Tony Romo is ready to go but the Cowboys sign a quarterback to roster for insurance

Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo is listed as probable on the injury report and expected to play against the Giants with a bruised right hand.
However the Cowboys made a roster move Saturday to bolster their quarterback depth when they signed Chris Greisen to the active roster from the practice squad.
The Cowboys now have three quarterbacks available for Sunday's game against the Giants. Stephen McGee is the backup quarterback.
The Cowboys also  placed punter Mat McBriar on injured reserve today with a nerve injury in his foot and signed punter Chris Jones from the practice squad. McBriar had been battling drop foot for the much of the season. The team released guard Daniel Loper to make room for Greisen.

Stephen McGee is more than just another guy. Every time he's gotten an opportunity to play he's done well. A 83.5 QBR for a guy with only 3 games played is pretty darn good. McGee has a bright future either as a Cowboy or with someone else.

When will Jerry use a first round pick on a quarterback? Romo is injury prone and these other guys at that spot..are just guys!
