Jason Garrett says Cowboys haven't decided QB Tony Romo's status for preseason opener

Jason Garrett says the Dallas Cowboys haven't decided whether Tony Romo will play in the preseason opener after the team's flagship radio station quoted the coach as saying it was "not going to be Tony's game."

Garrett said Saturday the coaching staff hasn't discussed playing rotations for the Hall of Fame game against Miami next Sunday in Canton, Ohio.

The Cowboys have an extra preseason game, and Garrett suggested to the radio station that the starters were more likely to debut in the second game against Oakland.

But Garrett wouldn't discuss specifics of any preseason plan when pressed by reporters a day after the radio station's report.

Romo would only play a handful of snaps, but he missed the entire offseason after having a cyst removed from his back.
