The Dallas Cowboys are reportedly planning to make a change to their quarterback roster ahead of Sunday's game against the Philadelphia Eagles.
Brandon George of the Dallas Morning News is now reporting that the Cowboys intend to activate quarterback Mark Sanchez to back up starter Dak Prescott, presumably leaving Tony Romo on the sidelines.
The Cowboys will not be playing Prescott for the entire game and, while it's merely speculation, it does appear that the motive here is to protect Romo. Sanchez is a veteran quarterback who spent the last two seasons with the aforementioned Eagles where he played a total of 13 games.
He is unfortunately likely best known for his "butt-fumble" as a member of the New York Jets.
