Mississippi State: QB Prescott injured in concert fight
JACKSON- Mississippi State quarterback Dak Prescott was injured during a fight at a concert in Panama City, Florida, on Monday afternoon while vacationing during spring break, a school spokesman said.
Bill Martin said he spoke with Prescott about the fight, which also involved teammates Torrey Dale and Damian Williams. Martin said Prescott suffered facial cuts after being hit with a bottle, but did not have to go to the hospital and police were not involved.
Martin said Prescott did not want to press charges and the three players are headed back to Starkville.
Prescott sent a message on Twitter Monday night that said “Thanks for all the Concerns and Prayers! I’m okay and ready to get back to Starkville. Ignorance happens! Be safe on Spring Break!”
Prescott threw for 3,449 yards and 27 touchdowns last season while also running for 986 yards and 14 touchdowns. Mississippi State finished with a 10-3 record during a season that also included a five-week stretch as the No. 1 team in the nation.
