Tony Romo: Dak Prescott has ‘earned the right’ to be Cowboys QB
Breaking his silence Tuesday, Tony Romo acknowledged his place behind Dak Prescott with the Dallas Cowboys while still expressing a competitive fire.
In his first comments this season, Romo read from a prepared statement and did not take questions ahead of his anticipated return Sunday as a backup to the rookie quarterback. Romo broke a bone in his back during an Aug. 25 preseason game, with Prescott taking over as the starter and excelling in his place.
Romo said Prescott deserved to maintain the starting role after leading the Cowboys to eight consecutive wins.
“He’s earned the right to be our quarterback,” Romo said. “As hard as that is for me to say, he’s earned that right. He’s guided our team to an 8-1 record and that’s hard to do.”
