Dallas Cowboys: Who is Cooper Rush’s replacement for Dak Prescott?

The Dallas Cowboys started the new NFL season with terrible news. The Cowboys were dominated 19-3 by Tom Brady and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, and the worst thing that could have happened to Texas was the injury of their quarterback, Dak Prescott, who ended up with discomfort in his hand.

After the game, team owner and general manager Jerry Jones confirmed the worst in the locker room. Prescott would have to undergo surgery and would not be able to play for four weeks at the most.

Prescott’s place would be taken by Cooper Rush, who is this quarterback?
Cooper Rush is a graduate of Central Michigan University, started 49 games, and had 12 thousand yards through the air and 90 touchdowns.

However, the Cowboys saw talent in him and signed him in free agency. In Dallas, he did not have many opportunities and went to the New York Giants for five months, but when he did not get playing time either, he returned to the Cowboys.

Rush made his NFL debut with Dallas in Week 8 of last season against the Minnesota Vikings, where he completed 24 passes in 40 attempts for 325 yards for two touchdowns. He replaced Dak Prescott because Prescott had a calf strain.

Rush records just one career start and adding up all his appearances has a 93.9 rating, with 38 of 63 pass completions (60.3%) for 488 yards, 3 touchdowns and 1 interception.

“Since the end of his rookie year, Coop has always been the player I’ve looked to, whether it’s in this game or just looking for help,” said Dak Prescott. “Now I’ll be able to help him over the next few weeks, hopefully bringing the best out of him and the team.”

“He can play at a level where we can win games. The main reason we have him as a backup quarterback is that we don’t have to change the offense. It’s good to have continuity. We’re counting on him,” he said. some good balls,” Jones told USA Today.

Dallas will not hire another quarterback

“As of now, the Cowboys do not plan to pursue a significant trade for a QB, barring unforeseen changes, per source,” Fowler wrote on Twitter Tuesday. “The Cowboys won’t rule out any possibility entirely, but with Dak Prescott’s improved timeline and Cooper Rush’s familiarity with the offense, the team feels it can be patient.”

Dallas has full confidence in two things: that Prescott won’t be out for eight weeks and that Rush will do well because he knows the Cowboys’ offensive system well.
