VALLEY RANCH — You’ve seen him at practice and you’ve seen him looking frustrated on the sidelines, but now Tony Romo is finally set to return to football on Sunday.
Romo addressed the media Wednesday for the first time since breaking his collarbone in week two.
“I’m not thinking about anything other than beating the Dolphins this week,” he said. “My job is to, hopefully, not have the kind of rust that can happen after this kind of layoff.”
Having a top Quarterback should help out the Cowboys running game, as well, which struggled last week against the Buccaneers.
Romo was on his pre-injury schedule of not practicing on Wednesdays.
“Certainly don’t want him to feel like he’s got to come in and save the day,” Head Coach Jason Garrett said. “He just needs to play quarterback for our football team, and he’s done that well for us in the past.”
Still, it is going to be hard to play down expectations. The Boys will probably need to win out to have a chance at the playoffs. But here is the good news, they will finally have their starting QB to do it.
