cautious and smart about it. I don't see this as any kind of serious setback. We'll treat it on a daily basis, and I'll be fine."

Prescott had an MRI later in the day, and the results showed that he had a muscle strain.  

Dak throws before shoulder strain

The practice that Prescott left Wednesday was the first padded practice of training camp. Though his shoulder may be bothering him, he got in some throws before exiting. He looked good, especially considering he suffered a compound ankle fracture nine months ago.
