Tony Romo is pictured here taking his usual quarterback reps with backup Kyle Orton. According to recent reports, taking QB reps is not something Romo will be doing much of in Canton, Ohio.
There has been speculation about just how much playing time, if any, Romo will see against the Miami Dolphins in the Hall of Fame game. The Dallas starter admitted to Carlos Mendez of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram that he won't play much in that exhibition, saying:
If I did play, it would be a series. Whether you went eight plays or three plays, I’m not sure how much that is going to affect that. Saying that, I still want to play every time I suit up.
Less Romo on Aug. 4 means that backup Kyle Orton is likely to run much of the Cowboys' first team offense that day. Orton attempted just 10 passes in the 2012 regular season, so he'll likely welcome the extra work in August.
