  • Cowboys' Ben DiNucci: Remains with Dallas

    The Cowboys signed DiNucci to a reserve/future contract Monday. DiNucci failed to make the team's 53-man roster ahead of the regular season and spent the entirety of the 2021 campaign on the team's practice squad. The quarterback appeared in three games in 2020 and completed 23 of 43 passes for 219 yards while starter Dak Prescott was out due to a season-ending ankle injury. The seventh-round pick will have another opportunity to find a full-time backup role with Dallas this coming offseason.

  • Ben DiNucci: Resurfaces on practice squad

    The Cowboys signed DiNucci to the practice squad Wednesday. DiNucci couldn't beat out Cooper Rush for the No. 2 spot behind Dak Prescott (shoulder), but he will get a chance to continue his development with the Cowboys. The 2020 seventh-round pick underwhelmed in three appearances last season.

  • Cowboys' Ben DiNucci: Expected to start again Sunday

    DiNucci is expected to start Sunday's game versus the Steelers following news that Andy Dalton (concussion) was placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list Tuesday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports. Dalton won't be able to return by Sunday, so DiNucci is in line for a second straight start. His start against the Eagles this past Sunday was ugly, as he completed 21 of 40 passes for 180 yards (4.5 yards per attempt) and no touchdowns. He didn't throw an interception, but he was sacked four times and lost two fumbles. The rookie's matchup this week will be even tougher, as the Steelers lead the league with 30 sacks and rank second with 13 turnovers through seven games.

  • Cowboys' Ben DiNucci: Fails to seize opportunity

    DiNucci completed 21 of 40 pass attempts for 180 yards, no touchdowns and two lost fumbles in Sunday's 23-9 loss to the Eagles. DiNucci received the first start of his career, but was given a rude awakening by the Eagles' defensive unit. The 2020 seventh-round pick did not get any help from his battered and bruised offensive line, as he was often under duress mere moments after receiving the snap. The handful of times DiNucci received a clean pocket, he proved to be indecisive and held on to the ball too long, taking four sacks in total on the night. The rookie was blunt during the post-game presser, stating that "this NFL thing; it's hard." Nothing appeared to come easy for anybody on Dallas' offense with DiNucci at the helm, but a potential Week 9 return for veteran quarterback Andy Dalton (concussion) offers some hope for a rebound. Fantasy managers probably saw enough from DiNucci to steer clear if he is forced to make another start Sunday, especially considering one of the league's top defensive units waits on deck in the form of a home matchup against the Steelers.

  • Cowboys' Ben DiNucci: Expected to start Sunday night

    With Andy Dalton (concussion) listed as doubtful, DiNucci is expected to get the start Sunday night in Philadelphia, Jon Machota of The Athletic reports. The rookie seventh-round pick won't lack for receiving weapons, but he will be playing behind a shaky O-line against an above-average Eagles pass rush. DiNucci looked overwhelmed when he replaced Dalton in last week's 25-3 loss to Washington, taking sacks on three of his six dropbacks.

  • Cowboys' Ben DiNucci: Early frontrunner for Week 8 start

    DiNucci took all the Cowboys' first-team reps at quarterback during practices Wednesday and Thursday, Michael Gehlken of The Dallas Morning News reports. While Dallas hasn't ruled out Andy Dalton (concussion) from starting this weekend in Philadelphia, the signal-caller has been a non-participant in the first two practices of Week 8. According to Gehlken, Dalton's involvement in Dallas' quarterback meeting Thursday morning marks a step forward for the veteran as he navigates the concussion protocol, but he'll almost certainly need to get some on-field reps in Friday to have a shot at playing against the Eagles. Barring a major turnaround in Dalton's condition in the next day, DiNucci looks poised to make his first career start Sunday after he played 12 snaps in relief of the concussed Dalton in last week's loss to Washington. At this time, little buzz has emerged suggesting that the Cowboys plan to bring in a more experienced option at the position beyond journeyman Garrett Gilbert, who was recently poached from Cleveland's practice squad to serve as the clear No. 2 behind DiNucci.

  • Cowboys' Ben DiNucci: Struggles as injury replacement

    DiNucci completed two of three pass attempts for 39 yards during Sunday's 25-3 loss to Washington. DiNucci entered the game after Andy Dalton (concussion) took a shot to the head in the second half and struggled against a ferocious defensive front. He managed a 32-yard completion to Amari Cooper and another short gain, but he also took three sacks and was fortunate to not fumble the ball away on two occasions. The rookie hardly seems ready to lead an NFL offense at this point, so it's likely the team looks outside the organization for a starter if Dalton is unable to play next Sunday night against the Eagles.
