Okay, maybe we should start worrying about the Dallas Cowboys’ backup quarterback situation.

Cowboys’ backup quarterback Cooper Rush threw his third interception in as many games: a poorly-thrown pass in the first quarter Thursday night.

Rush threw two interceptions in Sunday’s preseason loss against the Arizona Cardinals, including a pick six.

His interception against the Texans almost was returned for a touchdown by Justin Reid. Reid stepped out of bounds on his return and the Texans had to drive it in from 44 yards for a 4-yard touchdown run by Alfred Blue to take a 7-3 lead.

The Cowboys took a 3-0 lead on Brett Maher’s 57-yard field goal on their first possession of the night.

Rush completed 3 of 8 passes for 19 yards in the first quarter.
