Jason Witten (spleen) and Miles Austin (hamstring) will not return during the pre-season. Dez Bryant (knee) stretched and jogged during the early stages of today’s workout but he, too, may not play in either of the team’s last two pre-season contests.
That means preparing for the Giants with minimal reps between Romo and his top receivers during the next two weeks. What has to happen for Dallas to be at its best in the season opener?
“You’ve got to have mental toughness,” Romo said. “I think everybody on the football team. At the end of the day, you’ve got to be at your best regardless of the circumstance ... If you’re lucky enough to get a guy like Jason or Miles back, that makes things a lot easier. But you still have to take the approach that you’ve got to be great today. And that’s the approach we take.”
