Rush accepted his only football scholarship offer, which came from Central Michigan University, where he became a four-year starter at quarterback.
In his redshirt season, he was named the school’s Scout Team Player of the Year. As a freshman, although he began the season as the third-string quarterback, he was named the starter by the third game, after Cody Kater was injured and his backup Alex Niznak couldn't move the offense against the University of New Hampshire.
Coming out of Central Michigan, Rush was projected by the majority of NFL draft experts and analysts to be a seventh round pick or a priority undrafted free agent. On December 6, 2016, it was announced that Rush had accepted his invitation to the East–West Shrine Game. On January 21, 2017, Rush performed in the East–West Shrine Game for the East and completed 11 of 17 pass attempts for 97-yards in a 10-3 loss to the West.
Rush was signed as an undrafted free agent by the Dallas Cowboys after the 2017 NFL Draft on May 12.As a rookie, he initially competed with Zac Dysert in training camp for the job as the third-string quarterback. After Dysert suffered a herniated disc, the Cowboys signed Luke McCown to replace him on the roster.
In 2018, he was the backup at quarterback from the start of organized team activities, as he never received any strong competition from rookie Mike White. He only played in the sixth game against the Jacksonville Jaguars, closing out a 40-7 win in the fourth quarter, where he only handed the ball to the running backs.
In 2019, he wasn't challenged for the backup quarterback role, so the Cowboys decided to keep only 2 quarterbacks on the roster, releasing White at the end of the preseason. He only played in the season opener against the New York Giants and in the fourteenth game against the Los Angeles Rams. He did not have any pass attempts while closing out the two wins in the fourth quarter.On March 18, 2020, Rush re-signed with the Cowboys on a one-year restricted free agent tender.On May 4, Rush was waived by the Cowboys after the team signed former Cincinnati Bengals quarterback Andy Dalton.
