Jerry Jones: Tony Romo Will Play Regardless of Where We Are
With six losses before Thanksgiving, it's hard to imagine the Dallas Cowboys making the playoffs.
That doesn't matter to Cowboys general manager and owner Jerry Jones. According to him, Tony Romo will be back playing for the team no matter where they stand in the NFC.
Appearing on his radio show on 105.3 The Fan, Jones dismissed any notion Romo being eased back into the lineup and/or remaining on the bench until the end of season.
"When he gets on the field against Miami, and it most assuredly will be at this juncture, there's no set of circumstances that we wouldn't play him and play him with hopes of winning that game and winning the rest of the ballgames," Jones said.
The Cowboys haven't won a game since Week 2 of the regular season in Philadelphia, that's when Romo suffered a broken left collarbone. The Cowboys then placed him on an injured reserve which allowed him to be eligible to return in Week 10.
Romo returned to practice last Wednesday for the first time since the injury and has been seen on the sidelines wearing a headset trying to coach up backup Matt Cassel.
The Cowboys are set to play their final game without Romo on Sunday against the Buccaneers.
