Despite a rash of injuries in training camp that have limited his work with the team’s top receivers and starting offensive linemen, Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo declared the team’s time in California “a really, really, really good camp for the Dallas Cowboys.”
Romo said the injuries, as long as they are of the short-team variety, have allowed young players to get more reps than they might have gotten otherwise. Notable in that group on offense would be receiver Cole Beasley and running back Jamize Olawale, who have emerged in camps as candidates to make the 53-player roster.
“This was a great start to the season, with the effort and commitment,” Romo said. “I know we’ve got some guys banged up, and so we’ve got to get a lot of guys healthy. But we laid the foundation and it was a really, really, really good camp for the Dallas Cowboys.”
