Yesterday’s loss to the Cardinals may be the only game Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo misses.
Cowboys coach Jason Garrett said today that he believes Romo will be available for Sunday’s game against the Jaguars in London.
“Hopefully, he just progresses,” Garrett said. “He’s gotten better and better every day since the injury. Hopefully he’ll feel better from a pain standpoint and hopefully that’ll positively reflect his ability to move around, get some stiffness out. We’ve got a couple days before we practice. Hopefully he’ll handle the flight well, get over there, blood will be flowing through his body, and he’ll feel good.”
Romo has two fractures in a small bone in his back, and Garrett said that’s an injury that usually only requires players to miss one game. Romo has now missed his one game, and that means the Cowboys expect him back.
If Romo can go and play effectively, the Cowboys should beat the Jaguars and end their two-game losing streak. If the Cowboys have to start Brandon Weeden again, they could be ripe for an upset. Everyone in Dallas is hoping Romo is good to go.
