    Cowboys’ Taryn Christion Gets Time at QB; More Coming?

    Last night was the first time we've seen Taryn Christion, the Dallas Cowboys' fourth quarterback on the current , actually playing the position in . Could we see more of Christion at QB in this Thursday's finale, and at what point should Mike White be worried?

    Signed just a few days before began, Christion has been tried at , receiver, and various units while the Cowboys were in . But last week he started getting more time at quarterback, and last night's win over the saw him playing a few drives at QB to close the game out.

    Sure, Taryn came in fourth behind White in the rotation. But that Dallas thought to give him reps in that game, the critical dress rehearsal game, is telling.

    doesn't get cute with rotations and playing time. He's old school, and there's meaning in every decision he makes about when and how guys get time in preseason.

    Ironically, the decision came following Mike White's best preseason game this year. He went 6-of-9 for 56 yards and a touchdown, plus avoided any or turnovers.

    Rather than let White keep building on that, though, Dallas pulled him for Taryn Christion in the 4th quarter. It seemed as if the Cowboys were determined to get him some time at QB.

    An even better showcase will come this Thursday night. The Cowboys host the in the final preseason game; we know won't be playing, and the team may even protect with limited time on the field.

    Dallas likely intends to give Christion some significant playing time on Thursday. And to help make that easier, they played him last night to get some of those butterflies out of his system.

    No, Taryn Christion probably isn't going to make the . Neither is Mike White, for that matter. It feels like the battle for the number-three QB is more about the now.

    But whatever the case, the battle seems to be heating up. Dallas appears more invested in Christion now as a quarterback than at any other point since he arrived; some added intrigue for Thursday's final preseason game.
