Cooper Rush Active As Backup QB Sunday

Sunday, January 14, 3:15 PM

Dallas Cowboys quarterback Cooper Rush (illness) is officially active for Sunday's playoff game against the Green Bay Packers. He had been listed as questionable after missing practice on Friday. Rush has only played sparingly in garbage-time situations this year, completing 75 percent of his passes for 144 yards, zero touchdowns, and one interception. He'll remain in the backup role behind Dak Prescott this weekend.

Daniel Jones Cleared For Contact, Will Take Every First-Team Rep

Wednesday, July 24, 9:30 AM

According to New York Giants head coach Brian Daboll and general manager Joe Schoen, quarterback Daniel Jones (knee) has been cleared for contact ahead of training camp. The former No. 6 overall pick in the 2019 NFL Draft will participate in 11-on-11 drills this week, something he did not do in the spring. "He will play every snap the (first-team offense) is in," Daboll said. Jones suffered a torn ACL in early November of last year, so he's made a quick recovery and looks to be well on track to start in Week 1 against the Minnesota Vikings. Although Jones has been a below-average signal-caller for most of his career, he could be a value in Superflex drafts assuming his rushing upside is not completely zapped following the major injury. If Malik Nabers lives up to the hype and one of Wan'Dale Robinson or Jalin Hyatt can step up alongside the rookie and Darius Slayton, New York could surpass offensive expectations in 2024.
