Of course, I've noticed that the same kind of logic the OP used is used by fans on here concerning free agents. If a player was bad last year because of injury, then he's a bad player, according to the logic. We're assuming that Prescott comes back and picks up where he left off or even gets better. I don't think that's a faulty assumption. I'm not sure what it's worth contractwise, though. Generally, when players have a bad or injury-plagued season, it does lower their value some. It doesn't mean they are going to play poorly, just that there is some slight risk that they won't bounce back and be as good.
