Dallas Cowboys waive QB Brandon Weeden; Romo nears return
IRVING, Texas (AP) — The Dallas Cowboys waived quarterback Brandon Weeden on Tuesday with the possibility of Tony Romo's return this weekend after missing seven games with a broken collarbone.
Weeden went 0-3 filling in for Romo and Matt Cassel was 0-4. It's the longest slide by Dallas since the team lost seven straight while going 1-15 under Jimmy Johnson in 1989.
Romo is eligible to play again for Dallas (2-7), but it is not yet known if he will play Sunday at Miami (4-5). Coach Jason Garrett said Monday that the 35-year-old quarterback who's had broken ribs, two broken collarbones and three back injuries will practice this week.
If Romo "practices well," Garrett says, he will play against the Dolphins.
