Cowboys coach Jason Garrett told reporters prior to practice on Friday the team will closely monitor the quarterback’s movement during the session. The team later annouced that Romo is questionable for Sunday’s game against the Arizona Cardinals.
“We’re going to see what he’s able to do today in practice,” Garrett said. “Getting his rehab, getting his treatment and really taking it day by day, so we’ll see what he’s able to accomplish.”
Garrett had hoped to see Romo make some progress in Thursday’s practice, but he acknowledged Friday that Romo “did not do a whole lot.” The Cowboys will need to see Romo moving better before making him the starter Cardinals.
“Obviously, we have to see him move around at some point before the game starts, so hopefully he can do something today,” he said. “We’ll have a walk-through tomorrow, and we still got about 48 hours until the game, so we want to give him every chance.”
Brandon Weeden will start against the Cardinals if Romo can’t go. Garrett said Weeden has gotten work with the first-team since OTAs and is comfortable with the Dallas offense. The quarterback performed well in spot duty against the Washington Redskins on Monday night.
