Tony Romo Wants To Play In HoF Game This Sunday

Dallas Cowboys QB Tony RomoTony Romo did not practice in the offseason leading up to training camp due to a surgery that removed a cyst which was located in his back. But the Dallas Cowboys’ quarterback has stated that he is ready to go, and wants to suit up for the opening preseason game in Canton, Ohio where the Cowboys are scheduled to play the Miami Dolphins.

Romo told the media this week that he wanted to suit up for the game and get some throws in, though it would likely be for just one series. Team doctors have been closely following the throws and reps that Romo has taken since the start of training camp. By all appearances, Romo will be ready for the full preseason and regular season.

Dallas will need him, because the NFC East Division doesn’t look like it will be any easier. The Cowboys missed out on the playoffs last season, losing the division to Washington in the final week of the regular season. It’s a feeling that the entire team, including Romo, will have carried with them throughout the offseason.

Romo threw for a career-best 4,920 in the 2012 NFL regular season, which blew away his previous mark by more than 400 yards. But it’s his moments in big games and big situations that continues to be questioned, and that won’t change until he breaks through.
