Jerry Jones backs Cowboys QB Cooper Rush amid Jimmy Garoppolo exchange rumors - NBC activities

With Dallas Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott expected to leave out significant time this season after sustaining a thumb injury Sunday evening, the NFL world directly all started speculating whether or no longer Dallas may emerge as making a change for a certain 49ers backup.

but as instantly because the Jimmy Garoppolo-to-Dallas rumors began, have they already been shut down?

Cowboys owner Jerry Jones seemingly put ideas of a change for Garoppolo -- or any quarterback, for that be counted -- to bed Sunday when talking to Jori Epstein of u . s . a . these days sports after his team's 19-three loss to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Dallas backup quarterback Cooper Rush accomplished Sunday's video game after Prescott got here out. The Cowboys' QB1 would require surgical procedure on his throwing hand and reportedly may omit six to eight weeks, however Jones believes Rush nevertheless gives the crew an opportunity to be successful in the meantime.

"He can play at a degree that we are able to win ball video games," Jones told Epstein. "The leading factor about him as a backup quarterback is we didn't must alter the offense to have him. That's a good component to have continuity. That's the main cause he gained the job. simply count number on him. He threw a couple of respectable balls out there."

Garoppolo definitely is seen by way of many as an upgrade, ability- and adventure-intelligent, for Dallas over Rush, who comprehensive the Cowboys' loss to the Bucs by using completing 7 of 13 passes for sixty four yards and not using a touchdowns or interceptions.

but Garoppolo wouldn't be in a position to provide that continuity Jones said, whereas Rush has been with the Cowboys considering that they signed him as an undrafted rookie in 2017. One quarterback would want numerous time to learn the offense, whereas the other is aware of the playbook internal and out.

Rush has seemed in 12 Cowboys video games and began as soon as, leading Dallas to a 20-16 win over the Minnesota Vikings closing season whereas Prescott turned into sidelined with a calf pressure.

The situation the 28-12 months-historical sign-caller finds himself in this season is much distinct when it involves the players he's surrounded by. however Jones believes Rush has a chance to prove himself, telling Epstein that the predicament reminds him of Prescott's rookie 12 months when he started Week 1 in area of an injured Tony Romo.

"Candidly, we need to examine it, and i don't see this within the horizon, however I'm going to make use of it for instance, of how I felt when Tony Romo went down against Seattle," Jones instructed Epstein. "and how I felt two and a half, three months later, in case you needed to make a decision even if Tony turned into starting or Dak."

To be compared to each Romo and Prescott shows how extremely Jones values Rush's ability set. And if there's anybody a quarterback wants singing his praises, it's the owner of the crew he plays for.

Jones' vocal assist of Rush seems to dispel any suggestion that the crew could trade for Garoppolo, and the 49ers veteran would have to approve any deal for him as part of his restructured contract with San Francisco.

On Monday, NFL Media's Ian Rapoport turned into on KNBR's "Murph & Mac" display and noted he isn't hearing any interest out of Dallas when it comes to Garoppolo. Rapoport mentioned the 49ers might not wish to movement their backup quarterback after the crew's terrible offensive displaying with Trey Lance below center in opposition t the Chicago Bears on Sunday.

"I comprehend it's Trey's group and that they basically have moved on, but one week, change away your backup?" Rapoport spoke of. "except you're going to get a really respectable return, like a 3rd-rounder or something legit, I'm not certain it makes feel for the 49ers."

He added that whereas Rush is an unknown backup in evaluation to Garoppolo, it's clear the Cowboys consider he's the answer within their device. 

"They're going to supply Cooper Rush a shot, he's going to delivery," Rapoport referred to. "And if Dak is out two months and Cooper Rush can't do it, maybe they alternate for Garoppolo. but I don't be aware of if it makes sense to alternate a premium draft select for like, a month of games."

It seems like when it involves buying and selling Garoppolo -- to Dallas or any place else -- the 49ers devoted will simply should wait and notice if a deal emerges.

but howdy, they've gotten fairly respectable at that in contemporary months. appropriate?
