With Kitna-mania booming among Dallas Cowboys fans, injured quarterback Tony Romo has become yesterday’s trend.
Kitna is now leading Romo 2-1 in games won by the starting quarterback this season.
But Romo is far from forgotten by the Cowboys coaching staff. And he’s not idly sitting by while the Jason Garrett regime is gaining experience.
“He’s in early,” Garrett said of Romo, who has not been available for comment in recent weeks after breaking his left clavicle. “He’s in that training room at 7 a.m. every morning. And he’s in our meetings.
“Once we go out on the practice field they have a whole regimen for him to go through some different rehab stuff. He’s very much involved. The ideas keep coming, and he’s engaged with our football team.”
The Cowboys need to win every game to have a chance to make the playoffs. Romo might be able to return for the last two games of the year -- Christmas Day in Arizona and in Philadelphia on Jan. 2.
If the Cowboys lose even one game, they could decide to keep Romo out for the rest of the season. But right now, Garrett said Romo is doing everything he can to be ready if needed.
