The Dallas Cowboys got some less than fortunate news today, as it appears they will enter the upcoming season without their backup quarterback.
Cowboys' owner/GM confirmed on Tuesday that backup quarterback Kellen Moore broke his ankle at practice on a routine drill.
"We'll take a look at it and address it from here," Jones said after practice, via Jon Machota of the Dallas Morning News. I don't have any comments about what if anything we'll be doing."
According to various sources, Moore dropped back to pass and got his ankle rolled up on during the team portion of practice.
Third-string quarterback Dak Prescott took over drills for the remainder of the practice.
This is certainly bad news for the team, who struggled to find consistency under center in 2015 after Tony Romo suffered a broken collarbone early in the season.
