But quarterback Tony Romo said the Cowboys will not have to radically adjust their offensive game plan for Sunday’s game against the Giants at Cowboys Stadium, even with leading rusher Murray sidelined by a sprained foot.
“No, I don’t think you take that approach. You’re still fundamentally going to have your stuff and your core things,” Romo said. “At the same time, you have to still come up with ideas that work against them. You’re still playing against their concepts. You use some of the stuff you did last time, you’ll get rid of something else. It’s all about how well you did, how well it works and at the same time, the adjustments on game day.”
This time around, Romo will be able to throw to a healthy tight end Jason Witten (33 catches, 320 yards, 1 TD). Witten was a surprise, game-day addition to the Cowboys’ active roster in the opener and grabbed two passes for 10 yards in his first game back from a lacerated spleen.
