The Cowboys appear to be in major trouble this season. They are soft pedaling it, but Tony Romo does not appear to be fully recovered from his back surgery and is having to miss practices at training camp. Kyle Orton retired, after taking a good chunk of Jerry's money in a settlement, so it would be up to...Brandon Weeden to guide America's team into another season out of the playoffs if Romo could not last the season.
All of which sounds just awesome!
From the Dallas Morning News:
Tony Romo’s training camp took another curious turn Tuesday.
Head coach Jason Garrett said the quarterback wouldn’t go in the afternoon session. A few hours earlier, executive vice president Stephen Jones said that Romo would practice.
This doesn’t represent a split at the top of the organization. What is does indicate is the confusion over any sort of plan in place to get the quarterback ready for the start of the season.
“Tony is not going to do anything this afternoon,’’ Garrett said. “He got his work in this morning in some of the walk thru sessions.’’
Garrett stressed that Romo has not had any setbacks since camp began and added that, “hopefully he’ll come back and have a good day tomorrow.’’
Hopefully? Garrett also said the coaching staff decided to keep Romo out of the afternoon practice because the team was going to work on some very competitive two-minute situations.
If Romo is as healthy as the Cowboys claim, wouldn’t they want their starting quarterback to get some work in those two-minute situations?
