Quarterback controversies are football fans’ guilty pleasure, and an unexpected one may be emerging in Dallas.
Undrafted rookie free agent Cooper Rush got snaps with the second-team offense at practice Monday, two days after another impressive preseason showing.
The former Central Michigan star’s emergence has led some to question whether Kellen Moore’s spot as the backup to Dak Prescott might be in jeopardy.
Cowboys coach Jason Garrett said Tuesday (via the Dallas Morning News) that Rush is in line to get more work with the second team and assessed the rookie’s work so far this way: Take advantage of opportunities when you have them. Be ready. Be prepared. He’s done that from minute one.

Cutler, who had retired in May, finished his night 3 of 6 for 24 yards. The 34-year-old quarterback seemed very comfortable in the offense of head coach Adam Gase, who was Cutler’s offensive coordinator in 2015 while they were both with the Bears.

Running mostly a no-huddle, shotgun offense, Cutler was able to call his own plays. Penalties caused each of his drives to stall, but Cutler did not really show any rust and had pretty good timing with receivers he’s only been working with for 10 days.
It was just one game, a preseason contest at that, but the Dolphins portion of Cutler’s career is off to a good start.
