An injury to the Cowboys’ current backup quarterback has former backup (and current head coach) Jason Garrett under center, 11 years after his 11-year playing career came to an end.
Brandon Weeden suffered a concussion in the preseason loss to the 49ers last week and has been held out of practice ever since.
That left the Cowboys with Tony Romo, Dustin Vaughan and Jameil Showers to take the practice reps. With his QBs spread thin as such, Garrett jumped in this week and, in doing so, opened himself up to some criticism from Romo.
“Arm’s doing OK,” Garrett said, per the Dallas Morning News. “I love it. I love playing football. (Tony) Romo was on me because I wasn’t really taking a full drop. I said, Not only do I have arm limitations, I have foot limitations too so I’ve got to give myself some advantage.”
