Cowboys unveil lengthy injury report for Colts game


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(12/19/2014) The Cowboys have listed 11 players on its final injury report for Sunday's game against Indianapolis. Defensive tackle Josh Brent (calf, personal) and outside linebacker Dekoda Watson (hamstring) were ruled out for the game. Tackle Doug Free (ankle) is doubtful, and guard Zack Martin (ankle) and running back DeMarco Murray (hand) are questionable.

Meanwhile, the following players were labeled probable: Strong safety Jeff Heath (thumb), middle linebacker Rolando McClain (knee), defensive back Tyler Patmon (knee, ankle), quarterback Tony Romo (back), defensive end George Selvie (thumb) and quarterback Brandon Weeden (personal).


Tony Romo practices Thursday, status for Sunday improving


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(11/6/2014) Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo returned to practice Thursday for the first time since suffering two small fractures in his back Oct. 27 against Washington. While Romo was throwing passing in individual drills, backup quarterback Brandon Weeden was still taking more reps, according to The Dallas Morning News.

"It’s sore,’" Romo said of his back following practice. “"It loosened up a little bit as we moved through it I think. Then, it just gets sore. The normal stuff."

While Romo stopped short of saying he will play Week 10, Cowboys owner Jerry Jones reiterated Thursday he still feels Romo will start Sunday's game in London against the Jaguars.

"I’m anticipating him playing," Jones said. "I have no reason to think that he won’t. Anytime he can play, we want him to play. We’re a better team, to be trite, with him playing. There’s no such thing as holding him out and foregoing the potential chance that we win."

Jones didn't stop Thursday talking about Romo's status for Week 10. He went on to talk about how much longer he feels Romo can play in the NFL, despite Romo's back problems, and what Romo has in store for when his playing days are over.

"I think Tony Romo has at least five years," Jones said. "I’m planning on him at least five years of playing at a level that would allow us to be a possible contender.

"He has aspirations and stated to me of potentially being an offensive coordinator in the NFL when he grows up. He has great ideas and very sound ideas."


Cowboys QB Tony Romo able to participate in walkthrough


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(11/4/2014) Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo (back) went through the walkthrough practice with the first-team offense Tuesday, according to the Fort Worth Star-Telegram. Romo said his back feels better after the long flight to London, but he doesn't know if he will practice Wednesday as the team prepares for Week 10 against the Jaguars.

Early indications are the Cowboys are expecting Romo to be back in the lineup Week 10 after sitting out Week 9. However, if he is sidelined again, Brandon Weeden will be back under center for Dallas.


Hopefully one and done for Brandon Weeden


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(11/2/2014) Cowboys backup quarterback Brandon Weeden, who was starting in place of an injured Tony Romo, didn't endear himself to Fantasy owners with his performance Week 9 against Arizona. After doing his best Romo impression in relief duty Week 8 against Washington, he looked more like the Weeden who struggled for two years as the Browns' starter in this one, completing 18 of 33 passes for 183 yards with one touchdown and two interceptions.

And that was against a defense that entered the day ranked dead last against the pass.

The touchdown didn't even come until garbage time, when Weeden hooked up with star wide receiver Dez Bryant with about a minute to go after failing to connect with him on every drive prior to that one.

It was confirmation enough that Weeden won't be a relevant contributor in Fantasy for as long as he's replacing Romo. Owner Jerry Jones said afterward that he's betting on Romo returning Week 10 at Jacksonville, so that's encouraging.


Jerry Jones says team 'betting' on Tony Romo playing Week 10


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(11/2/2014) In the wake of Brandon Weeden's disastrous performance Sunday, Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said quarterback Tony Romo (back) will make the trip to London for the Week 10 game against the Jaguars. While Jones said he did not know for sure if Romo will play, he added, "We're betting on it."

Same old Brandon Weeden shows up Week 9


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(11/2/2014) Cowboys backup quarterback Brandon Weeden entered his first start with Dallas with a 5-15 record as a starter. Weeden lived down to his reputation, throwing two interceptions and one meaningless touchdown in the 28-17 home loss to Arizona.

