OXNARD, Calif. (AP) Dallas quarterback Kellen Moore broke his right ankle in a training camp practice Tuesday, likely forcing the Cowboys to look outside the organization for an experienced backup.
The injury happened during one of the last plays of 11-on-11 work in the second full-pad practice of camp. Guard Jared Smith was pushed back by defensive lineman Lawrence Okoye and stepped on Moore's ankle.
Without Moore, there isn't a backup behind Tony Romo with any NFL experience. Dallas drafted former Mississippi State quarterback Dak Prescott in the fourth round this year, and undrafted free agent Jameill Showers is in his second year. Prescott and Showers have been sharing third-team work.
Moore started the last two games of last season for the Cowboys, losing both as Dallas finished 4-12.
