But the running back drafted No. 4 overall by the Cowboys seemed to be in team owner Jerry Jones' doghouse following the 27-17 preseason loss for reasons that had nothing to do with football. Romo missed 12 games last season because of a twice-broken left collarbone. He is probably going to be the one to take over once the Tony Romo era is over, what will be interesting to see is with a number of times that Tony Romo gets injured, could that be sooner rather than later.
When Dak Prescott comes in with the backups, we'll get to see more of his elusiveness as he continues to drive the ball down the field with veteran-like poise. He wanted to go back in. Romo completed his first pass of the game for an 11-yard completion to Terrance Williams. If all goes to plan, that could be closer to the 50 percent mark the team had in 2014 with DeMarco Murray, as evidenced by the 7-of-15 play share Elliott saw. We don't think it's a serious thing, and we just felt better keeping him out.
The Cowboys have stood behind the former Ohio State running back since the allegations came to light.
Jones is just glad Romo didn't get hurt and he was able to joke about the situation after the game.
"He's looked really good, and of course the real way to evaluate how he looks is out at practice and how he's moving around", Jones said.
"I was, because there was no film on him, so I didn't know if he was going to juke or whatnot, so I was a little surprised, but not the second time", Chancellor said, via ESPN. Not only does he seem to have command to the pro-set offenses used by numerous teams that he will face in his career, Prescott's speed and strength have already proven an asset to an offense desperate for new dimensions. Mcfadden has yet to play in the preseason and Morris finished with 17 yards on five carries. He sat out the preseason opener against the Los Angeles Rams, played just two series against the Miami Dolphins before leaving after three plays against the Seahawks. "I was ready to go at any point", Prescott said.
"I feel fine", Romo said to reporters after the game. "I feel very comfortable whether I'm done playing or whatever".
He told The Dallas News, "In general while it may not be wrong, it's just not good".
