Jerry Jones: Romo still Cowboys’ No. 1 QB when healthy

Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones isn’t backing off of his statement when it comes to quarterback Tony Romo.For years, the refrain for the Dallas Cowboys has been the same: If Tony Romo is healthy, they’re playoff contenders. Prescott has led Dallas to a 4-1 start and has thrown over 1,200 yards and four touchdowns in the first five weeks of the season. “Now I don’t want to take anything – presume that Dak is going to be necessarily healthy”. The Cowboys do have the luxury of having two-star quarterbacks at this point, but the reality of it all is that there can only be one, ESPN reported. The fourth-round pick on Sunday found six different receivers, completing 18 of 24 passes for 227 yards and a touchdown without an interception.The two were talking about the National Football League rookie rushing record that Dickerson set in 1983, when he ran for 1,808 yards, a mark he thinks will last longer than his single-season record of 2,105.Romo is scheduled to undergo an MRI on Monday, amid speculation he could return for the October 30 showdown against the Eagles.While speaking on 105.3 The Fan on Tuesday morning, Jones, however, would not say when Romo would be able to return to game action. He was feeling good about things.Let’s give some credit to head coach Jason Garrett, who is often the lightning rod for criticism when things don’t go the Cowboys way. Elliott had 64 yards in the first quarter, igniting two touchdown drives, then zipped 60 yards for a touchdown on Dallas’ first play of the second half.”Everybody needs to take a deep look at their self”, said Bengals cornerback Adam Jones, who was still known as Pacman when he played for the Cowboys. In fact, he is just eight passes away from breaking Tom Brady’s record of 163 attempts without an interception, Bleacher Report reported.Consider this: In three of the last five games Romo has played, including the preseason, he has fractured a bone. Prescott has four straight games with a completion percentage above 70 and a quarterback rating above 100. The team utterly dominated the Bengals for most of the contest, and at one point they held a 28-0 lead.The Cowboys are reportedly eyeing the Week 8 game against the NFC East-rival Philadelphia Eagles – what likely could be a contest that puts either team in the division driver’s seat – as the return of Romo. “Standing right here, right now, I think it’s very fixable and we need to fix it”. “But the reality is, Tony’s going to come back for us and play great, we believe”.
