Despite being injured again, and facing 6-10 weeks out, Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones is keeping quarterback Tony Romo on the team’s active roster rather than move him to injured reserve (IR).

“We don’t have anybody valuable enough to take up that lost spot to give us the opportunity to see how [Romo] does,” Jones told 105.3 The Fan in Dallas. “There’s just not enough value there realistically to bring someone else in. That’s the deciding factor. You don’t have to spend a lot of time, going over and kind of circumcising a mosquito. … There’s nobody good enough to take that spot to give you a chance for that ‘if’ — if [Romo] can come back.”

The Cowboys will make Romo inactive for games until he is healthy. Until then, Dak Prescott will be the starter and Mark Sanchez is the backup. Romo remains in a back brace and he will undergo X-rays to check the healing process in the next week or so, according to Jones.
