Cooper Rush | Cowboys QB

The Cowboys are signing Cooper Rush.

While it's a new head coach in Dallas in Mike McCarthy, Rush is familiar with the Cowboys and will provide depth in the quarterback room. He's expected to officially sign with the Cowboys next week because of COVID protocols.

The Giants claimed Cooper Rush.

Rush remains in the NFC East and lands in New York with his former head coach Jason Garrett, who is now the offensive coordinator for the Giants. Rush will compete for the backup job behind franchise quarterback Daniel Jones this summer.

The Cowboys have waived Cooper Rush.

With veteran Andy Dalton now Dallas' backup quarterback, this is not a surprise. The Cowboys are allowing Rush to find a new home soon as he looks to compete for a backup job ahead of the 2020 season. Rush spent the past three years with the Cowboys after going undrafted in 2017, so he did very well for himself to start his NFL career, and it should not take him long to land with another team.

Cooper Rush sees first career NFL action in blowout win.

Rush completed 1/2 passes for two yards and rushed twice for 13 yards. Congrats to Dak Prescott's undrafted rookie backup for making an appearance in a regular season game.

Cooper Rush takes hold of the Cowboys' backup quarterback job.

Rush was recently moved up to the second team, and he got a lot of playing time in the Cowboys' Week 3 preseason game, going 12/13 of 115 yards and two touchdowns. It's obvious Rush, who has impressed since the Hall of Fame Game versus the Cardinals, is now Dak Prescott's backup. Hopefully Prescott stays healthy and Rush won't see the field this season, though.

Cooper Rush was 8/9 for 92 yards and two touchdowns in the Cowboys preseason win.

Rush has outplayed Kellen Moore so far this preseason, and the undrafted rookie is 17/20 for 196 yards and three touchdowns over the past two games. It wouldn't be surprising to see him get more work with the second-team offense at Moore's expense.

Cooper Rush | Cowboys QB

Cooper Rush puts on strong performance in Saturday night's preseason game.

Rush was 9/11 for 104 yards and one touchdown, which was a connection with tight end Rico Gathers. The undrafted rookie could push backup Kellen Moore for #2 duties if he plays well again next week against the Colts. He was 9/18 for 87 yards and a touchdown in the Hall of Fame game.
