Prescott and Hurst, whose own battle with depression led to a suicide attempt, vowed to work together in the future. The Cowboys star said Thursday that plans are already in motion.

"Such a moment. Obviously excited after a big win like that but for him to just come over there, us embrace that moment," Prescott said of the discussion with Hurst. "He was telling me about what him and his mom are doing with their foundation. I'm excited to work with him. We've talked since. Excited in the offseason for us to get something going. Our teams have already started making steps to do that while we're in the midst of the season."

Prescott sought help for his mental health issues this past offseason after his older brother Jace's suicide.

The quarterback has been widely applauded for opening up about his struggles. Green Bay Packers signal-caller Aaron Rodgers added his voice to that chorus of praise Wednesday, calling Prescott's willingness to be openly vulnerable "true courage."

Prescott said he was grateful that Rodgers spoke out.

"I appreciate those, and I respect Aaron," Prescott said. "(I) respect Aaron as much as probably any other quarterback we have in this league. Obviously his game, but for him to just come out (and) say what he said, and (I) loved what he said about people's personal things don't affect any of us, how we feel about ourselves. I think that's huge. It's about what you, with self-talks and the stuff you see in your own mind. I thank Aaron for having my support and coming out and speaking as he did."
