Veteran quarterback Tony Romo returned to join the team practice for the Dallas Cowboys Thursday. Dak Prescott, a rookie QB who has led the team to 5-1 this season, is still the starter and there are rumors that the Cowboys are considering trading Romo before the NFL trade deadline.
This is the first team practice for Tony Romo since his back injury during the preseason. Officially he is listed as “limited” in the team injury report.
The original plan for Tony Romo was to return by mid-season. But Prescott has played well and there is no reason to rush Romo back in action. There are also rumors that Romo will be moved to the back-up role unless Prescott drops his play or suffers a major injury.
“I can’t imagine a scenario where Tony’s not our quarterback when he’s ready. But things happen. You know that. You know what happened to Bledsoe and Brady. I’m sure Tony’s aware of that. But the reality is, Tony’s going to come back for us and play great, we believe,” Dallas Cowboys executive vice president Stephen Jones stated back in August.
But the Cowboys were successful even without Tony Romo. There are speculations that the team is even better with Prescott as starter rather than the veteran.
