Jones: Tony Romo won't sit

ESPN - [Full Article]

The question has been raised by more than a few people thanks to the way the Cowboys' season has unfolded -- will Tony Romo play if Dallas' chances of making the playoffs are remote?

Speaking on 105.3 The Fan in Dallas on Tuesday, Cowboys owner and general manager Jerry Jones discounted any idea of sitting Romo for the season.

The Cowboys are on a six-game losing streak since Romo suffered a broken left collarbone and will play their final game without him Sunday against the Buccaneers with Matt Cassel at quarterback.

Romo will be eligible to return from the injured reserve/designated to return list Nov. 22 against the Dolphins.

"When he gets on the field against Miami, and it most assuredly will be at this juncture, there's no set of circumstances that we wouldn't play him and play him with hopes of winning that game and winning the rest of the ballgames," Jones told the station. "I think not only our game but sports in general, if you've got an opportunity, if you got a chance to win this thing, then you take it.

"I know I'm talking in generalities, but specifically, we have a team that could really, from the standpoint of the personnel that's on the field, really be a top team as we get into the last half of this season. We want to show our fans that."

Fantasy Impact: 

Romo will take part in on-field work for the second straight week, most likely starting on Thursday, as the Cowboys don't want him to work three straight days, the story said. Coach Jason Garrett said Monday that Romo had a good practice last Friday, when he worked with the scout team in seven-on-seven and 11-on-11 drills. Romo will continue to work with the scout team this week because Cassel needs the first-team offensive reps.
