For week 10’s game against the Pittsburg Steelers, Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo’s availability has changed from medical decision to a coaches decision. The 36-year-old 4x-Pro Bowler has been recovering from a compression fracture in his back, while the Cowboys have gone 7-1 under surprise rookie sensation Dak Prescott. Whether or not he’ll suit up for Sunday’s game will depend on how well he handles the increased reps in practice, but it will totally be up to Cowboys Head Coach Jason Garrett in the end.
Cowboys’ Owner Jerry Jones has recently said the team should not force Romo’s return prematurely and risk re-injury, as he has done in the past, especially with how well the team has been performing. After nine weeks of “what-ifs,” the quarterback controversy is finally here in Dallas.
If Romo is healthy, who do you think should start this Sunday?
- Tony Romo
- Dak Prescott
