Silver Star Nation:53-man roster set

September 4, 2017 - Welcome back to another season of our Silver Star Nation reports. I'm Mickey Spagnola here at the Ford Center where the Cowboys will get back to full time work preparing for that season opener against the Giants on Sunday, and as we know, making a 53-man roster is a fluid situation, and we found that out again on Monday.

The Cowboys decided all along that they were going to place Rico Gathers, the tight end, on injured reserve. That way they could recall him later in the season, and likely to take up his spot will be Kellen Moore, the Cowboys quarterback.

Remember, Kellen Moore was initially released, but because he didn't have to go through waivers, the Cowboys could hang onto him, and tell him, hey we'll sign you back after we make this procedural move with Rico Gathers, and that' what they intend to do.

The Cowboys'll carry three quarterbacks on the 53-man roster, and Cowboys head coach Jason Garrett said they would decide later in the week as it goes along, just who will be the backup quarterback. Don't assume it's Cooper Rush.
