QB - DAL
Week 13 Outlook
Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports the Cowboys are considering starting Cooper Rush at quarterback for their Week 9 matchup against the Steelers.
Andy Dalton was recently placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list, which rules him out for Sunday's game. Ben DiNucci started in Week 8 and predictably flopped, so Dallas might make another switch. Starting Rush would mean that Dallas has to activate him from the practice squad.
The New York Giants have claimed QB Cooper Rush off waivers after he was released by the Cowboys.
Rush was a part of the Cowboys organization for three years prior to being waived last week when Dallas signed Andy Dalton to a one-year deal. The former Central Michigan quarterback will look to compete for the backup or third-string role behind Daniel Jones in New York.
Cowboys backup quarterback Cooper Rush did not play in the team's preseason finale against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Thursday.
If there was ever any doubt that Rush is the backup in Dallas, it was put to bed with the team resting him in Thursday's preseason finale.
Cowboys backup quarterback Cooper Rush completed 15 of 25 passes for 173 yards, no touchdowns, and no interceptions in Saturday's preseason game against the Houston Texans.
Rush has had an excellent preseason for Dallas and appears to be locked into the top backup role to starter Dak Prescott.
