Cowboys QB Tony Romo (back, out) missed practice all week and is out for Week 1. Dak Prescott will get the start and he’s a good-looking Sneaky Start/DFS play this week even though the Cowboys are expected to go run-heavy.

The Cowboys considered placing quarterback Tony Romo on injured reserve with a broken bone in his back, which would give him the opportunity to return later in the year. They apparently have decided not to do that.
Owner Jerry Jones said on 105.3 The Fan in Dallas that there’s no other position sufficiently valuable to justify removing Romo from the roster, via David Helman of the team’s official website.
The story said each and every week, the Cowboys can try to create the impression that Romo is ready to come back. At some point, there will be a real question as to whether Romo will be ready, and it will cause a team to prepare for seeing Romo. Maybe, at some point, a team won’t be sufficiently ready for Dak Prescott. Maybe, at some point, a team will be completely unprepared for Romo, the story went on to say.
The Cowboys made their signing of quarterback Mark Sanchez official on Sunday about 24 hours after they initially announced that they’d be signing the former Jet, Eagle and Bronco to their 53-man roster.
They waived Jameill Showers to make room for Sanchez on the roster, which some might have interpreted as a decision to keep Tony Romo on the 53-man roster while he recovers from the broken bone in his back that’s expected to keep him out for much if not all of the first half of the season.
On Monday, coach Jason Garrett said that no such decision has been made about Romo’s status and that it will come after more tests in the next couple of days.
“We’re going to continue to gather information here in the next couple days on Tony and just see what his status is,” Garrett said, via the team’s website. “Currently he’s on the 53-man roster. We’ll get some more information here over the next 48 hours and make a determination as to what his status will be going forward.”
The Cowboys felt like they had to do something behind Prescott, who will become just the fourth rookie in franchise history to start a season opener, the story said.
