Dallas will be without veteran QB Andy Dalton again this week and potentially longer after he was placed on the COVID-19 list. Cowboys seventh-round QB Ben DiNucci started this past week and was disastrous.

Rush just rejoined the team a few days ago, but he has some experience in the system after a few years as Dallas’ third-string quarterback. 

Rush, 26, went undrafted out of Central Michigan back in 2017. He later signed a three-year, $1.66 million contract with the Cowboys and managed to make the 53-man roster all three seasons.

Rush signed his $2.1 million restricted free agent offer after being tendered by the Cowboys this offseason. He was later waived and claimed by the Giants before agreeing to a restructured deal.

New York added Rush to their practice squad before releasing him a few weeks ago. 

For his career, Rush has appeared in five games for the Cowboys, completing one of three pass attempts for two yards. He has also rushed for 13 yards.

We’ll have more on the Cowboys quarterback situation as the news is available.
