Summary

Tony Romo is 36 years old and has broken his collarbone twice in the last year-plus. It's understandable that Dallas may need to start preparing for the post-Romo era. That said, the Cowboys huddle remains definitively in Romo's hands for 2016 and likely a few years beyond. In 2015 the Cowboys looked like a potential Super Bowl contender and Romo had an MVP-caliber season; leading the league in completion rate, yards per attempt and passer rating. Romo ranks 3rd all time in passer rating, 4th in adjusted yards/attempt and 4th in completion rate. He's an elite passer and is as good as anyone in the league when healthy. The Cowboys hope an offseason surgery known as the "Mumford Procedure" will seriously reduce the risk of future injuries to his collarbone. Assuming Romo has a clean bill of health in the preseason, expect the Cowboys offense to return to 2014 form (5th in points) versus last season's debacle (31st in points). (August 16)

Cowboys | Tony Romo may need MRI (Fri Aug 26, 01:36 PM) - Dallas Cowboys RB Tony Romo (back) could have an MRI on his back, and a decision is expected Friday, Aug. 26. The injury appears minor for now.

Our View: Romo is at the point in his career where any injury is a problem because of the numerous issues he has come back from over the years. His back already required kid glove care, and this early injury, however minor, is something that reminds us that he more than any quarterback probably has an expiration date on his play this year.

Cowboys | Tony Romo out for game (Thu Aug 25, 10:59 PM) - Updating a previous report, Dallas Cowboys QB Tony Romo will not return against the Seattle Seahawks Thursday, Aug. 25, due to a coach's decision. He left after three plays with a tight back.

Our View: Romo's injury isn't serious, but the way he moved and took the hit foreshadows an injury at some point this year. Good thing Dak Prescott appears to be ready to pilot a limited pass offense - which is all the Cowboys need to be with their outstanding running game and line.

Cowboys | Tony Romo tweaks back (Thu Aug 25, 10:21 PM) - Dallas Cowboys QB Tony Romo (back) exited against the Seattle Seahawks Thursday, Aug. 25, and was holding his back. He tried to return to the field, but he was called back by coaches.

Our View: Reset the "days since a Romo incident" clock back to zero and reach for the Pepto Bismol. It's going to be a long season. This sort of thing is just one of the reasons we see him as no more than a QB2.

Cowboys | Dak Prescott makes most of chance (Sat Aug 13, 11:08 PM) - Dallas Cowboys rookie QB Dak Prescott made the start in the preseason opener Saturday, Aug. 13, against the Los Angeles Rams with QB Tony Romo resting. Prescott sizzled, completing 10 of his 12 pass attempts for 139 yards and two touchdowns, including one to Dez Bryant. His two incompletions were dropped passes, too.

Our View: Prescott is an intriguing dynasty prospect, and he could be groomed as the QB of the future for the Cowboys. The rookie from Mississippi State reminds us of Donovan McNabb because of his arm strength and athleticism combination. We're interested in seeing his growth and development as a pro.
