Tony Romo didn’t practice on Monday, but Dallas Cowboys Executive Vice President Stephen Jones said this is all part of the process with the quarterback’s recovery from a back injury.
Speaking on 105.3 The Fan on Monday, Jones said the team is being patient with Romo.
“We are in a good situation,” Jones said. “We have to be careful with his back. But we can be patient with what Dak has done.”
Jones also said Dez Bryant is progressing nicely for this week against the Eagles, while he has supreme confidence the Cowboys will never be in a situation the Seattle Seahawks and Arizona Cardinals were in during Sunday’s 6-6 overtime tie that featured less-than-ideal kicking.
“I think if we played a game like that I’d feel pretty confident with Dan Bailey and the game on the line,” Jones said. “Whether it’s a 35-yard or 55-yard field goal, we know he’s going to make those.”