Weeden did not throw a completion to a wideout until the fourth quarter. He finished 18 of 33 for 183 yards, including a 3-yard score to Dez Bryant with 1:08 left in the game. Weeden missed on his first six throws to Bryant, giving his star receiver no chance.

Weeden threw late on both his interceptions and averaged a paltry 5.5 yards per attempt. The Cowboys hope Tony Romo (back) will be ready to start Week 10 against the Jaguars in London.


Cowboys QB Tony Romo inactive versus Cards


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(11/2/2014) The Cowboys declared quarterback Tony Romo inactive for Sunday's game against the Cardinals, meaning Brandon Weeden will start. Romo took a knee to the back last Monday against the Redskins and has been diagnosed with two small fractures.

Dallas plays Jacksonville in London in Week 10. CBS Sports NFL Insider Jason La Canfora reports that barring a setback, Romo will face the Jaguars.


Report: Tony Romo (back) out for Sunday vs. Cardinals


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(11/2/2014) Tony Romo will miss his first start of the season Sunday when the Cowboys face the Cardinals, reports NFL.com's Desmond Purnell, who cites a source close to the quarterback.

Romo was injured in Monday night's loss to the Redskins after he took a knee to the back. He was temporarily forced from the game before returning late in the fourth quarter. Romo was later diagnosed with two small fractures in his back.

Romo might even miss more than one game, according to NFL.com NFL Insider Ian Rapoport. The Cowboys coaches are already planning for the possibility of Romo not making the trip to London for the team's game against the Jaguars in Week 10. The Cowboys will be on a bye the following week, which could be the time Romo needs for the back pain to disappear.

The 34-year-old spent much of the offseason recovering from back surgery (he has had two such surgeries in 18 months), and his inability to suit up against Arizona indicates that, despite owner Jerry Jones saying Romo's status was a matter of "pain tolerance," the injury could be something more than that.

If Romo isn't on the field for the 1 p.m. ET kickoff, that means backup Brandon Weeden, the Browns' former first-round pick who signed with Dallas in the offseason, will make his first start for the Cowboys. In limited duty last week, Weeden completed 4 of 6 passes for 69 yards, and led two scoring drives.


Report: Cowboys QB Tony Romo 'very questionable' for Week 9


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(11/1/2014) In an interview on CBS Sports Radio Saturday, Jon Machota of the Dallas Morning News called Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo "very questionable" for Sunday's contest against the Cardinals in Week 9, per CBS Senior Fantasy Writer Dave Richard.

According to a report earlier in the day, Romo is dealing with two fractures in the transverse process in his back. If he's not ready to play, the team will turn to Brandon Weeden for the start. Because the Cowboys have a bye in Week 11, Machota laid out a scenario where the team may sit him out Sunday and then in Week 10 in London against the Jaguars, giving him three full weeks of rest before a Week 12 against the Giants.


Cowboys QB Tony Romo questionable for Sunday


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(10/31/2014) Considering he's been deemed a game-time decision, it comes as no surprise that the Cowboys list quarterback Tony Romo as questionable for Sunday against Arizona.

Romo took a knee to the back Monday night and has been ailing since. He did not practice Friday.

His absence would force backup Brandon Weeden into action.


Cowboys QB Tony Romo red-lighted again Friday


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(10/31/2014) Cowboys prolific quarterback Tony Romo is again absent from practice Friday with a back ailment that has kept him out all week. Each missed session strengthens the possibility that he will not play Sunday against Arizona and that Brandon Weeden will start in his place.

Despite his continued inactivity in practice, however, the Cowboys have indicated that Romo remains a game-time decision.


Tony Romo says Week 9 status not about pain tolerance


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(10/29/2014) Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo said his status for Sunday's game against Arizona depends not on pain tolerance but on his ability "to be productive in some fashion," reports the Dallas Morning News.

"If it turns out to be just the pain tolerance, I will play," Romo said. "That part has never been an issue. But you’ve got to wait to see.

"It will be about your ability to be productive in some fashion. That part of it, we will continue to evaluate."

