The Dallas Cowboys made the decision to sign Rush as an undrafted free agent after the 2017 National Football League Draft. He went on to play four seasons with the Cowboys.
Rush re-signed with the Cowboys on March 18, 2020, on a one-year restricted free-agent tender, continuing his relationship with the team.
After starting quarterback Dak Prescott suffered an ankle injury that ended his season on October 31, 2020, the Dallas Cowboys decided they needed additional depth at the quarterback position and added Rush to their practice squad.
Rush was released by the Cowboys on August 30, 2022, and immediately signed to the team’s practice squad the following day. After Dak Prescott suffered an injury on September 17, 2022, he was signed to the active roster so that he could take over as the starting quarterback.
It wasn’t until Week 2 of the season, against the Cincinnati Bengals, that he got his first start of the year. In that game, they won 20–17, and he threw for 235 yards and a score.
