When Dallas Cowboys starting quarterback Dak Prescott went down for the season with an ankle injury, the team knew it had veteran Andy Dalton and rookie seventh round draft pick Ben DiNucci to back him up. Last week, the back up plan went up in smoke when Dalton suffered a concussion after a dirty hit was laid on him while sliding against the Washington Football Team. Have no fear, a familiar face is on his way back to Dallas.

The Cowboys are signing their former back up quarterback Cooper Rush to their practice squad and he will be eligible to practice next week after completing all of the protocols set in place.

Rush has familiarity with the offense and can serve as a mentor to DiNucci while the Cowboys await the return of Dalton after he passes through concussion protocol.
