After reports surfaced earlier on Saturday that starting quarterback Tony Romo would miss the next 6-10 weeks with a broken bone in his back, the Cowboys suddenly have a very serious quarterback problem on their hands.
Yet, coach Jason Garrett still says Romo is day to day with a fractured bone in his back and refuses to publicly rule him out for the September 11 opener against the New York Giants.
Prescott has been an impressive work for the Cowboys during the pre-season having a total of 454 yards with five touchdowns and no interceptions.
Romo lasted just three plays in the Cowboys’ 27-17 loss in Seattle on Thursday night.
Romo’s ability to extend plays with his feet has always been a strength.
Garrett said Romo’s injury won’t end his season. His sparkling play has captivated the imagination of the Cowboys and their fans, but the expectation was for Prescott to sit and watch as Romo, entering his 14th National Football League season, commanded the offense. “In respecting such American principles as freedom of religion and freedom of expression, we recognize the right of an individual to choose to participate, or not, in our celebration of the national anthem”.
One fan got so frustrated that he took to Change.org and created a petition to force the injury prone quarterback to retire because he sucks now. “But if it’s more that’s when you can see nerve damage and in severe cases a risk for paralysis”, Michels said. He said an MRI revealed the break, but the coach did not provide further details. When I got off the ground, I was like, ‘Hey that was nice. “Good kid, good player”.
Head coach Jason Garrett refuses to admit it, but it’s essentially Dak Season in Big D. But it is still banned by the NFL.
“That’s something that I think he will have to answer”, Bryant said. “He and I talked about that”. And you have to understand that you are under a microscope 24 hours a day.
“So excited to have him step into that role in Tony’s absence and excited to really just focus our attention on today and try to get better today, Sunday”. He understood. He apologized. “It’s something he will learn from”.
“It’s my understanding it does not”, Garrett said.
