Romo to Make Preseason Debut Friday

Tony Romo sat out of the Hall of Fame game win over the Dolphins last week



    Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo will make his preseason debut against the Oakland Raiders on Friday night. He was held out of the Hall of Fame game win over the Dolphins last week strictly as a cautionary measure, after he missed all of the team’s offseason workouts while recovering from cyst-removal surgery.

    “I think we’ve had a great training camp and I think the guys have worked real hard," Romo said, per ESPN Dallas, "and it’s just going to be good to go out there and hit someone new.”

    It will be Romo’s first game under the team’s new playcalling system--with offensive coordinator Bill Callahan calling the plays from the booth to the sideline, where quarterbacks coach Wade Wilson will pass them on to Romo--and Romo believes he’s ready for that.

    “Jason’s done a great job of simulating the way we’re going to do it in the game while out here,” Romo said. “We’ve been doing it for a little while, but obviously in every game you can find little things here and there that will be a good thing for us.”
