A seventh-round pick in 2020 out of FCS James Madison, DiNucci has the arm strength and mobility to someday be an NFL-caliber quarterback, but he'll need a lot of development time to get there. For now, he'll hold a clipboard or work with the practice squad in Dallas while Dak Prescott and Andy Dalton handle gameday snaps. Read Past Outlooks

Garrett Gilbert will start at quarterback Sunday, while Cooper Rush was elevated from the practice squad to serve as the backup.
