Brandon Weeden gets the start, finds end zone in opener
by Igor Mello |

With Tony Romo sidelined, Cowboys backup quarterback Brandon Weeden got the start for Thursday's preseason opener against the Chargers. 

Weeden played the first half of the game and hooked up with James Hanna for a 4-yard touchdown in the second quarter. He completed 13 of 17 passes for 107 yards ad a touchdown. He also had one run for a gain of 10 yards. 

Weeden will likely be relegated to backup duties, as Romo is expected to return for the second preseason game, Aug. 16 against Baltimore.

Brandon Weeden could play entire first half
by Larry Hartstein |

Cowboys quarterback Brandon Weeden will start Thursday's game against the Chargers and play as much as a half, reports the Fort Worth Star-Telegram. Tony Romo is sitting out as the team manages his comeback from back surgery.

"It’ll be good to be out there with those guys," Weeden said. “We’ve got some great offensive weapons. I’m excited to be able to go out and compete with those guys. It’s the first time with the star on my helmet, and it feels good. It’s very exciting."

Signed in the offseason, Weeden will back up Romo. Caleb Hanie and Dustin Vaughn are the quarterbacks behind Weeden.

"He just needs to play," Cowboys coach Jason Garrett said of Weeden. "If you know his biography, his time he spent in baseball, a two-year stint at Oklahoma State and playing in a couple of different systems in Cleveland.

"He just needs to takes snaps. He has a lot of natural ability. You can see that. He is really good throwing the football. He can throw any kind of ball you want him to throw. He just needs to take snaps, and to see him grow when he gets an opportunity to take snaps, make mistakes, make plays and learn from it all."

Brandon Weeden moves up to No. 2
by Larry Hartstein |

With the Cowboys' release of Kyle Orton, Brandon Weeden will enter the season as the backup quarterback behind Tony Romo. Weeden went 0-5 as a starter last year with the Browns, throwing nine touchdowns and nine interceptions.

But Dallas coaches have been impressed with Weeden, who took all the first-team reps during OTAs and minicamp while Romo recovered from back surgery.

Brandon Weeden not worried about Kyle Orton's decision
by Larry Hartstein |

The Cowboys still don't know whether backup quarterback Kyle Orton will play this season. But Brandon Weeden said the uncertainty is not affecting his preparation.

"I’m going to go about my business the same way regardless. I haven’t met Kyle, so I can’t really speak on it, but whatever he decides to do – it’s kind of out of my control," Weeden told the team's website. "So what I’m worried about is, if I’m running with the twos out there, do my job to make the twos better. I want to make the team better any way I can, so it doesn’t change my mindset or the way I feel about it."

Weeden said his goal is to earn the backup job, regardless of whether Orton shows up.

Brandon Weeden provides insurance for Kyle Orton
by Larry Hartstein |

The Cowboys anticipate quarterback Kyle Orton participating in the mandatory June minicamp, but if he retires they'll move forward with Brandon Weeden as Tony Romo's backup, reports the Dallas Morning News.

"Well, that's the plan," quarterbacks coach Wade Wilson said. "That's one of the reasons we signed [Weeden]. We're still hopeful that Kyle will be here, but if he doesn't, we feel really good about Brandon, especially since he's going through our offseason program."
