Report: Cowboys to start Dak Prescott over Tony Romo vs. Eagles
It looks like the Dallas Cowboys have reportedly delivered a concrete date for the return of Tony Romo, and will allow Dak Prescott to lead the charge against the Eagles.
Originally slated to return Week 8 vs. the rival Eagles, Romo is again throwing but has yet to return to full practice. As the team enters the bye week, players will break for rest before coming back to prepare for their battle with Philly, not leaving the franchise signal caller much time to ramp back up for the contest.
It's likely this notion that has reportedly pushed Romo's debut back to Week 9 vs. the Browns, as reported recently.
And per NFL Insider Ian Rapoport, it looks to be official per source:
"Cowboys are starting QB Dak Prescott post-bye vs. Eagles, per source." says NFL Insider Ian Rapoport. "No surprise. Tony Romo may not be ready to be considered vs. Browns."
Allowing Romo the extra time will not only assure he's fully healthy, but it'll also give Prescott time to continue the hot hand he's waving.
It's a 'great problem' to have says owner Jerry Jones, and he couldn't possibly be more correct in that description.
