Tony Romo still wants to play this year


The Cowboys’ Thanksgiving loss ends any hope that they could make the playoffs this season. But quarterback Tony Romo still wants to return, even if it’s just for a couple meaningless games at the end of the year.

“Anytime there’s football games going on you always want to play,” Romo said, per the Dallas Morning News. “There’s no question about that.”

But there is a question about whether Romo will be ready to play, as his broken left collarbone is a few weeks from healing. And there is a question about whether the Cowboys want to risk further injury to Romo in meaningless games.

“I’m sure there will be discussions once I get healthy,” Romo said. “But for me, it’s football season and football players usually play football during football season.”
