Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo said this week that he wants to play in Sunday’s Hall of Fame Game against the Dolphins in Canton, OH, even if it were only for a series, but it doesn’t look like that’s going to happen.
According to the Dallas Morning News, Romo is among “a large number of starters” who were told by the staff Friday that they would be held out of the opening contest of the preseason--meaning that we won’t see the Dallas signal caller until (at the earliest) a week from Friday.
Romo has been a full participant in training camp after missing all of the team’s offseason workouts as he recovered from offseason surgery to remove a non-cancerous cyst on his back. While he’s still not at 100 percent, Romo seems to have been getting close over the past two weeks, but apparently not close enough for Dallas to trot him out just yet.
