Jerry Jones: Cowboys Can Win With Orton

In all likelihood, Kyle Orton will get his first start as a Cowboy on Sunday



    Dallas Cowboys owner and general manager Jerry Jones believes the team has enough of a supporting cast on offense to win without the services of Tony Romo, who reportedly suffered a herniated disc in last week’s win over the Redskins. This might not be the case, Jones said, if they suffered another devastating injury on defensive side of the ball.

    "We got enough offense with Kyle [Orton]," Jones said of the back-up, per the Fort Worth Star-Telegram. "We got a lot of great players around Tony. Our offensive line has improved by leaps and bounds from the beginning of the year. With the wide receivers we got and the backs we got I think we got a better supporting cast on offense. I'm not minimizing losing Tony. But we got a better supporting cast to win a ball game and to do what we need to do to win than what we have on defense. There is a little more margin there for us to make due. That will serve us well.”

    Of course, the man who Jones himself refers to as the team’s defensive quarterback, middle linebacker Sean Lee, will likely miss Sunday’s game with a neck injury.
