Dallas Cowboys coach Jason Garrett revealed in an interview on KRLD in Dallas that quarterback Tony Romo may not play at all in the Cowboys’ preseason debut Aug. 4 in the nationally-televised Hall of Fame Game in Canton, Ohio, Mike Fisher and RJ Choppy of CBS DFW reports.
“It’s one of those deals where I suppose he could play five plays or whatever, but we might lean to no plays,’’ Garrett said. “But the clock starts on our ‘1’s’ (first-teamers) in Week 2 of the preseason. So that’s not going to be Tony’s game.’’
The Cowboys play five preseason games this summer, the extra one being at the start of the schedule against the Dolphins in Canton.
“That’s going to be a Nick Stephens game and an Alex Tanney game,’’ Garrett said, suggesting it’s likely that veteran backup Kyle Orton will join Romo in wearing a ball cap all night.
