Jerry Jones: Jason Garrett isn’t coaching for his job


Cowboys owner Jerry Jones was on the radio Tuesday morning, but he didn’t have much to add from Monday’s assessment of quarterback Tony Romo’s status.

Jones reiterated that Romo has not been ruled out of Sunday’s game and that he’s going through treatment in hopes of being cleared by doctors in time to face the Eagles. Jones wouldn’t discuss more about Romo’s medical condition, citing HIPAA regulations, choosing to leave his status a “question mark” as the week unfolds.

Jones was willing to say a bit more about coach Jason Garrett, however. Jones, who said he wouldn’t give repeated votes of confidence in the coach, said that Garrett is not coaching for his job this weekend.

“He has a bright future with the Cowboys,” Jones said on 105.3 The Fan, via Charean Williams of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram.

There’s no timeframe on that future, of course, and Jones has the right and the ability to change his mind at any moment. For now, though, the Cowboys have remained steadfast when it comes to Garrett remaining on the job whether or not they beat the Eagles this weekend.
