Jerry Jones: Tony Romo MRI Monday expected to reveal good news

AP

Cowboys owner Jerry Jones says Tony Romo appears close to returning as the starting quarterback in Dallas.

Jones said after today’s win over the Bengals that Romo is set for an MRI on Monday, and that the team is expecting it to show that Romo will soon return from his preseason back injury.

“I just know that I do expect a good report Monday,” Jones said. “I know that Tony is feeling better.”

Jones said that when Romo is deemed healthy, Dak Prescott will move down to No. 2 on the depth chart.

“Tony is our No. 1 quarterback. We’re going to have the luxury of being able to, I think, see them both,” he said. “I don’t want to 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.”

When Romo was injured last year, it effectively ended the Cowboys’ season. This year the Cowboys have won four in a row without Romo, but when Romo is healthy he’ll still get the starting job back. And that may be soon.

  1. People can, and likely will, take issue with Romo getting his job back. I love what I see out of Prescott, but he’s thrown maybe 5 passes more than 20 yards downfield. The future is bright with Dak, but with Romo the offensive gameplan expands and the field opens up a little further. As a Cowboy fan, this is a great position to be in.

  2. Jerry: We have great news after Tony’s MRI. We have found multiple fractures throughout his body. Dak will start until 2023…then we’ll give Romo another MRI.

  3. No no no please we finally have some chemistry with this team putting romo back in would be our kryptonite look it all boils down to this had Tony been in there all this time he would have had at least one interception in every game and at least one multiple pick game dak ain’t thrown one yet and this team is behind him romo is a progress stopper don’t do it

  4. Rookies are rookies for a reason, and the longer we get in the season, the more tougher it will become. NOBODY, AND I MEAN NOBODY thought Dak and this team would perform they way he has. Heck Wentz wouldn’t be doing what he’s doing if Teddy didn’t get hurt, and I’m not even sure Bradford would be doing what he is doing if he was still in Philly. To have a Qb like romo hitless for the last 5 weeks preparing to come back to our offense that is taking its’ stride is a great thing for us, if our aspirations is to play deep in January. He was one bad a call away from doing it 2 years ago, I believe he can definitely do it now.

    Bad move……………….

  7. Do you risk messing with the chemistry this current group has developed by bringing in suspended and healthy starters as they become available? I hate Dallas but I have to admit they seem to have a pretty dang good thing goin’ on right now.

    I thought the goal was to win the game, not fling the ball all over the field.

    When Romo played he made a lot of big plays and and enough dumb mistakes to ensure that the team never got within sniffing distance of the SB.

    Buess21- I believe you are exaggerating your point even though I agree with the main premise of your point. Dak is averaging 7.73 yards per attempt (10th in the NFL) and though its a small sample size, it is still very good considering the Cowboys’ run first philosophy. I would rather have my quarterback throw for 1 TD and 0 interceptions rather than 2 TD and 1 INT. You need to stop trying to “win pretty” with seductive stats. Leave Romo on the bench and lets let the rookies take it from here. Time to move on.

  10. If we make the playoffs, I think i would still rather have Romo in if he’s healthy but want to see Dak finish the season to see how he does.

    It’s going to be a hard call for delusional JJ. Keep Dak in for ROY (really for publicity and ego on how good of GM he thinks he is) or bring Romo back in that he owes a fortune to.

  11. Dr. Jerry Jones M.D. at work…he’s amazing? he’s a jack of all trades!! knows everything about everything.

    Since he’s a Dr. and all, I’m wondering what he thinks of the Rx of Cousins/DJax and a dosage of a little Jordan Reed will do to his team in a few months on my way to my 4th title….

    Watch out, REDSKINS D heating up, boys!

  12. How many fractures has Romo suffered to date? Has to be at least a half-dozen. It sounds like he has a congenital bone condition. Somewhere out here there’s a broadcasting job waiting for you, Tony. Don’t wait until you’re crippled for life, dude. No game is worth it.

  13. You don’t get it do you Jerry Jones, Romo is a jinx to the cowboys he always has been and always will be. The fumble in Seattle was beginning of a long and botched up career by a overrated quarterback.
    To remove Dak Prescott as quarterback would be ludicrous, but Jerry you strive to make the worst decisions a GM and Owner could possibly make.
    Do you see in front of your eyes wearing a Dallas uniform, a possible Hall of Famer. He is getting more comfortable with every play, he’s not dazzled like Romo is in the pocket. he has younger legs and is making longer passes with each game. He will only get better, to take him out would be detrimental to his progression. He is more accurate than Romo will ever be.
    Cut Romo you idiot, gain the extra money and buy the Dallas Cowboys a defense that we can have hope in.
    Besides one more hit on Romo and he will be finished, but you can’t see that. Then try to bring Prescott in the last few games of the season and see what sitting on the bench will do for you.

  14. I hope the Cowboys make the mistake and bring Romo back. They’re winning now, so why change? Is the future with a broken-down old QB, or a rookie who has become the co-front-runner for Rookie of the Year with his team mate E. Elliot?

  15. Some times throwing the ball 20 yards is a good thing and some times its not if the defense playing deep take thoes ten yards under he may not (Dack)be throwing 20 yards but he’s winning thats what we need is wins

  16. As a Tony fan, of course I want to see him back out there. As a Cowboys fan I say stick with Dak as long as you can. He will get even better with the more games he plays. They cannot go with Tony in 3 weeks, he hasn’t even practiced and I don’t think we need to go through him knocking the rust off on national television. Let him come back after Thanksgiving

  17. Why in the world would anybody want to go into the playoffs with Romo as the QB? Have you not watched the last 10 seasons?

  18. Tony Romo should put the team first and see how this team will finish the season with Prescott as quarterback but that won’t happen because Romo is not a team player. All he can think about Prescott taking his job so instead of seeing the team succeed under Prescott he would rather see them suffer and go down under his watch like they’ve done in the past. He has not played or taken any snaps in 6 weeks and it will probably be 10 weeks before he can play because he has not been cleared to practice. Prescott is on a roll and I wouldn’t interfere with his interception and other records because of spoiled brat quarterback that should’ve been traded years ago. I hope the doctors tell him and the Cowboys not to play him this season.

  19. We need Romo to lead this team as far as it can go and here’s why.Dak looks real good not making any mistakes and not losing the game but the reason is because of our running game.Their will be games that we play with great defenses that will limit our running game then you will see the rookie come out on Dak.I dont think we will be shut down completely rushing the ball but will have to depend on our QB and Romo has been in those situation many times……We have A lot of uneducated people on this blog that knows very little on how football works and you know who you are.

  20. Hopefully Romo will be around for another year or two and let Dak learn behind the best.Dak is still A rookie and will make mistakes and you will see when our running game is limited.

    To starbright steve…

    I don’t think you are as smart as you think you are. Let’s see how Dak does in GB. A good performance against a good team and he has the job.
