Cowboys | Tony Romo to miss rest of season

Mon, 23 Dec 2013 13:27:15 -0800

Dallas Cowboys QB Tony Romo (back) has been ruled out for the season because of his back injury.

Cowboys | Tony Romo will be ready

Tue, 21 May 2013 09:12:00 -0700

Dallas Cowboys QB Tony Romo (back) said he will be ready for training camp in July after having minor surgery to remove a cyst on his back that will keep him out of organized team activities for the next three weeks. "If this was the regular season and I had to play next week, I could," Romo said. "This is just about being smart. That's why I did it now. This will have no effect on training camp. No way will it have an impact. And I still think there's a good chance I'm on the field for minicamp." The team does not fear that this will be a long-term injury, but they'll be cautious with him. Romo said the cyst was causing a constant ache in his back. QB Kyle Orton will work with the first-team offense with Romo out.

Fantasy Tip: Romo will miss valuable time during OTAs gaining chemistry with his receivers and tight ends, but he'll have plenty of time to regain that during the team's June minicamp and training camp in July. This shouldn't affect Romo's draft stock at all as a midrange No. 1 QB.

Cowboys | Happy with current quarterback depth

Mon, 04 Mar 2013 05:28:40 -0800

The Dallas Cowboys are happy with their quarterback pair of Tony Romo and backup Kyle Orton. The team is not expected to add a third-string quarterback or even look at the position during the free-agent market. Developing a long-term starting option at the quarterback position isn't a need right now so it likely will not take on a sense of urgency until future seasons.

Chiefs | Kyle Orton trying to win job for future

Mon, 19 Dec 2011 20:52:42 -0800

Kansas City Chiefs QB Kyle Orton led the team to a win in Week 15 over the previously unbeaten Green Bay Packers, making the organization's decision on what to do at the position that much more difficult. "If we win these next two games with him, and he continues to play the way he did today, then you might have to say that (Orton is the future)," interim head coach Romeo Crennel said Sunday, Dec. 18. Orton is a free agent after this season and QB Matt Cassel would be heading into the fourth season of a $63 million contract. The team could also sign someone from outside the organization, or draft a high-profile QB, but Orton is trying to make the decision a little more difficult.
