Women's jersey

FRISCO -- Cowboys offensive coordinator Scott Linehan said Wednesday his five-year relationship with Kellen Moore and the age and inexperience of Cooper Rush won't factor into who ultimately lands the team's backup quarterback job.

Moore entered training camp as the Cowboys' clear-cut backup behind Dak Prescott. But Rush has outperformed Moore in camp practices and through the first three preseason games.

"I just think he's got that moxie, kind of that quiet confidence,<strong>Womens Mackensie Alexander Jersey</strong>," Linehan said. "He has a really good grasp of how to play the position."

Linehan will be one of the lead voices in the room deciding who plays backup quarterback once final roster cuts are made Sept. 2.

Linehan has worked with Moore since 2012 when the quarterback signed with Detroit after going undrafted out of Boise State and Linehan was the offensive coordinator for the Lions at the time.

Linehan was asked if his strong relationship with Moore makes it tough for him to consider Rush for the backup job.

Moore played in three games in 2015 for the Cowboys and missed all of last season after fracturing his right leg early on in training camp. But he was slated to be the Cowboys' backup heading into camp in 2016 ahead of Prescott. Moore knows the Cowboys' offense well and helped Prescott as a rookie a year ago.

Rush is five years younger than Moore and has yet take a snap in a regular-season NFL game. But Linehan said he won't overlook Rush just because he's young.
