Silver Star Nation: Cooper Rush Continues to Emerge - August 29, 2017

The Hay is in the Barn for the Dallas Cowboys

The hay is in the barn for the Dallas Cowboys.

After wrapping up practice today, the Cowboys have officially wrapped up training camp. All that's left for this week is a welcome home luncheon tomorrow at AT&T Stadium followed by welcoming the Houston Texans to the same spot on Thursday night.

The Cowboys put the finishing touches on their game preps today and that included head coach Jason Garrett loosening up the old shoulder just in case. Free agent quarterback Cooper Rush has been the talk of the town and social media as he continues to make a push for that backup spot. Fifteen years ago tight end Jason Witten rode the bus to training camp and befriended a different free agent quarterback who turned out to be pretty good - Tony Romo.  

"The thing that reminds me of Tony, he has a play like a fumble or interception and he just bounces back," says Witten. "And you know...that's hard to do." 

"I don't look at Cooper and think of myself," says quarterback Dak Prescott. "I look at Cooper and all the great things he's done."

Cooper Rush will have one more chance to do great things on Thursday. Head Coach Jason Garrett says he does not know who will start at quarterback against the Texans but we do know it won't be Prescott. They will be saving him for the September 10 season opener against the New York Giants.
