Despite losing their star quarterback Dak Prescott to injury, the Dallas Cowboys are currently at 1-1.
The season-opener was a loss for Prescott and his Cowboys to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. The team was able to bounce back with Cooper Rush, their backup quarterback, as they defeated the Cincinnati Bengals.
Rush could be retained even if Prescott is healthy, if he continues to play well. Jones was very clear when asked whether he wanted a quarterback controversy.
“Of course I would. If he comes in here and plays as well as Prescott played. If Rush played that well with these next games ahead, I’d walk to New York to get that.”

Jerry Jones wouldn’t mind a QB controversy between Dak Prescott and Cooper Rush. He said he’d walk to New York if it meant Rush played so well going forward that the Cowboys had a tough decision to make pic.twitter.com/3aG98I3Fx5

Prescott would be able to play if he is healthy and available to go, but it’s hard to believe that the Cowboys would keep him on the sidelines.
But, everything is possible if Cooper Rush plays well and the Cowboys roll.
