The Dallas Cowboys may not make another move at quarterback.
CowboysSI reports that the Cowboys plan to have Cooper Rush replace Dak Prescott while he heals from a right thumb fracture. Prescott will be out of action for six to eight weeks after he has his surgery.
Rush is aware that Prescott needs him to lead the charge and seems eager for that chance.
“Just go do your job,” Rush said. “Just execute. It’s the same plays, it’s the same other guys, we’ve still got everyone else.”
Rush is currently in his fifth season as a Cowboys player. Rush has appeared in eight games over that period and has amassed 488 yards of passing, three touchdowns and one interception.
As the Cowboys attempt to win the championship, he’ll be making his ninth appearance against Cincinnati Bengals.
Kickoff will take place at 4:25 p.m. ET.
