Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said he expects Moore to serve as Tony Romo's top backup in 2016, the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports.

EDGE Analysis

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.

Moore rebounded from last week's poor performance by completing 33-of-48 passes for a career-high 435 yards, three touchdowns and two interceptions against the Redskins on Sunday.

EDGE Analysis

Moore piled up yardage in his second career NFL start after looking completely inept against the Bills last week. The former Boise State star will have to cut down on his mistakes if he wants to find success at the NFL level, as his 4:6 touchdown-to-interception ratio through three appearances leaves much to be desired.

Moore completed just 13 of 31 passes for 186 yards and an interception in Sunday's loss to the Bills.

EDGE Analysis

The 26-year-old found a rough go of it in his first NFL start, with Dez Bryant on the sidelines, although he managed to limit the interceptions after tossing three versus the Jets last week. Moore figures to remain the starter for the season finale versus the first-place Redskins, but he shouldn't be relied upon to produce in any fantasy format.

Moore has been named the Cowboys' starting quarterback for Sunday's game against the Bills, NFL.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Moore replaced teammate Matt Cassel during the second quarter of Saturday's loss to the Jets, and went on to throw for 158 yards, one touchdown and three interceptions. While those numbers are rather underwhelming, Saturday's loss finally eliminated the Cowboys from playoff contention, thus giving Dallas' coaching staff an opportunity to evaluate their roster over the final two regular season games. Compared to the 33-year-old Cassel, Moore is far more of a long-term prospect at quarterback, so the Cowboys will give him more chances to impress while leading their offense Sunday against the Bills.

Moore entered Saturday's game early in the second quarter, replacing an ineffectual Matt Cassell in a 19-16 loss to the Jets.

EDGE Analysis

Moore completed 15-of-25 passes for 158 yards, a touchdown and three interceptions. The loss officially eliminated Dallas from the postseason, so, with nothing to play for, head coach Jason Garrett may roll with Moore in the final two games of the season.

Cowboys head coach Jason Garrett said that Matt Cassel will remain the starter for now, the Dallas Morning News reports.

EDGE Analysis

There's been a growing clamor to give Moore a chance as the season spirals down the drain, but with the Cowboys not yet officially eliminated from the postseason Garrett will stick with the veteran. Moore hasn't thrown a pass in the NFL in four seasons, but he could get a look under center once the team's focus shifts to 2016.

Moore will be promoted from the practice squad to serve as Matt Cassel's backup for the remainder of the season, the Ft. Worth Star-Telegram reports.

EDGE Analysis

The former Boise St. standout has yet to take a regular season snap in the NFL, but Moore could see some work if and when the Cowboys are officially eliminated from playoff contention in the weak NFC East and begin looking ahead to 2016.

Moore was waived by the Cowboys on Tuesday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

EDGE Analysis

Moore was never a serious candidate to take over the starting job in Dallas when Tony Romo (collarbone) went down in September and Tuesday's removal from the team confirms this notion. The former Boise State standout is still looking for his first NFL appearance, and now he's in search of another backup quarterback job somewhere in the league, although there's no guarantee he'll be able to catch on elsewhere.

The Cowboys activated Moore from the practice squad, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

EDGE Analysis

After putting a number of signal-callers through a tryout Tuesday -- namely, Christian Ponder, Matt Flynn, Josh Johnson, and McLeod Bethel-Thompson -- the Cowboys have opted to promote the in-house candidate. Expect Moore to compete with newcomer Matt Cassel for the backup QB gig to Brandon Weeden, which could provide Moore's first NFL snap during Tony Romo's (shoulder) extended stay on the sideline.

Moore has been signed to the Cowboys practice squad, the Dallas Morning News reports.

EDGE Analysis

He rejoins Scott Linehan in Dallas after being released by the Lions. Moore likely won't have any value this season unless disaster strikes the Cowboys, but after a year in the system he could replace Brandon Weeden as Tony Romo's backup in 2016.
