Prescott, who raised his right hand in acknowledgement as he left the field, was later diagnosed with a compound fracture and dislocation. He will have surgery Sunday night.
Prescott was off to a record-setting start to the season with three straight games for 450 yards passing. He entered the week with 1,690 passing yards, a league-best and the most by a Cowboys quarterback in through four games in team history.