Romo took a knee to his back in the third quarter Monday night. He underwent a CT scan Tuesday, but the team hasn't specified what was found.

"I don’t want to get into specifics about what it is," Romo said. "It will be something you’ll look at each day, figure out a way to manage it and go from there.

"It has nothing to do with back surgery or anything like that. It could have happened years ago and it would have been the same thing. It’s part of playing football."

To play Sunday, Romo said, "at a certain point there needs to be a shift in the way you feel that shows you’re able to do the fundamental things that need to get done. From there, you need to get the doctor’s clearance.

"You take those steps and go."

Romo, who had offseason back surgery, did not practice Wednesday. Brandon Weeden would start if Romo can't play Sunday.


Brandon Weeden plays well in relief


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(10/28/2014) Cowboys backup quarterback Brandon Weeden replaced Tony Romo in the third quarter of Monday's loss to the Redskins and looked good, hitting 4 of 6 throws for 69 yards and a touchdown. Weeden found a wide-open Jason Witten for a 25-yard touchdown with 9:27 left in the game.

Romo was able to return late in the fourth quarter, so Weeden likely will be back on the bench Week 9 against Arizona.


Report: Tony Romo wants to return to game


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(10/27/2014) While the Cowboys say quarterback Tony Romo is being evaluated and his status is unknown, ESPN's Lisa Salters reported Romo is telling medical staff he wants to return to the game against the Redskins. Romo appeared to injure his surgically-repaired back on a third-quarter sack.

Cowboys owner Jerry Jones told Salters there's a chance Romo could return. Brandon Weeden has taken over at quarterback.


Brandon Weeden gets the start, finds end zone in opener


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(8/8/2014) With Tony Romo sidelined, Cowboys backup quarterback Brandon Weeden got the start for Thursday's preseason opener against the Chargers. 

Weeden played the first half of the game and hooked up with James Hanna for a 4-yard touchdown in the second quarter. He completed 13 of 17 passes for 107 yards ad a touchdown. He also had one run for a gain of 10 yards. 

Weeden will likely be relegated to backup duties, as Romo is expected to return for the second preseason game, Aug. 16 against Baltimore.

Brandon Weeden could play entire first half


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(8/6/2014) Cowboys quarterback Brandon Weeden will start Thursday's game against the Chargers and play as much as a half, reports the Fort Worth Star-Telegram. Tony Romo is sitting out as the team manages his comeback from back surgery.

"It’ll be good to be out there with those guys," Weeden said. “We’ve got some great offensive weapons. I’m excited to be able to go out and compete with those guys. It’s the first time with the star on my helmet, and it feels good. It’s very exciting."

Signed in the offseason, Weeden will back up Romo. Caleb Hanie and Dustin Vaughn are the quarterbacks behind Weeden.

"He just needs to play," Cowboys coach Jason Garrett said of Weeden. "If you know his biography, his time he spent in baseball, a two-year stint at Oklahoma State and playing in a couple of different systems in Cleveland.

"He just needs to takes snaps. He has a lot of natural ability. You can see that. He is really good throwing the football. He can throw any kind of ball you want him to throw. He just needs to take snaps, and to see him grow when he gets an opportunity to take snaps, make mistakes, make plays and learn from it all."

Brandon Weeden moves up to No. 2


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(7/16/2014) With the Cowboys' release of Kyle Orton, Brandon Weeden will enter the season as the backup quarterback behind Tony Romo. Weeden went 0-5 as a starter last year with the Browns, throwing nine touchdowns and nine interceptions.

But Dallas coaches have been impressed with Weeden, who took all the first-team reps during OTAs and minicamp while Romo recovered from back surgery.


Brandon Weeden not worried about Kyle Orton's decision


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(7/8/2014) The Cowboys still don't know whether backup quarterback Kyle Orton will play this season. But Brandon Weeden said the uncertainty is not affecting his preparation.

"I’m going to go about my business the same way regardless. I haven’t met Kyle, so I can’t really speak on it, but whatever he decides to do – it’s kind of out of my control," Weeden told the team's website. "So what I’m worried about is, if I’m running with the twos out there, do my job to make the twos better. I want to make the team better any way I can, so it doesn’t change my mindset or the way I feel about it."

