Bet on the NFL Despite being sidelined with a fractured collarbone, Cowboys’ quarterback Tony Romo remains highly involved in matters at Valley Ranch, from week-to-week preparation, to his own rehabilitation. When betting on football and the Cowboys it's important to know when their top QB is on the bench. Romo underwent x-rays on Monday, which revealed little other than that he had a fractured collarbone--which, of course, everyone already knew. But if Romo has anything to say about it, he’ll at least be ready to play before the season is out; what’s more, Jerry Jones has indicated that, once physically ready, Romo will play regardless of the team’s record, or Jon Kitna’s performance. Which is to say, if Jones has his way, and he will, Romo will play again this season.
Garrett says that Romo is in training room very early every morning, at least 7 am. He also regularly attends meetings, rehab etc. He is still a part of the team. The doctors evaluate him regularly to monitor his process.
It remains possible that Tony Romo could return to quarterback the Dallas Cowboys this season should they continue their upward trend under coach Jason Garrett and quarterback Jon Kitna, The Fort Worth Star-Telegram reported Tuesday.
The thinking goes that if the Cowboys (3-7) continue to win, Romo could return for a Week 16 game against the Arizona Cardinals on Christmas night and the season finale against the Philadelphia Eagles the following Sunday. However, the next Cowboys loss likely would extinguish any remaining playoff hope. If that happens, the team might shut down Romo for the season.
Garrett said Romo, whom the team hasn't placed on season-ending injured reserve, has worked out diligently since breaking his left clavicle during an Oct. 25 game against the New York Giants. When sports betting note the Cowboys are 1-6 in games that Romo has started this season and 2-1 in Kitna's starts.
