Jerry Jones hasn’t had much to say about Tony Romo’s health, but he has plenty to say about the status of some other injured Cowboys—and it’s good news for a team already counted as being among the league’s best.
Jones made an appearance on 105.3 The Fan and discussed the return of some key players, including wide receiver Dez Bryant, cornerback Orlando Skandrick and defensive end Demarcus Lawrence.
Via John Machota, co-host of Candidly Cowboys podcast, Jones said he expects all three to play against the Philadelphia Eagles Oct. 30.
Bryant, who’s been sidelined since suffering a knee injury Sept. 25, said at the beginning of the week that he’s ready to go and would definitely be on the field against the Eagles.
Scandrick’s been out since Week 2 with nagging hamstring injuries, and Lawrence, who was suspended the first four games of the season for violating the NFL’s substance abuse policy, suffered a shoulder injury just 17 snaps into his Week 5 return against the Cincinnati Bengals.
Meanwhile, Jones did offer one tiny tidbit of info on Romo, saying it was “up in the air” as to whether he would practice next week.
