Dallas Cowboys owner and general manager Jerry Jones anticipates QB Tony Romo playing approximately two more preseason series.
“Well, I think you’ll probably see him here against Miami about like you did the other night,” Jones said during a Tuesday appearance on 105.3 The Fan. “I don’t know that we ought to do any more than that then really see not only [Brandon] Weeden but our young quarterback can get some snaps out there.”
Romo and the rest of the starters have typically played at least a half in the third preseason game, considered the dress-rehearsal game, and sits out the preseason finale.
The Cowboys planned for Romo to play about 12 snaps Saturday night against the Baltimore Ravens, his first game action since undergoing back surgery to repair a herniated disk in December. He ended up playing 16 snaps, including two plays negated by penalty. The big question is how will he respond after taking a hit, something he didn't do in his first preseason action.
