The Dallas Cowboys have yet to figure out a very important position for 2021: backup quarterback.
The Cowboys are expected to have Dak Prescott behind center in Week 1, when Dallas opens against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. However, Prescott has been dealing with a shoulder injury throughout training camp. It remains to be seen if he’ll be 100 percent by Week 1 – or at any point in 2021.
“He’s not fully back. He may not be back all season long,” ESPN’s Adam Schefter said of Prescott on Friday night.
The Cowboys have Garrett Gilbert, Cooper Rush and Ben DiNucci behind Prescott on the depth chart. Neither are very proven options for the backup job.
Cowboys head coach Mike McCarthy shared an honest admission on the competition this weekend.
“We have one more week, and we’re going to need it,” McCarthy said, per the Cowboys’ official team website.
The Cowboys could always look for a trade option, too. Colin Cowherd has two notable suggestions for the Cowboys.
“Dallas needs to get on the phone. It’s called Nick Foles or Gardner Minshew.”

Neither Foles nor Minshew are expected to play much – if at all – for their respective teams.
The Cowboys are scheduled to open the regular season on Thursday, Sept. 9 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
