Report: Cowboys expected to sign Jon Kitna


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(12/24/2013) The Cowboys are expected to sign Jon Kitna as their third quarterback, reports the Fort Worth Star-Telegram. Kitna, 41, played for the Cowboys from 2009-11 and was out of football last year.

Report: Kitna to retire


(1/13/2012) The Dallas Morning News reports that QB Jon Kitna has informed the Cowboys that he intends to retire. A lingering back injury forced Kitna onto injured reserve in 2011. Stephen McGee is slated to be the Cowboys backup quarterback going forward.

Kitna's career comes to a close?


(12/14/2011) The Cowboys placed QB Jon Kitna (back) on IR on Wednesday. WR Dwayne Harris was elevated to the active roster to take Kitna's spot.

Kitna could be out for season


(11/28/2011) Cowboys Jason Garrett told reporters on Monday that QB Jon Kitna will likely miss a few more games and possibly even the rest of the season coach due to his back injury. Kitna, who is set to retire at the end of the season, was missed Dallas' last two games due to his ailment. The Cowboys play the Cardinals in Week 13.

Kitna sees first action of year


(9/19/2011) Dallas QB Jon Kitna played the majority of the third quarter on Sunday against San Francisco after Tony Romo was forced out of the game for a bit with a fractured rib. Kitna completed 6 of his 10 passes for 87 yards. He hit Miles Austin for a 5-yard touchdown strike, but also threw two interceptions. Romo replaced him in the fourth quarter and Kitna's day was done. Dallas ended up winning the game, 27-24, in overtime.

Kitna to remain in No. 2 role


(5/23/2011) The Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports that Cowboys QB Stephen McGee is the future backup to Tony Romo, but he will again be No. 3 in 2011 with Jon Kitna coming back. The Cowboys expressed their faith in McGee by not taking a quarterback in this year's draft. Kitna, who turns 39 in September, is not long for the job, leaving McGee as the apparent future backup to Tony Romo.

Kitna active, but as backup


(1/2/2011) Cowboys QB Jon Kitna (abdomen) was active for Week 17 against the Eagles but he served as the backup to Stephen McGee. He missed the entire week of practice after being injured last week.

Kitna misses practice again


(12/31/2010) Cowboys QB Jon Kitna (abdomen) finished an entire week of no practice when he failed to participate on Friday. Dallas plays at Philadelphia in Week 17 and Kitna will be a game-time decision according to coach Jason Garrett.

Kitna missing again Thursday


(12/30/2010) Cowboys QB Jon Kitna (abdomen) missed a second day of practice Thursday as Dallas continued preparations for its Week 17 game at Philadelphia. If Kitna can't start the game, Stephen McGee will.

Kitna watches practice


(12/29/2010) Stephen McGee has taken a step toward becoming the starting quarterback of the Dallas Cowboys this weekend. For the first time in his two-year career, McGee ran the first-team offense Wednesday. Jon Kitna watched from the sideline in street clothes. Interim coach Jason Garrett has said Kitna would start Sunday against Philadelphia if he's healthy. He has a strained abdominal muscle. "Right now, there's no pain in it just standing here," Kitna said. "But certain movements make it feel like there's a knife in your side. I've got to be able to throw the football. I've got to be able to make all the throws. ... This is one of those injuries that can kind of linger for three or four days and then it can just be gone. Hopefully that'll be the case."

Kitna might be able to start


(12/28/2010) The Dallas Morning News reports that Cowboys interim coach Jason Garrett said Monday that Jon Kitna (strained oblique) might be able to start in Week 17 at Philadelphia if he's healthy. Kitna was injured in Week 16 at Arizona. Stephen McGee, who began the season as the third QB on the depth chart, was forced to play the remainder of the Cardinals game and could start if Kitna's condition does not improve before Sunday's game against Philadelphia. The team plans to monitor Kitna's progress throughout the week. "His health will be the No. 1 factor at play," Garrett said. "Can he play? Can he practice well enough to play in this game on Sunday? So that's the No. 1 consideration. If he's not able to do that, we will play Stephen. But if he's able to do that, Jon will be our quarterback."

