The Dallas Cowboys haven’t brought QB Tony Romo fully back to practice yet, but he appears to be getting closer. For the first time since the end of August, he’s doing individual drills.
That being said, he’s certainly not 100 percent yet. As Ian Rapoport noted:
“As the Cowboys hit the practice field to prepare for the Eagles, QB Tony Romo (back) won’t be among them. Still rehabbing, still not ready.”
Romo was hurt in the preseason game against the Seahawks, injuring a back that has caused him a lot of problems over the years. He was also trying to come back from the pair of collarbone injuries that knocked him out for the majority of last year. While that doesn’t seem to be giving him any issues, the back is still not quite where it needs to be.
The Cowboys do have the luxury of being careful with him. Rookie Dak Prescott has led them to a 5-1 record and looks like the best rookie QB in the league – and that’s with Philly’s Carson Wentz playing very good football. It will be interesting to see the two of them square off against each other in a divisional rivalry game.
There are even those who believe the Cowboys should just keep going with Prescott as long as he’s winning. The Cowboys will have to make that choice at some point, though they haven’t been forced to do it yet. Until Romo is 100 percent, his injury makes it easier to determine their depth chart.
