The Dallas Cowboys have a major issue at quarterback moving forward after Dak Prescott fractured his right thumb in Sunday night’s loss to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
Cooper Rush is slated to be the quarterback and Will Grier as his backup going forward.
ESPN star Stephen A. Smith floated the possibility of the team taking a look at Colin Kaepernick.
“You know what, this is a different subject for another day maybe. It will never happen, in my opinion … might want to make that call to Colin Kaepernick,” Smith said on “First Take” Monday. “Might want to find out. He ain’t been around but he’s a playmaker with his legs who’s available, you gotta take that into consideration.”
“But I would think about it, I would say that. But getting back to reality, because I don’t think that’s reality,” he added.
Michael Irvin, the former Cowboys superstar wide receiver completely brushed off the narrative of Kaepernick playing in the NFL.
“Let’s stop with this Colin Kaepernick stuff. Let’s just stop. Colin Kaepernick’s been out of football for what five years now,” Irvin said. “Come on, man. Let’s stop all of a sudden thinking we can go resurrect Colin Kaepernick and he’s going to come and resurrect a football team. I’ll take my chances with Cooper Rush. I will take my chances with Cooper Rush.
“I saw Cooper Rush win a football game last year. That’s all I’m saying.”
