All Indications From Jason Garrett And Tony Romo Suggest Romo Won’t Play Vs Philadelphia Eagles


During yesterday’s  lovely Christmas press conference from Dallas Cowboys head-coach Jason Garrett, all he was able to say was that Tony Romo was day-to-day, leaving many to believe that the Cowboys really have no intention of starting Romo on Sunday. As it turns out, ESPN’s Ed Werder was able to give us a bit more of a Romo update today.

Not practicing is to be expected. But if Romo was really going to play, don’t you think he would be attending game-plan sessions, for what might be the biggest game of his career? It would be one thing if he had a concussion not to attend meetings where a lot of thinking is required, but he has a herniated disk in his back. I understand that isn’t comfortable, but it’s Thursday. If Romo was going to suck it up for a little and try to play, then I would have though he would be attending some team functions today.

Cowboys coach Jason Garrett sort of set a deadline for when he wants Romo to start practicing by if he is going to play. Sort of.

In just about all cases, whichever quarterback is going to start Sunday, takes the first-team snaps on Friday. I understand that this could be a unique case because of what is on the line, but if Romo doesn’t practice tomorrow, that is a pretty firm indication that he isn’t going to play.
