Despite being deemed 100 percent by Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones, quarterback Tony Romo is not yet ready to return to the field.
After hinting that he may sit out of the team’s preseason opener against the San Diego Chargers, the Fort Worth Star-Telegram is reporting that Romo will in fact be sitting out of the game.
Romo says that he plans to be smart about his return to the field, but the target is currently to return in Week 2.
That means that former Cleveland Browns first-round pick Brandon Weeden will get the start.
As long as Romo is able to get back to the field at the 100 percent Jerry Jones claims that he is, there is no cause for concern. If there are some setbacks that no one is currently talking about, that could spell an early disaster for the Cowboys with Weeden beginning the season as the team’s starting quarterback.
It is safe to say that no one at Valley Ranch and none of the Cowboys fans want to see that happen.
