Jerry Jones: “Tony is our #1 Quarterback”
Jerry Jones said it again after the Dallas Cowboys beat Cincinnati Sunday.
When Tony Romo is healthy, he'll be the Cowboys' quarterback.
Rookie Dak Prescott has led the Cowboys to a 4-1 record, best in the NFC East. He's begun his NFL career by throwing 155 passes without an interception to start his career, the second best mark in league history. He is only eight behind Tom Brady for the best ever.
"We're going to have the luxury of being able to, I think, see them both," Jones said. "Now I don't want to take anything -- presume that Dak is going to be necessarily healthy. I don't want to presume anything like that, but I welcome the opportunity of having Dak playing at this level and Tony back in excellent health. It's going to be really special for the Cowboys."
Romo is scheduled to have an MRI and Jones believes it will show the compression fracture is fully healed.
While there is no timetable for Romo's return, it's widely believed he could be ready by the target date, which is Oct 30.
