The Dallas Cowboys have announced that Cooper Rush will be quarterback No. 2 behind Dak Prescott.
Prescott suffered a shoulder injury at the start of training camp and sat out the entire preseason.
While Prescott was out, Garrett Gilbert started three of four games at the quarterback position.
Gilbert, as well 2020 seventh-round pick Ben DiNucci, didn’t impress and on Monday they got cut by the Cowboys.
“I just think he (Rush) has shown that he can run the complete offense,” Cowboys owner and general manager Jerry Jones said on 105.3 The Fan in Dallas. “Credit to him. He had some tough competition. Those guys didn’t cut him any slack. He’s had a lot of reps. All of our quarterbacks had because of the absence of Dak. All of those things make us feel real comfortable here.”