Kitna likely out Week 17


(12/27/2010) The Dallas Morning News reports that the Cowboys will likely use Stephen McGee as the starting QB for Week 17 at Philadelphia with Jon Kitna (strained oblique) not expected to play. Kitna was hurt in Saturday's loss at Arizona. This will be McGee's first NFL start, and the Cowboys plan to sign QB Chris Greisen to the practice squad Monday and quickly try to bring him up to speed. Dallas will prepare Greisen to be the backup for Sunday's finale, meaning Kitna could be inactive.

Kitna has painful Christmas


(12/25/2010) Dallas QB Jon Kitna had all kinds of problems in the first half of Saturday's Week 16 Christmas game in Arizona. Kitna threw interceptions returned for touchdowns on his first two series of plays and was down 14-0 without batting an eyelash. Both picks were more the receivers' -- Miles Austin and Roy Williams -- fault than Kitna's. Kitna also suffered two injuries in the first half. He injured his right knee with 7:17 left before halftime but returned one player later, after Stephen McGee entered, to lead the Cowboys to a score, finishing with a 2-yard TD pass to Jason Witten. Later, Kitna tried to warm up on the sidelines and was visibly in pain with his hip. He never returned before the half after going to the locker room with trainers with just under 5:00 to play. McGee finished up the rest of the game as Kitna was never able to return.

Kitna having very good season


(12/22/2010) Dallas QB Jon Kitna is coming off one of his better games heading into Week 16 in Arizona on Christmas. Kitna threw for 305 yards and two touchdowns without an interception last week against the Redskins. In fact, Kitna has completed 128 of 186 (68.8 pct.) passes for 1,501 yards with 11 TDs and just four picks for 103.8 QB rating in his last six games overall. His four 300-yard games this season are tied for his career-best mark.

Kitna throws two touchdown passes


(12/19/2010) Dallas QB Jon Kitna got his team into field-goal range with just under a minute to play in Week 15 against the Redskins. Washington had come all the way back to tie the score at 30-all until David Buehler nailed a game-winning 39-yard field goal. Kitna threw for 305 yards in the win on 25 of 37 passing. He had two touchdown passes and no interceptions in the performance. Kitna, who also rushed for 11 yards on four carries, threw a 3-yard TD pass to Miles Austin in the first quarter and then found Jason Witten in the end zone in the second quarter. He did not throw a touchdown pass after halftime.

Kitna looking plenty viable


(12/15/2010) Dallas QB Jon Kitna has looked like a viable Fantasy quarterback recently. In fact, heading into Week 15 at home against Washington, Kitna has gone 103 of 149 for 1,196 yards with nine touchdowns and four interceptions in his last five games for a quarterback rating of 102.1. He's coming off a 24-for-35 performance for 242 yards with two TDs and two picks Week 14 against Philadelphia. Kitna has been in double figures in Fantasy points in standard scoring leagues in five straight games.

Kitna solid again


(12/13/2010) Cowboys QB Jon Kitna had been hot in the four games leading up to the Week 14 game against the Eagles, completing nearly 70 percent of his passes for 954 yards with seven touchdowns against two interceptions. On Sunday night, the completion percentage was there (69 percent), but his TD to INT ratio was even at two while he threw for 242 yards. Both scores went to TE Jason Witten, who caught the first one from 1-yard out on the game's opening drive and a 22-yard strike in the seam in the fourth quarter. Both picks could have, and probably should have, been avoided. The first one was deflected off of WR Miles Austin and the second was on a 50/50 ball to WR Roy E. Williams, who appeared to slip coming out of his break to give the defender position. Kitna rallied the team back despite the blunders and cut the Philadelphia lead to three points before the Eagles ran the clock out after picking up some first downs on the ground. The 38-year-old carried the ball for 27 yards on three scrambles.

Kitna solid in last four


(12/11/2010) Cowboys QB Jon Kitna has excelled in relief of injured QB Tony Romo (clavicle) this season. In his last four games, he has taken it to another level. The 38 year-old has completed just a hair under 70 percent of his passes for 954 yards with seven touchdowns against two interceptions, giving him an astounding 107.9 QB rating. In Week 14, he will look to continue his solid play against the Eagles, whose pass defense ranks 17th in the league. They have allowed three of the last four QBs they have faced to manage at least 17 Fantasy points in standard CBSSports.com leagues.

