Tony Romo would like to forget the 2015 season. The Cowboys quarterback broke his collarbone twice and he was only able to play in four games. He's expected to be fine this season and hopefully the injury bug is behind him. We expect him to return as a No. 1 Fantasy quarterback and he's a great option with a mid-round pick in all leagues. In 2014, Romo had one of the best years of his career with 3,705 passing yards, 34 touchdowns and nine interceptions, and that's what he's capable of this year with the same coaching staff and more or less the same personnel. Make sure his collarbone is OK, but you can let Romo fall to you on Draft Day and end up with a standout Fantasy quarterback.
Romo (collarbone) made a successful return to game action in Friday's 41-14 preseason victory over the Dolphins, going 4-for-5 for 49 yards with no touchdowns or interceptions. The veteran stepped onto the field for the first in 2016 and provided an efficient performance after the offense got off to a rough start with three holding penalties in the first five plays. Romo was 3-for-3 on his second and final drive on the strength of connections with Dez Bryant and Jason Witten before Alfred Morris culminated the downfield march with a 15-yard touchdown run. The 36-year-old even took a hit and got up no worse for wear, a necessary rite of passage for him coming off his collarbone injury. Romo appears set for more extensive action in the Cowboys' regular-season dress rehearsal game against the Seahawks next Thursday.
Romo (collarbone) is expected to play in Dallas' second preseason game versus Miami on Friday, DallasNews.com reports. The last time Romo saw live action was late last November during Dallas' Week 12 matchup with Carolina. Shoulder and collarbone woes have sidelined him since then, but, not that there was a significant amount of concern regarding his Week 1 availability anyway, the quarterback is now all but guaranteed to be ready for the start of the regular season.
Romo (collarbone) won't take the field for Saturday's preseason game at Los Angeles, Todd Archer of ESPN.com reports. Romo's prescribed preseason reps mimic his practice schedule, but for good reason. There's little reason to introduce contact with a month remaining before Week 1 of the regular season. Expect Romo to make a brief appearance during the second and/or third preseason games in order to fit in a semblance of reps with the first-team offense.
Romo (collarbone) will likely sit out Saturday's preseason opener against the Rams in Los Angeles, the Dallas Morning News reports. Romo has been following his practice schedule from recent campaigns, with occasional rest days interspersed throughout each week in order to preserve his health. Even so, he participated in full pads for the third day in a row Sunday, completing 10 off 14 passes during team drills. As he continues to ramp his activity level, he'll surely make an appearance during exhibition season, namely the third preseason game in which starters receive a significant snap count. On Saturday, though, the Cowboys will hand the keys to the offense to rookie Dak Prescott and second-year pro Jameill Showers due to the broken ankle sustained by Kellen Moore last week.
Romo (collarbone) missed Sunday's walkthrough and will sit out the subsequent practice, Todd Archer of ESPN.com reports. On Friday, head coach Jason Garrett stated his belief that Romo wouldn't be limited in training camp, but the Cowboys will clearly follow their in-season practice pattern from seasons past and hold him out on occasion. While the schedule was created to keep Romo fresh and likely to sidestep the instances in which an ailment can occur, 2015 was yet another example that all the precaution in the world can only go so far. He'll have an opportunity to prove his current state during the first padded practice Monday, while a scheduled day off Wednesday justified the Cowboys' decision to hold out the veteran signal-caller Sunday.
