Tony Romo just made his debut this past weekend week against the Ravens, and he’ll only play two more series this preseason, give or take, according to Dallas Cowboys owner and general manager Jerry Jones.
“Well, I think you’ll probably see him here against Miami about like you did the other night,” Jones told 105.3-FM The Fan on Tuesday, via ESPN Dallas. “I don’t know that we ought to do any more than that then really see not only [Brandon] Weeden but our young quarterback can get some snaps out there.”
Usually, starters play an entire half during the dress rehearsal game, but Dallas has been taking such precautions with Romo all training camp. He was held out of a quarter of the team’s practice sessions as well as the preseason opener against the Chargers.
Jones remains optimistic that Romo will be ready for the regular season, though.
“He’s shown it throughout our training camp,” Jones said. “I thought he did a great job how he managed himself back in, if you will, his rhythm, if you want to use another word here. But he’s making all the throws and is really cherishing the options that he’s got in the offense.”
