NFL quarterback Tony Abbott has spoken out after the Dallas Cowboys quarterback said he has “nothing left to prove” after being injured in training camp.
In an interview with WFAA radio in Dallas, Abbott said he feels like he is “at peace with everything” after his knee surgery in October.
He was injured during a drill at the team’s facility and the Cowboys had to remove him from the field after the drill ended.
Abbott said his knee has been sore for about a week, but he is feeling much better now and that the rehab process will be smooth.
He said he is working with trainers and is trying to “stay positive” while the rehab is going on.
“I’m still learning, but I’m just going to keep working and trying to get better,” he said.
He’s been cleared for full practice and said he hopes to return to action as soon as possible.
Abbot, 26, has been a steady force for the Cowboys in his five-year career.
He has started 23 games, including eight in 2015, and has a career completion percentage of 67.3 percent.
