Tony Romo Healthy Again and Jason Garrett to Decide Playing Time

Tony Romo is healthy again and the decision to play him is up to the Dallas Cowboys coaching staff, according to ESPN’s Ed Werder. Romo injured his back in the second play of the exhibition game against the Seattle Seahawks and rookie quarterback Dak Prescott has been nearly flawless in his absence. The Cowboys are 7-1 and they have a two game lead over the New York Giants in the NFC East.

Romo could be in uniform Sunday when Dallas travels to Pittsburgh for a big game against the Steelers. The Cowboys have not publicly stated their decision for Prescott to remain their starting quarterback, but all indications appear that the team will continue to play the rookie from Mississippi State. In eight games this season, Prescott has completed 67% of his passes, and thrown 12 touchdowns with just two interceptions. His quarterback rating is 104.2 and the Cowboys look more confident with the rookie signal caller under center then they have in years. Part of that is due to fellow rookie running back Ezekiel Elliott, who has 891 rushing yards and seven touchdowns this season. The team has fed off of Elliott and Prescott, and Garrett would be taking a huge risk with bringing Romo back, potentially breaking up his team’s chemistry.
