Moore (lower leg) was placed on injured reserve on Tuesday.

EDGE Analysis

Moore broke his left ankle during a practice drill early in the preseason and he'll spend at least a portion of the season on the sideline because of it. The veteran was likely going to be the No. 2 quarterback behind Tony Romo, who is now expected to miss at least half the season with a fractured vertebra. Rookie Dak Prescott, who has impressed many this preseason, now take the reigns under center. Because of the Cowboys' lack of depth at quarterback, Moore could be the perfect candidate to return from the IR mid-season if healthy, as each team is allowed to take one player off the IR after Week 6.

Moore, who suffered a broken left ankle Tuesday, is expected to miss three to four months, NFL.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Moore is slated to undergo surgery Wednesday to address the issue, which for the moment leaves Dak Prescott and Jameill Showers -- a pair of inexperienced signal-callers -- as the team's backup options behind starting QB Tony Romo.

Moore was carted off the field during Tuesday's practice with a right leg injury.

EDGE Analysis

During a drill, Moore appeared to roll up his right ankle after a pass attempt, sending him to the ground. He was seen wearing a soft cast covering his right leg as he left the practice field. Look for an update to come sometime on Wednesday, until then, rookie Dak Prescott is the most likely candidate to take over the No. 2 spot on the depth chart.

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.
