The Cowboys upcoming quarterback controversy is a fascinating one. Rookie 4th round pick from Mississippi State, Dak Prescott has led the Cowboys to a 6-1 record. Dallas isn’t seriously considering going back to Tony Romo are they? NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport gave an update on when Tony Romo could return.

“The Cowboys really don’t know,” Rapoport said when asked when Romo might return. “But it is important to note what actually happened in practice this week. I’m told it is merely a good start for Romo. He has not even taken real team reps yet, and until he does that, he’s not even in consideration to be — forget about the starter — even the backup. So it certainly seems like the Cowboys are a little ways away from getting Romo on the field. Meanwhile, it seems like they are inclined to ride the hot hand, which means as long as Dak Prescott succeeds, expect him to stay in there.”

I wonder if it is one of those instances where Romo is okay to return but, the team is holding him back longer than what’s required. If Dak Prescott wasn’t playing well, Romo would be in the lineup today make no mistake about it. Frankly as long as Prescott is playing well he has to remain the starter.
