The Dallas Cowboys have played well even without their starting quarterback Tony Romo with the good showing of young QB Dak Prescott. The Cowboys are 4-1 so far this season with Prescott under center and recent rumors state that Romo could rejoin the team anytime soon.
“Jerry Jones says Tony Romo is scheduled for an MRI to check on his progress tomorrow. He adds that Romo is the Cowboys’ QB1, just FYI,” David Helman, an NFL writer for DallasCowboys.com, stated.
“Tony is our No. 1 quarterback. We’re going to have the luxury of being able to, I think, see them both,” Cowboys owner and general manager Jerry Jones stated via the team website.
“I don’t want to presume that Dak is going to be necessarily healthy, I don’t want to presume anything like that. But I welcome the opportunity of having Dak playing at this level and Tony back in excellent health. It’s going to be really special for the Cowboys.”
There are Dallas fans that want Prescott to remain the starting QB since the Cowboys have been successful so far this season. Romo suffered a back injury in the third game of the Cowboys during the preseason.
Without Romo, Prescott and the Cowboys opened the season with a 20-19 loss to the New York Giants but have won their last four games, against the Washington Redskins (27-23), Chicago Bears (31-17), San Francisco 49ers (24-17) and Cincinnati Bengals (28-14).
Prescott, a 23-year-old rookie who was drafted in the fourth round the last draft, has been impressive as a starter. He has a total of 1,239 passing yards on 107 of 155 passes or 69.0% completion with four touchdowns and no interception. He also ran for 61 yards on 19 attempts with 3 rushing TDs.
With Romo is coming back soon, there are rumors that the Cowboys could trade Prescott since he will lose playing time to the veteran QB. Dallas’ good start could tempt Jones that dealing Prescott could be good for the team if they want to win the Super Bowl this season.
