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.
