Jerry Jones Talks About Whether Cowboys Will Start Cooper Rush Even When Dak Prescott is Fully Healthy

Is a Quarterback controversy slowly brewing in the Big D?

Dallas Cowboys billionaire owner Jerry Jones recently made headlines when he said he hoped to see Cooper Rush play well enough where it would cause a quarterback controversy. The Cowboys have gone 3-0 with Cooper Rush under center, but that does not mean Dak Prescott is in any danger of losing his job. At least not yet.

During his weekly appearance on 105.3 The Fan this week, Jerry Jones was asked if there is a scenario where the Cowboys could stick with Rush even after Prescott is cleared to return from his thumb injury. Jones kept his answer short.

“We’re just starting the week. Let’s see how the week goes.” said Jones. 

Any chance Cooper Rush starts in favor of a healthy Prescott? “No, no. As I see it right today.”

Prescott reportedly had his stitches removed last week and resumed throwing, but Jones said on Tuesday that the QB still cannot grip the ball well enough to play.

It looks like Cooper Rush will at least be starting one more game for the Cowboys. Dallas is traveling to Los Angeles to take on the Rams in Week 5, and the Rams really need a win after getting shellacked by the Niners on Monday Night Football.

Rush has thrown for 737 yards with four touchdowns and no interceptions but more importantly he has never lost as the Cowboys starter.
