The diagnosis on Tony Romo has gone from bad to worse and now the Cowboys are facing the prospect of going into next Monday night’s game against the Washington Redskins with several key pieces either missing or not at full strength.
Dez Bryant’s status is uncertain after missing Sunday’s contest against San Francisco. Miles Austin may be out until Week 6 and Felix Jones is dealing with a separated shoulder. In Jones’ case, there is a chance he will play in Week 3, but he’ll split carries with DeMarco Murray. Dallas’ running game has been underwhelming to say the least — the team has rushed for 109 combined yards in two games — so any backfield platoons will be of little interest to fantasy owners.
