Cowboys | Tony Romo unsure of status for preseason opener

Thu, 31 Jul 2014 10:04:31 -0700

Dallas Cowboys QB Tony Romo (back) said he is not sure if he will play in the team's preseason opener Thursday, Aug. 7. "You're constantly evaluating it and you're constantly, I don't want to say adjusting because you stick to the plan, but it's a progression," Romo said. "It's leading up to San Francisco [on Sept. 7 for the season opener]. I am going to play in the preseason, obviously. I think it's important. The first game, we'll talk about it as we move into the weekend."

Fantasy Tip: It would not be a surprise to see Romo sit out early in the preseason as he continues to work his way back to top form. The team has been very cautious to this point with their quarterback.

Cowboys | Tony Romo to miss workouts

Fri, 25 Jul 2014 14:47:30 -0700

Dallas Cowboys QB Tony Romo (back) will sit out practice Friday, July 25 as part of a preplanned day off, according to Jason Garrett. Romo is scheduled to take all the first-team reps Saturday, July 26. "We talked about this beforehand with all of our players. Whenever they are coming back, to be mindful of the two-a-days and what they are doing. You are out here for an hour. It doesn't seem like much. It's a walk through situation. But you warm up for that, cool down and get started again in the afternoon," Garrett said. "We just wanted to make sure we are careful on the two-a-days and then the consecutive two-a-days. I think the schedule sets up pretty well for him the next few days. It gives him a chance to get himself settled in. We will keep an eye on him every day."

Fantasy Tip: It is not surprising that the Cowboys would be cautious in training camp With Romo coming off back surgery, especially early in camp. This will be something to keep an eye on, but it does not appear to be something to be concerned about for now.

Cowboys | Tony Romo doing better than last offseason

Mon, 07 Jul 2014 11:53:36 -0700

Dallas Cowboys QB Tony Romo (back) recently said he's "miles ahead of last year" in regards to his conditioning. Romo added that this year he'll be perfecting his play more than trying to "hammer everything out."

Fantasy Tip: Romo has proven to be a QB1 since 2007. The back injury and recovery are causing him to slide in drafts this year. He could be a late-round steal if he returns to form. For now, consider him a QB2 with QB1 potential.

Cowboys | Tony Romo changes offseason routine

Mon, 30 Jun 2014 17:28:02 -0700

Dallas Cowboys QB Tony Romo (back) said he hasn't played golf since his first of two back operations in April 2013.

Fantasy Tip: Romo has been knocked in the past for focusing too much on his golf game in the offseason and not enough on football, but his critics won't be able to use that against him this year. More importantly for fantasy purposes, Romo is making the necessary sacrifices to help ensure his back will hold up.

Cowboys | Tony Romo happy team addressing the line

Thu, 22 May 2014 11:08:10 -0700

Dallas Cowboys QB Tony Romo is happy the team is building through the offensive line. "As a quarterback, that half-second, that tenth of a second can make the difference in completing a pass or not," Romo said. "A lot of that is dictated as to whether or not you have that extra time. I think it goes to show the organization is building through the lines and that's the way you win in the National Football League late in the year."

Cowboys | Tony Romo says he'll be ready

Wed, 21 May 2014 16:21:37 -0700

Dallas Cowboys QB Tony Romo (back) has no doubts that he'll be able to return in 2014 after undergoing back surgery last December. He has been limited in on-field workouts the past several weeks, but he plans on doing more during organized team activities next week. "I'm getting close," Romo said. "We're just going to be smart during the OTAs and have a little bit of a pitch count but we're going to go out there each day and try to do all that we can. The guys are working hard and doing great and I think we're going to be ready."

Fantasy Tip: A QB at Romo's age coming off back surgery isn't the most sound fantasy football investment. However, if he looks good during offseason workouts and training camp, he should be viewed as a midrange QB1.

Dallas Cowboys TE Jason Witten isn't ready to rule QB Tony Romo (back) out for Week 17 against the Philadelphia Eagles. "I wouldn't count him out until he's out," Witten said. "There's no question. That wouldn't surprise me, but I do think obviously this is different situation (it) seems like with the back and however that plays out. But you've got to prepare with Kyle (Orton) and go as if that's the case and then see how it plays out." Romo has not practiced so far this week.

Fantasy Tip: The Cowboys have stated that Romo probably won't need to practice in order to play in Week 17, but we think that's doubtful. You should already have planned to be without Romo this weekend. If he miraculously plays, deal with that decision later.
