Dallas Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott is expected to omit six to eight weeks after requiring surgery on his correct thumb, in keeping with ESPN NFL Nation reporter Todd Archer (by the use of ESPN's Adam Schefter), leaving Cooper Rush because the current beginning choice for the team.

however the Cowboys may additionally discover different options at the place, as ESPN's Jeremy Fowler reported on Monday's SportsCenter:

"There don't seem to be lots of alternatives right here, however after asking round, I do are expecting the Cowboys to as a minimum discover them. They like Rush, but if they can discover a clear-cut upgrade, they will at least faucet into it. Now, Jimmy Garoppolo must be alternative No. 1 as a result of he is been accessible. and i'm instructed when the 49ers did the reworked deal with Garoppolo, they did so realizing that he can waive that no-exchange clause in the event that they find a circumstance league-extensive that merits him and may net them a draft decide on. here is an ideal situation they'd be trying to find, so that can also be an choice. Pittsburgh Steelers additionally. Mason Rudolph is available. he's the third-string, but he carried out neatly in the preseason, 5-four-1 as a starter. So he's obtained some pedigree; third-circular decide upon. And James Washington, a large receiver in Dallas that should be coming again soon, played with him at Oklahoma St ate when they connected for all of those touchdowns. So those are two guys that i'm attempting to find."

The Cowboys are aware about what lifestyles with out Prescott looks like. When he suffered a compound fracture and dislocation of his right ankle in the 2020 season, the Cowboys went just 4-7 down the stretch with out him and accomplished 6-10 on the season, lacking the playoffs.

Prescott might not be sidelined for the remainder of the 2022 season, by all accounts, but a negative checklist in his absences might dig the Cowboys into a gap they can not get away. All three of their NFC East opponents opened the season with a win, while the Cowboys begun their crusade with a 19-3 loss to Tom Brady's Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

The schedule isn't about to get any less complicated. forward of the team's Week 9 bye, Dallas faces the defending AFC champion Cincinnati Bengals at domestic, followed by the ny Giants (highway), Washington Commanders (home), defending champion los angeles Rams (highway), Philadelphia Eagles (road), Detroit Lions (home) and Chicago Bears (home).

Two games against super Bowl teams and three divisional matchups is a troublesome ask for Rush, who has began precisely one NFL online game in his career and has thrown for a total of 488 yards, three touchdowns and a decide on.

"simply go do your job," Rush informed journalists after Sunday's loss. "just execute. it be the equal performs, or not it's the identical different guys, we've got nevertheless acquired all and sundry else. I have confidence in those guys, they trust in me, just all come collectively as a gaggle and make plays and execute."

The question is whether or not the Cowboys can come up with the money for to take their chances with Rush, above all when a player like Garoppolo or Rudolph would present much more journey.

Garoppolo is the clear right quarterback doubtlessly on the market, relegated to a backup position on the San Francisco 49ers in the back of Trey Lance. His identify become a constant supply of exchange rumors over the summer season, even though no deal materialized and he transformed his take care of the Niners to come for the 2022 season.

The 30-12 months-old is 33-14 in his career as a starter and led San Francisco to two playoff berths during the past three seasons. while he would still be a downgrade over Prescott, he'd be a gorgeous clear upgrade over Rush and would aid stabilize what may be an otherwise tumultuous period for Dallas.

The Niners will be aware of that as well, although, and will demand a excessive asking cost for his functions. The Cowboys will need to weigh if such a price is price the six to eight video games he is requested to delivery.

The expense they could pay for not making a circulate might also come to be being far more expensive.
