Moore re-signed with the Cowboys on Monday. Moore returns to Dallas after spending all of last season on injured reserve due to a broken leg suffered in August. Now fully recovered from that fracture, Moore is currently positioned as the Cowboys' No. 3 quarterback, but with Tony Romo sure to leave the team at some juncture, Moore could compete for Dallas' second-string job behind Dak Prescott during training camp.
Moore (lower leg) is fully recovered from the season-ending leg fracture he suffered last summer, KTVB.com reports. "I'm 100 percent now. It's been good. For the last month or two I've been healthy. I've been able to start doing everything as usual," he elaborated. Moore broke his ankle last August and spent the entire season on injured reserve. However, he appears to have been healthy for a while now and should be fully prepared to hit free agency at the end of the league year in March. The Cowboys like what they have in the Boise State product, so with Mark Sanchez an unrestricted free agent as well and Tony Romo (back) destined for a trade or release, Moore likely possesses the greatest odds of returning as Dak Prescott's backup in 2017.
Moore, who suffered a broken left ankle Tuesday, is expected to miss three to four months, NFL.com reports. Moore is slated to undergo surgery Wednesday to address the issue, which for the moment leaves Dak Prescott and Jameill Showers -- a pair of inexperienced signal-callers -- as the team's backup options behind starting QB Tony Romo.
Moore was carted off the field during Tuesday's practice with a right leg injury. During a drill, Moore appeared to roll up his right ankle after a pass attempt, sending him to the ground. He was seen wearing a soft cast covering his right leg as he left the practice field. Look for an update to come sometime on Wednesday, until then, rookie Dak Prescott is the most likely candidate to take over the No. 2 spot on the depth chart.
Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said he expects Moore to serve as Tony Romo's top backup in 2016, the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports. The Cowboys recently used a fourth-round draft pick on Dak Prescott, who will be groomed as Tony Romo's future backup and possible replacement. The team apparently expects Prescott to spend his first season as the No. 3 quarterback, but he'll probably still get a shot to compete with Moore for the top backup job. Offering neither running ability nor a strong arm, Moore is nothing more than a care-taker.
