Dallas Cowboys QB Tony Romo wants to play Friday


Tony Romo sat out the Hall of Fame game between the Dallas Cowboys and Miami Dolphins as expected. That game is in addition to the already standard 4 preseason games and Romo was held out to prevent their $108 million investment from potentially getting injured in a meaningless game.

Romo had said that he wanted to played in the game though.

“If I did play, it would be a series, whether you went eight plays or three plays, I’m not sure how much that is going to affect that,” Romo said Monday, via the team’s official website. “Saying that, I still want to play every time I suit up. Every time I step out there your juices are flowing and you want to compete. From that perspective, yeah. But whatever the coaches want.”

When asked if he’d play in Friday’s preseason matchup against the Oakland Raiders Romo had a simple response.

“Heck yeah,” said Romo, via ESPN Dallas. “Unless something weird happens and we sit everybody again.”

At the Hall of Fame game Romo participated in pre-game warmups and was in full uniform on the sideline. Head coach Jason Garrett treated the game more asa showcase for younger players. Only four starters played in the game: Tyron Smith, Doug Free, Travis Frederick and Justin Durant.
