In his first game since injuring his back in December, Cowboys QB Tony Romo returns to football on Saturday against the Baltimore Ravens.
The Dallas Cowboys announced on Friday that QB Tony Romo would start Saturday’s preseason game against the Baltimore Ravens, but will likely not play him long in the exhibition game.
After missing Week 17 of the 2013 NFL season due to a herniated disk suffered against the Washington Redskins the week before, Tony Romo finally returned to practice this week and led the Cowboys in two joint practices with the Oakland Raiders.
”I felt like this was a big week for Tony,” TE Jason Witten told the Associated Press. ”I felt like this was a really big week for our team and felt he’s done a really great job setting the tempo for us.”
Romo suffered his injury against the Redskins on the Cowboys’ game-winning drive, but was forced to miss the season finale against the Eagles, where the winner would be crowned the NFC East Champion. The Cowboys lost the game and finished with their third straight 8-8 season after losing a division title game.
Romo is a 3-time Pro Bowler and the Cowboys’ all-time leader in passing TDs, yards/game and fourth-quarter comebacks.