Weeden said his goal is to earn the backup job, regardless of whether Orton shows up.


Brandon Weeden provides insurance for Kyle Orton


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(5/18/2014) The Cowboys anticipate quarterback Kyle Orton participating in the mandatory June minicamp, but if he retires they'll move forward with Brandon Weeden as Tony Romo's backup, reports the Dallas Morning News.

"Well, that's the plan," quarterbacks coach Wade Wilson said. "That's one of the reasons we signed [Weeden]. We're still hopeful that Kyle will be here, but if he doesn't, we feel really good about Brandon, especially since he's going through our offseason program."


Brandon Weeden: 'Tried to do too much'


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(4/6/2014) Cowboys quarterback Brandon Weeden looked back on his time with the Browns with some regret.

"It wasn't an ideal situation," Weeden told SiriusXM NFL Radio. "The regime that drafted me was out a year after I got there. You never know the plans the group coming in has and I think, as a player, as much as you try not to do too much, try not to put too much pressure on yourself to perform and show you can be the guy for the long haul, sometimes you get caught up in it.

"You try to do too much as a player and that's one thing if I could change about myself, I wouldn't try to do too much every Sunday. I think, just let the game kind of come to you and be more patient."

Weeden is excited to be in Dallas, where's he's the third QB behind Tony Romo and Kyle Orton. "I was ready for kind of a clean slate and a fresh start," he said.


Cowboys sign Brandon Weeden to two-year deal


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(3/17/2014) Former Browns quarterback Brandon Weeden agreed to a two-year deal with the Cowboys, NFL Network reported on Monday. Weeden was reportedly favored by the Cowboys during the 2013 NFL Draft. He will back up Tony Romo this season. 

Weeden went 0-5 as a starter last season. He threw nine touchdowns against nine interceptions while completing 52.8 percent of his passes.


Browns release Brandon Weeden


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(3/12/2014) The Browns released quarterback Brandon Weeden, who went 0-5 as a starter last season. He threw nine touchdowns against nine interceptions while completing 52.8 percent of his passes.

Browns 'surely will eat' Brandon Weeden's contract


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(2/27/2014) Browns quarterback Brandon Weeden has a $2 million contract guarantee that "might make him untradeable, but the Browns surely will eat it rather than bring him back," reports ESPNCleveland.com. The team is fully expected to release Weeden, who has two years left on his contract.

Browns will decide Brandon Weeden's future 'in time'


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(2/21/2014) Browns general manager Ray Farmer said a decision on quarterback Brandon Weeden will be coming "in time" on if he will return to Cleveland in 2014, reports the Cleveland Plain-Dealer.

"Do I think he can be a winning quarterback in the NFL?" said Farmer. "Let me say this. When we grade players, we grade them on what they've done, specifically when you're in the National Football League. The college draft, from my perspective, is a projection. You put a grade on a players based on what you think he becomes in one to two years’ time. Once you’re in the National Football league, you’re graded upon your performance and what you were able to achieve at that moment. With that being said, everybody’s performance warrants a grade that is relative of that performance. We have a grade on Brandon. We know what that grade is. In time, his agent and he will both know where we stand with Brandon and he will be able to release than information."


Sources: Brandon Weeden wants out of Cleveland


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(2/12/2014) Multiple sources suggest Browns quarterback Brandon Weeden wants out of Cleveland

"Given the turmoil with the coaching staff and lack of public support from the most recent front office, he's interested in a fresh start with a clean slate and an opportunity to compete to show he has the talent to develop into a productive player in the league," NFL Network reporter Mike Silver said Tuesday.

Weeden has struggled in two years (and two different regimes) with the Browns. If he stays with them it will be with his third coaching staff in as many seasons. 

Silver suggested the Buccaneers, Cardinals and Texans as potential landing spots for the 30-year-old passer. Two of his previous playcallers, Norv Turner and Pat Shurmur, are in Minnesota and Philadelphia, respectively.