Kitna leans on running game


(12/5/2010) Cowboys QB Jon Kitna had an efficient performance Week 13 at Indianapolis, completing 18 of 26 passes, including seven straight to begin the game. But he threw for only 167 yards, instead leaning on the running game against the Colts' 29th-ranked run defense. Tashard Choice and Felix Jones combined for 183 yards on the ground, and Kitna pitched in with 28 of his own on four carries. He did throw one touchdown pass, connecting with TE Jason Witten on a 2-yard toss in the front corner of the end zone for a crucial score in the fourth quarter.

Kitna faces tough pass defense


(12/2/2010) Cowboys QB Jon Kitna has played well in Jason Garrett's three games as coach, completing 69.3 percent of his passes for 787 yards with six touchdowns and two interceptions, but he's facing a Colts defense in Week 13 that ranks sixth against the pass, allowing 204.5 yards per game, and just gave up 185 yards to Chargers QB Philip Rivers, the man who entered the day as the NFL's passing leader. Kitna will also be facing a hostile crowd at Lucas Oil Stadium. “It’s always been a loud place," he said. "They do a great job with that on defense and know how to be quiet on offense.”

Kitna struggles on Thanksgiving


(11/25/2010) Dallas QB Jon Kitna struggled in Week 12 against New Orleans on Thanksgiving Day. He was 30 of 42 passing for 313 yards and one interception. He also added five carries for 20 yards. Kitna came into the game with seven total touchdowns and one interception in his previous two games. It was his fifth start since Tony Romo (collarbone) went down, and he now has three 300-yard games in those starts.

Kitna ready for Saints


(11/24/2010) Dallas QB Jon Kitna has been amazing for Fantasy owners since Jason Garrett took over as the head coach for Wade Phillips. In his past two games, Kitna has seven total touchdowns with one interception against the Giants and Detroit, and he’s averaging 31 Fantasy points over that span. But heading into Week 12 against the Saints on Thanksgiving Day could be a tough task. New Orleans could slow down Kitna’s production since the Saints are No. 2 in pass defense with only seven touchdowns allowed. Falcons QB Matt Ryan in Week 3 is the only quarterback to pass for multiple touchdowns against the Saints, and Kitna has been turnover-prone at times (he had six interceptions in his first two starts in place of the injured Tony Romo).

Kitna dominates former team


(11/21/2010) Dallas QB Jon Kitna put on a masterful performance on Sunday against Detroit, his former team, in Week 11. Starting again in place of the injured Tony Romo (collarbone), Kitna was 18 of 24 passing for 147 yards and three touchdowns. He also added four carries for 40 yards and a touchdown. Kitna connected with Dez Bryant and Miles Austin (twice) for his passing touchdowns, and his rushing touchdown was from 29 yards, which tied Roger Staubach for the longest touchdown run by a Cowboys quarterback. He hit eight different wide receivers for passes. "The people I'm playing with allow me to play at this level," Kitna said. "When they're playing like that, the quarterback position becomes easy."

Kitna to face former team


(11/18/2010) Dallas QB Jon Kitna is coming off his best game since replacing Tony Romo (collarbone) in Week 7, and he gets the chance to face his former team in Week 11 against Detroit. In Week 10 at the Giants, Kitna passed for 327 yards, three touchdowns and one interception. It was the first game with Jason Garrett as the new head coach, and you had to be impressed with the offensive showing, especially with Kitna’s ability to connect with Dez Bryant, Miles Austin and Felix Jones. It should continue this week against the Lions, who have allowed nine passing touchdowns on the road this season in five games.

Kitna, offense click in Week 10


(11/14/2010) Dallas QB Jon Kitna completed just 13 passes in Week 10, but would throw for more than 300 yards for the second time in a game since taking over for the injured Tony Romo. Kitna had 327 yards and three touchdowns passes and one interception in the Cowboys 33-20 win over the Giants. He also had four carries for 5 yards. He connected with rookie WR Dez Bryant for 104 yards, which was a career high for Bryant. Kitna a productive first half as he went 8 for 11 for 161 yards and a touchdown. On a two-minute drill to end the half he got called for a false start and then would throw an incomplete pass. The Cowboys then took a knee to send the game into the half. Kitna was sacked just once in the game and survived to play in Week 11 against Detroit. This was Kitna's first win since 2007.
