Report: Tony Romo won't play for Cowboys on Sunday

The Dallas Cowboys are preparing to open the preseason minus the services of quarterback Tony Romo.

Multiple sources told Calvin Watkins of on Friday that Romo won't play in Sunday's Hall of Fame Game against the Miami Dolphins.

Romo hasn't missed a practice during training camp after surgery in April to remove a cyst from his back. The Cowboys starter expressed hope Monday in suiting up against the Dolphins, but said he'd go along with whatever coach Jason Garrett decided.

It's no surprise the Cowboys would take its time dipping Romo into action. The Cowboys have five preseason games this summer, so there's plenty of chances for snaps. The Cowboys plays the Oakland Raiders in their second preseason game Aug. 9. It's a good bet we'll get our first taste of Tony next Friday.
