The Dallas Cowboys have been facing controversies since the start of the NFL season. However, one of the biggest blows to the football team is the injury of Tony Romo in Week 2. The celebrated quarterback incurred a collarbone injury in the Dallas Cowboys' game against the Philadelphia Eagles. The said injury prompted the Dallas Cowboys to sideline Romo, which subsequently affected the standing of the NFL team. At the moment, Jerry Jones' football squad holds a record of 2-7 following their defeat in the hands of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
However, there appears to be hope left for the Dallas Cowboys fans and followers. Reports now claim that Romo might be back in the field for the NFL team's match against the Miami Dolphins on Sunday (November 22). The said football face-off will be a road match for the Dallas Cowboys, who will be traveling to Miami Dolphins territory for the 1:00 pm ET game at the Sun Life Stadium in Miami, Florida.
"Tony is a great competitor, he's somebody who really competes at everything he does - every minute of every day," shared Jason Garett, according to the official press release of the NFL team. The Dallas Cowboys head coach went on to state, "So we anticipate him to come back. He competed in the walkthrough - he just got off the field - and he'll compete the rest of the day, the rest of the week, and he'll certainly compete on Sunday."
Meanwhile, the Dallas Cowboys are facing yet another injury in the team. Dez Bryant is said to be struggling with his injuries from the previous games. However, Garrett appears to be optimistic on the status of the NFL star.
"He [Byant] went through the walkthrough and had a good walkthrough; don't anticipate him being a full participant in practice," the head coach disclosed. He added, "Hopefully he can do something. He'll be limited though. But had a good walkthrough and hopefully he'll continue to get treatment and be ready to go tomorrow."
Another problematic NFL star in the Dallas Cowboys roster is Greg Hardy. It could be recalled that Hardy had been involved in a legal battle prior to his signing with the Romo football squad. This domestic violence case was dragged on to his stint with the Dallas Cowboys, with the rest of the NFL community urging owner Jones to suspend the erring football star. To add to his issues, Hardy had been captured on camera arguing with the coaching staff of the Dallas Cowboys during an NFL game. Moreover, he got into an altercation with teammate Bryant. Reports claim that the latest problem posed by Hardy for the Dallas Cowboys is his tardiness in meetings.
"I don't want to get into any specifics about a player and him being late or missing things," revealed Garrett, according to ESPN. The head coach added, "Suffice it to say that we have standards here with the Cowboys, that if a player were to miss something or be late for something, we address it in-house, and we address it the right way."
The Dallas Cowboys have been criticized over the manner by which the team handles their NFL stars. Some members of the football community believe that Jones is not instilling enough discipline among his players - a management method frowned upon by other teams including the Philadelphia Eagles and the Seattle Seahawks. Apart from Hardy, the behavior of Bryant had been criticized as well. The said player's recent outburst against the media and his fellow teammates had been deemed to be setting a precedent to other NFL stars - that is, it might encourage others to follow suit.
Hence, fans of the Dallas Cowboys are urging the top executives to mete out suitable punishments to the players. One of the most popular suggestions is suspending the erring NFL stars. Another is to take out the damages from their paychecks to ensure that the players understand the gravity of their errors.
"Get your butt down to the locker room Jerry and you discipline," advised Norm Hitzges, a long-time sports analyst for the Dallas Cowboys, during his radio show The Ticket 1310 AM/96.7 FM. The irate commentator further said, "You go locker to locker and tell Cole Beasley, 'Shove that phone as far up as it goes baby. You're off Twitter.' And, 'Dez, you do that again we are going to have to a serious monetary talk pal, and I don't care if I have to discipline you.' Or Hardy, or name it. Pick anybody else who steps out of line, 'I can lose without you guys.'"
