For those of you that were really looking forward to seeing Kellen Moore finally get his chance to prove his naysayers wrong, you will have to wait a little bit longer unfortunately.
Kellen Moore has broken his leg/high ankle, according to Jerry Jones. Declined to address what club will do moving forward.

The Cowboys expressed over and over again their confidence in Kellen Moore holding down the back of QB duties in 2016, but they are now forced to turn to second-year player Jameill Showers and rookie QB Dak Prescott.
It will be really interesting to see what the organization chooses to do going forward, but I'm nearly 100% positive they will look out side the organization to make sure of all of their options.
One such option could be recently released QB Nick Foles.
This is truly unfortunate news for Kellen Moore. He was finally getting the opportunity after several years of just trying to fight for a roster spot during his short NFL career.
I want to personally wish him the best and hope that he has a speedy recovery.
#Cowboys backup QB Kellen Moore will have surgery on his broken ankle today in Dallas, source said. Recovery time is 3 or 4 months.

This certainly lessens the chance of Kellen Moore being the backup QB for the Cowboys in 2016.
