2016 was supposed to be Tony Romo’s year. The Dallas Cowboys added Ezekiel Elliott to their offense with the fourth overall pick in the draft. They had the league’s No. 1 ranked offensive line and a borderline-elite wideout in Dez Bryant returning. Plus, a serviceable defense that could keep a game close. However, the landscape of the Cowboys, and perhaps, Romo’s career was turned upside down on one play in the preseason.
For the first time since sustaining his back injury, Romo participated in practice last week, albeit was in a limited fashion.
