Tony Romo Back at Practice for First Time & Throwing!
VALLEY RANCH — Attention Cowboys, your savior has arrived! That’s right, Tony Romo was throwing the football at practice for the first time since breaking his collarbone in Week 2 against the Philadelphia Eagles.
Romo isn’t expected to be game ready for another two weeks, but the team hasn’t won since he got hurt. So, we’ll take whatever good news we can get.
Elsewhere, the Cowboys roster churn continues. Head coach Jason Garrett blamed “personal issues” as the reason Joseph Randle was cut from the team Tuesday, “We think it’s most impotent for Joe to take care of some of these issues that he has away from football.”
Randle could be facing a league suspension over an incident with his ex-girlfriend back in February.
Randle’s also been a been a disappointment on the field this season. He started the year as the Cowboys starting running back but was replaced by Darren McFadden after he failed to meet expectations.
“Darren McFadden has really stepped up and taken advantages of the opportunities here,” Coach Garrett said. “We’re confident in him and the guys that we have behind him.”
Trey Willams was picked up off the Redskins practice squad to take Randle’s open spot.
“I feel like I have the speed and elusiveness to get past defenders and show why the Cowboys picked me up,” he said.
The Cowboys running game will be under the spotlight this week. DeMarco Murray, who led the league in rushing as a Cowboy last year, will be back in town with his new team when the Boys take on The Eagles.
Sounds like a great time to end this five-game losing streak.
